New for 2021! The two-night Introduction to Welding & Fabrication Course will get you started on your custom fabrication dreams!

This course is split over two consecutive Mondays, giving you twice as much time on the tools than our original course and you’ll be making your very own Helmet stand to take home and display proudly.

Over the two nights, your learn all the basics around designing templates, which metals are best to use and when, correct measuring and cutting techniques - you know… measure twice cut once and how to use a variety of tools to get the best result. We’ll touch on Angle grinders, Cold Saws,  and more.

We’ll then dive in to the voodoo magic that is welding. Covering basic theory of welding, with specific instruction on How to MIG, TIG & ARC so you get to experience a bit of everything. Information covered includes Safety, Machine set up, How to weld with each specific technique and understanding whether a weld is sound or not.

Practical instruction will consist of showing a variety of different welds, such as How to do fillet welds, butt welds and corner welds, using each type of welding process. If you want to tack on a bolt, learn how to make a seat pan, weld up gussets, attach two pieces of metal together or understand the black magic surrounding welding, this is the course for you.

Who is this course right for?

The Introduction to Welding & Fabrication Course is perfect for those that are keen to have a crack for the first time, and those that have some experience with metal working but are wanting to learn better techniques.

Important info:

  • Enclosed footwear, long sleeves and non-synthetic clothing are an absolute must. Welding can cause serous skin irritation.
  • Please note the course is limited to 8 attendees per class and you will be teamed up in pairs.
  • You don’t need to bring anything with you, everything needed is provided, including drinks and snacks.
