Intro to Welding


Solid State Depot is hosting a three-part series on basic welding and metal fabrication. Completion of the course will earn you a certification to use our MIG and TIG machines. We'll teach you about safe and effective use of equipment, material preparation, machine settings, and the techniques you'll need to get started with steel and aluminum fabrication.

The courses will involve a combination of group instruction and hands-on practice, so we will limit each class to five people. Cost is $50 per class for SSD members, $90 for non-members.

Part 1: Overview, safety, and intro to MIG
Part 2: Intro to TIG welding
Part 3: Techniques for metal fabrication

We will provide auto-darkening welding helmets and gloves. Please wear natural-fiber long sleeves, jeans, and closed-toe shoes, preferably leather.
