Description

Ever wanted to know how to join two pieces of metal together? Create a cool sculpture or piece of furniture? Or just wanted to wear the cool mask? Welding for Beginners is for you.

Beginners learn basic stick and mig welding of mild steel, on both older and new style machines. The class will learn all the basic welding techniques required to work on small construction and art projects. Also, the many traps in buying your own machine will be discussed.

About Phil Warnecke

A handyman by trade, Phil has been welding for over 40 years, mainly cars, but also household projects like gates, fences, posts and beams. Over the years, he has taught basic welding leisure classes to novices, but the escalating prices for machines, gas, and even steel has almost stopped hobby welding courses.

New inverter technology has made the machines lighter, smaller, cheaper, and provides a more stable arc, making them easier to use. So home welding is affordable again, and Phil is leading the charge.

Waste of time and money. Maybe it was a bad session but I can't understand how this course has such great reviews if it is regularly taught in the way I experienced. Nothing against the person conducting the course, he was lovely enough. Although Teacher he is not! We spent 1.5 hours listening to several stories being repeated over and over again. I felt as though there was no course structure and no consistent outline being followed. Which would not have been an issue, if we had actually covered something other than "the cost of machines has come down so much now' and "calling out 'eyes' every time you start welding has save hundreds if not thousands of peoples sight since the inception of the protocol" The cramped welding 'stations' if you could call them that, consisted of five, 50cm cubicles situated around a single plastic trestle table in the middle of the room. The table was covered in fibro, which we heard the story of its necessity for fire and heat safety several times over. This setup meant there was 360degrees of welding in the middle of the room, no area in the room was safe from the welding flash unless you faced the wall. Since this took place next to the open garage door, passersby were also unknowingly exposed to the flash if they happened to look in. In addition to the continuous talking in circles I felt that very little if ANY actual technique was spoken about even though this is in the course description. There was little time for one on one instruction, which when it did happen was the most valuable 1-2 minutes of the 2.5 hours. All in all I feel money and time would have been better spent on a machine from Bunnings and Youtube lessons.
