|Recurring Class (See all)
Mondays; 5/4/20 - 5/25/20

Class fee: $345 / Materials fee: $20. This class is designed to introduce students to the process of TIG welding, a precise type of welding most often used in the manufacture of spaceframe structures like bike frames and roll cages. Students will learn how to weld primarily 4130 chromoly steel tubing, as well as different types of materials, shapes, and joints, and will learn how to use a range of supporting equipment (drill press, hole saws, grinders, etc.) and processes that come with welding.

Tool Training: Tablesaw Fundamentals

May 5 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

This class is designed to introduce students to using the table saw which is often the most important power tool in wood shops and woodworking. The focus will be as much hands-on time as is possible so that students will leave the class confident in their ability to explore many of the additional ways to use the table saw on their own or in further classes. Techniques and procedures will be applicable to any table saw. This class will introduce the specific set up and safety procedures of the SawStop table saw.
