In this fast-paced one week course, students will receive instruction and get hands-on experience in a vast array of metal fabrication processes. Techniques covered will be oxy-acetylene welding/cutting/brazing/forging, plasma cutting, MIG and TIG welding, forming/bending/shaping sheet and stock, machining on a mill and lathe, material selection, and finishing options. Students will learn safe and effective cutting and drilling with the angle grinder, drill press and bandsaw. Emphasis will be placed on MIG welding technique, priceless tricks of the trade and safety. Students will leave with the confidence to add custom metalwork to their next wood project, and some fabricated pieces as a testament to their new skill set.
