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.

This welding course focused mostly on gas-less MIG welding and was great value for money. In our group there were plenty of welders to go around, so we all got quite a bit of practical welding experience on the day. There was a well balanced mix of safety instruction, how to's, hands-on welding and valuable appraisal from the teacher, who had many years of experience. Helpful advice was also given for those who were planning to buy a MIG welder. This is a great beginner's welding course and will benefit those who would like to begin welding safely and effectively.

The class was perfect for me at a beginner level but also gave plenty of extra info to those who knew a little more, like my Dad who joined me. The teacher was great, very clear with instructions and extremely helpful in advising how to set up your own equipment at home. You don’t make something to walk away with, but it certainly gives you the skills and info to be able to go home, keep practicing and create something!
