Event description
A basic introduction to TIG Welding.

About this Event

TIG Welding (Tungsten Inert Gas) is the next step in furthering your welding skills. The sequel to MIG Welding 101, this course goes over the different types of welds, techniques, and how to prepare your material for welding, tacking, and laying down a simple bead. You will also learn about the specific safety considerations associated with the TIG Welder. TIG Welding is especially useful for thinner gauge metals, stainless steel and aluminum. It practically the same as MIG welding but with more technique.
