We begin with a discussion of welding safety topics: the potential for burns, flashes, radiation, fumes, and other hazards. Students will learn about rod selection, welding procedures, weld penetration in to base metal and compare the differences between welding machines and different welding methods. There will be an opportunity to do basic ARC welding, run some weld beads on carbon steel plate, and weld two pieces of metal together in a T shape.
Bring a closed lid bottle of water. Wear closed toe shoes, long pants and sleeves, cotton clothing only (no synthetics - even shoes). Leather aprons are best but optional. This class will be held indoors.
