MIG Welding for Beginners is a bimonthly class series that introduces the MIG welding process for hobbyists and home users. MIG (Metal- Inert Gas) is an arc welding process that uses wire fed from a spool to carry the arc and deposit filler metal, while shielded by an inert gas mixture of Argon and CO2. The class focuses on learning the fundamentals of safety, material prep, and tool use for welding on mild carbon steel.
In this class, you will learn how to prepare and set up a workpiece, set up and safely run the welder, and successfully join pieces of metal together. You will practice running several beads, and then weld small plates together to practice and demonstrate basic joints used in welding. Anything you weld on is yours to take home at the end of the class.
