Welding for Homeowners
Household projects got you stumped, weld them out, in Welding For
Homeowners. Students will learn basic metalworking and fabrication
skills by turning house-hold project ideas into 3-D realities. We will
spend the first part of the class learning shop and tool safety
through an assigned project. This project will teach basic metal
fabrication techniques: MIG welding, grinders, oxy-acetylene/plasma
torch, and the use of a shear. The remaining course time will be spent
refining your designs and putting your new skills to work by
completing a personal metalworking project. Students are encouraged to think outside the box, bring a sketch book, and be ambitious for what
household project has got you stumped. Students will be required to
pay for additional steel needed for any personal project.
