* This class has a prerequisite. See below.
Make a basic Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) bead and progress to the techniques and practices needed for TIG welded joints.
The goal for this class is to feel comfortable operating the welding machine and with the TIG welding process in performing different welds.
From making a basic TIG bead to the techniques for TIG welded joints, the class focuses on how to perform different kinds of TIG welds – butt, lap, “T,” corner, and edge.
TIG welding requires more dexterity and practice than Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding. Students are encouraged to use open studios to practice their technique and develop confidence.
This is the second class in the TIG welding series.
