    In this two session class you will learn how to safely use the Vertical Milling Machine. The Mill is one of the most useful machines for making simple to complex parts out of metal or plastic. We will cover work holding, cutters, the rotary table, and how to deal with different materials. 

    After completion of the class you will be able to make that part that they just don’t have at the hardware store. You will leave the class with a set of coasters or other useful items that you have made.

    Additional Materials Fee of $5 for plastic and metal used during class will be added to the tuition and then totaled when you register on line. If you are writing a check please be sure to include the materials fee.

    This class is the second of a 4 part series.  It is the next step once students complete the prerequisite class: MIG (Metal Inert Gas) Welding Part 1. The emphasis of the class will be on technique development and practice.

    This is a hands-on opportunity to review and practice what was learned in Part 1. The MIG welding class is limited to 4 participants and focuses on hands-on mentoring and practice. Each participant will have the use of a fully equipped MIG welding station.

    The class will review the safety briefing, the introduction to welding theory and materials and the set up process for MIG welding on a Miller 215 Welder. The emphasis of the class will be on technique development and practice.

    There will be approximately an hour and a half of hands-on instruction in making a weld, different types of welds, and torch manipulation.  Students will practice butt welds, lap welds, corner welds, T welds, and edge welds. Over the shoulder mentoring will be from a professional MIG welder.

    At the end of class, students should feel comfortable with the operation of the welding machine and the MIG welding process. Students should be comfortable undertaking independent practice of welding technique or starting their own projects. 

    Beginning level for students who have completed Introduction to MIG #1.  Students must wear long sleeves and long pants in natural fibre. Dress warmly, the studio may be cold.

    When registering for class on line you will be required to pay an added $7 materials fee. This will then be added to the base price of the class and totaled. If paying by check, please add the $7 materials fee.

    If only one student has registered 60 hours before the class, the class will be cancelled.

    The emphasis of the class will be on the preparation, layout, clamping, and fabrication of precise welded joints. Students will prepare a square or rectangular 90 degree frame or another other project that demonstrated proper fabrication techniques. Studio goal is satisfaction with completion of a series of precisely welded joints.

    BARN will provide:

    • Welding hood
    • Welding gloves
    • Protective welding jackets or sleeves if desired
    • Hand tools
    • Welders and welding station
    • Practice materials
