WLD101: TIG Welding SBU

Welding is the process of fusing materials together.

Learn how to use the basic TIG (tungsten inert gas) welding equipment in this Safety and Basic Use (SBU) class. Get started creating quality weld beads on mild steel. While this class practices on thin steel, the TIG welder is capable of welding material up to 1/2” thick.

With extensive practice, TIG welding can be used with a wide variety of different metals, producing a very pure, precise, and attractive weld.

Project: No project; just guided practice with an instructor.

Prerequisites: None. However, successful completion of MTL103: Basic Metal Shop will provide access to the cutting and grinding tools needed for working with metal.

Equipment access: TIG welder

Supervision requirements: During class, all 12- to 15-year-old students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is also enrolled in the class.

When using the welder outside of class time, 12- to 15-year-old members must be accompanied and supervised by a parent or guardian who has passed the SBU.

Safety
  • Mandatory: Closed-toed shoes made of natural fibers or leather, natural fiber or leather long sleeved shirt, natural fiber or leather long pants. Welding hood, gloves and jacket will be provided by TechShop.

  • Advisable: Leather welding jacket, leather welding pants, leather boots, respirator, and hearing protection.


Once you take and successfully pass this class, you can use this equipment for your projects whenever you work at TechShop as a member!

WLD201: TIG Welding 2 - Aluminum

After completing the TIG Safety and Basic Use (SBU) class, you can try your skills in a different material.

Aluminum has characteristics that require specific equipment setup, metal preparation, and torch operation. In this class, you will practice specific joints and improve weld bead quality under the guidance of an instructor. Lap, butt, corner, and fillet welds will all be discussed and individual students will perform at their own rates. Emphasis will be placed on visual inspection of welds and heat zone theory, so that you gain a better understanding of what a quality weld joint really looks like.

Prerequisite: Successful completion of TIG Welding SBU prior to taking this class.

Safety: Long pants and a long-sleeved shirt in natural fibers are required clothing in the Hot Shop. Always wear closed-toed shoes at TechShop.

WLD103: Oxy-Acetylene Torch SBU

In this Safety and Basic Use (SBU) class, learn to use an oxy-acetylene torch to cut and weld steel. Oxy welding uses a mixture of fuel and oxygen powerful enough to join two pieces of steel or gentle enough to braze aluminum, stainless steel, or copper. Make durable welds with this versatile, fun, and easy-to-learn torch.

Project: Guided practice with an instructor

Prerequisites: None. However, MTL103: Basic Metal Shop is recommended.

Equipment access:Oxy-acetylene torch

Minimum age: 16

Supervision requirements: During class, all 16- and 17-year-old students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who is also enrolled in the class.

When using the welder outside of class time, 16- and 17-year-old members must be accompanied and supervised by a parent or guardian who has passed the SBU.

Safety
  • Mandatory: Closed-toed shoes made of natural fibers or leather, natural fiber or leather long sleeved shirt,natural fiber or leather long pants. Welding glasses, gloves, and jacket will be provided by TechShop.

  • Advisable: Leather welding jacket, leather welding pants, leather boots, respirator
