New to gas welding? Just want to brush up your basic skills? Myron, Bill, and Dick have taught this class for several years, focusing on safety and hands-on learning. Students will be working at individual stations on a shared workbench, with equipment and stock provided. If time permits, bonus demonstrations by Bill and Myron will show advanced techniques and uses of the oxyacetylene torch.
Bring: all supplies and equipment supplied, but students may bring their own torch if they’d like.
Safety gear for sparks and melted/hot metal: common safety garb (leather footwear and cotton, leather, or wool clothing-no cuffs or frayed edges) plus eye protection with a #5 lens: goggles or glasses will work but a face shield with the #5 lens is highly recommended. If you wear corrective lenses, bring those, too. Cloth cap is optional, gloves are recommended.
Lunch: bring your own lunch each day
