In this class you will get to choose from a variety of metal cutting, grinding and sanding methods to prepare metal for welding. Just like my welding class. This class is customized for every student. It is a 2 hour class every Saturday and Sunday 1pm-3pm.
Each person that takes my class will qualify for discounts on welding equipment and gear at Airgas Welding Supply. They will also be entered into a drawing to win a Yes Welder welding helmet.
The processes I offer:
Plasma Cutting- Specialized cutting process that requires and air compressor with high air flow and high voltage to cut up to 5/8 inch steel. The most expensive material cutting option.
Oxygen and Acetylene torch cutting- Doesn't use electricity. Can cut steel anywhere you can carry the oxygen and acetylene tanks to. With the right size of torch and pressure you can cut over 1 inch of steel.
Chop saw- creates a nice straight cut with low heat input. can cut up to 5 inch thick material. you can buy different blades for different materials.
4 1/2 inch grinder with a cut off wheel- Uses a skinny wheel to cut up to 2 inches of material. With a 4 1/2 inch grinder you can cut, grind and sand just by switch out the wheel.
Belt Sander- Used to clean mill scale off of metal and clean edges after cutting.
This class can be taken two different ways.
One way is as a follow up to my "Learn how to weld" class. The other is you can prep your own material to use in my welding class. At the end of the class I will explain how to get a discount at Airgas Welding Supply and have you fill out a raffle ticket for a chance to win a Yes Welder welding helmet.
If you have a specific project in mind that you are prepping metal for please bring your own material. It can be purchased in large sizes and varieties at "Standard Steel" or "Metal Supermarkets". Smaller sizes and varieties can be purchased at "Home Depot" or "Ace Hardware".
If you just want to learn how to use the tools or are prepping metal for the welding class I offer I will supply the material.
Space is limited. So only 2 people per class.
