*Welding experience is required, must know how to lay down a bead*
Join us for our first intermediate stainless TIG Class. This intermediate/advanced course focuses on mild steel and stainless-steel tube joints of various thicknesses, in addition to mild steel notched/coped joint welding. These style joints are very commonly used in exhaust fabrication, header fabrication, roll cage fabrication, boiler work and more.
This course is designed to provide as much hands on touch time as possible. The end goal is to better prepare the students to have the welding knowledge needed to ensure proper welds are being laid on the work they fabricate.
Each class features 3 welding stations, using HTP TIG welders, with 2 participants per station. Class size is limited to 6 participants and the cost is $250 per participant. Reservations will be taken on a first come basis. Please register online or call our office at 847-357-0700. Classes are non-refundable.
The appropriate attire is required: long sleeves or welding sleeves, close toed shoes, pants, TIG gloves, welding helmet, and a respirator.
