Event Overview

T.I.G. stands for Tungsten inert gas welding, also called GTAW. It is a nimble, precise, and slow way to join a very broad variety of metals including aluminum, mild steel, chrome-alloy, stainless steel, bronze, copper, and reactive metals like titanium.

TIG welding of aluminum is difficult and it requires practice and patience to master. This class will make a technical and difficult subject as easy as possible and greatly accelerate your process.

This is a small class of four persons Max. The bulk of the class time will be spent welding on mild steel and aluminum.

This class will show you how to weld aluminum with a T.I.G. welding machine. This is a very demanding process. We will demonstrate and discuss the process. You will spend the bulk of your time welding aluminum. We will also spend some time with Steel, but it is less demanding and we will spend accordingly less time with it.

We can provide access to instructional videos we have produced on this subject upon request so that you can review the material at will. These will be available through our patreon account.
