About the Course
Mig welding is a great entry point for anyone wanting to learn how to weld metal. This welding class requires no previous experience. Metal Inert Gas, MIG for short is the hot glue gun of steel. A wire is fed through a gun that carries a low voltage. When it contacts your workpiece the fireworks begin as the wire shorts out and starts melting steel before your eyes. Like anything else to do it right there are some guidlines that will make your work stronger and welds that don't look like bird poop.
This process is great for DIY, car restoration, offroad builds and mods and home improvements. This welding class is oriented toward the hobbyist and enthusiast. It is short form that gives you the fundamentals to get you started on a good path. Our classes cover metal prep, setting up the machine, protective equipment and gear along with the basic hand techniques to deliver what the process requires. At the end of the class you will understand what equipment to buy and the fundamentals of the process which you can take home to continue to practice. You can also opt to become a member of Gearheads and use our shop and continue to get some supervision. It is tons of fun and you will learn a valuable life skill.
