This basic Oxy/Acetylene welding workshop is for beginners and involves hands on gas welding of steel. Learn Basic Oxy/Acetylene (gas) welding, puddle control, and filler rod technique. Oxy/Acetylene is the basis for all other welding techniques. If you learn to gas weld, you will be able to make strong functional welds using other welding equipment. In this class you will learn to gas weld, cut your own material, and make at least three different types of fusion weld. Basic torch technique, filler rod use, and welding of basic joints will be covered. Steel, filler rod, and welding rigs materials are provided. 

All materials and equipment provided. We have welding gloves but you must wear full coverage clothing. We have some welding goggles, but you may want to purchase your own, shade 4 or 5. Please wear full coverage clothing, and closed toe shoes or boots. We will begin instruction in the Green Room before moving on to the welding shop.
