Intro to MIG Welding // Nov 19

Metal Inert Gas(MIG) welding is the process of using electricity and argon gas to weld two pieces of metal together. It is the simplest and easiest form of welding, making it accessible for the average person to learn.
This 5 hour workshop will teach you how to use and understand the components of the MIG welding machine. You will learn how to weld steel, how to cut metal on the horizontal and vertical bandsaw and get an overview of the metal fabrication shop and the variety of metalworking tools in it.
