This class is designed to introduce the key concepts and essential tools and procedures of metalwork and welding very concisely.
The class will introduce key concepts: What is steel? Mild Steel versus Tool Steel, high and low carbon, simple metals identification, ductility and tensile strength.
We will demonstrate, discuss, and handle a variety of tools including cnc plasma cutter, horizontal bandsaw, abrasive saw, step and bench shears, nibbler, die grinders, milling machine, lathe and mig welding equipment.
The class geared toward orienting you to a broad variety of metalworking tools and techniques rather than producing a small project. The class is fun and educational. It is a way to put a toe in the water and see whether metalwork is for you.
Classes average about eight persons. Class is limited to fifteen persons.
