Class Description
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.

Class Goals 
The goal of this class will be to train a student to the point where they can weld on Artisan’s Asylum equipment safely and independently.

Class Dates
Mondays; 3/2/20-3/23/20

Materials Provided
Weld helmets, gloves, tungsten electrodes are provided. Students should wear boots or closed-toed shoes as well as a heavy-duty long-sleeved shirt, such as flannel or a heavy work shirt. Information for students interested in acquiring any equipment of your own will be covered in class. If you wear glasses, bring the ones you use for computing or reading, as close-up vision is important.

$20; payable to the Instructor on the first day of class
