Join Richard Furniss as he covers welding theory and safety using oxy/acetylene equipment. This class is designed to provide enough information and examples to give the participant the confidence to try welding at home.
This kind of welding can be done outside on a BBQ grill to create works of art. Suggested material for home practice will be copper rods, flat copper sheets and thin metal tubing.
Examples of objects with good welds and bad welds will be passed around for inspection and discussion. There will also be a textbook handout (in PDF format and hard copy) that will help get the participant started in welding, including what equipment to buy, where to get supplies, to setup and safety.
This class will be repeated on May 24th (Saturday). If there is sufficient demand, a hands-on practice series will be considered.
**No welding will be done during the class as our zoning prohibits welding on-site.
