June 21 - 23 2019

East Durham NY 12423

Join us for an intro to TIG welding with Jody Collier (@weldmonger) and JD Brewer (@apexish) at Jimmy’s farmhouse. TIG welding can be precise, powerful, and challenging to do really well. It requires the use of both hands and one foot in most cases. With TIG you can make beautiful welds on steel, stainless, aluminum, chromoly, bronze, copper, titanium, magnesium–You can even weld dissimilar metals. And you can do it all with strong little welds that look beautiful.

About TIG: TIG uses electricity to melt the metal.  You generally hold the torch with the right hand, add filler metal with the left, and use a foot pedal to control the amperage (heat) as you go.  TIG allows you to adjust the temperature and filler deposition rate as you weld so it allows you to make much more precise welds.  They’ll generally be stronger and prettier than MIG and you can weld more exotic materials. No experience or prerequisites required but any welding experience will be helpful.
