Intro to Metal Shop
Interested in making something out of metal? This 4-hour class seeks to provide you with the fundamental skills and confidence necessary to safely operate within the ADX metal shop, including how to safely clean, cut, drill, grind, form and weld mild steel.
MIG Welding Basics
Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding is a great way to join mild steel quickly. MIG is extremely versatile and the easiest type of welding to learn. With practice, you will be able to make strong welds on steel and aluminum. This 4-hour class will teach you the fundamental skills and build the confidence needed to get started with serious welding. You'll learn how to properly set up the machine, setup your work piece, and the properties of a good weld.
TIG Welding Basics
Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding produces the cleanest welds, provides the welder the greatest amount of control, but takes the most practice to master. This 4-hour class will give you the fundamental skills and build the confidence needed to take your welding to the next level. You'll learn how to properly set up the machine, clean and maintain your tools, and the properties of a good weld. Special attention will be given to the safety of the welder and those working around them.
Wood and Metal Table Fabrication
This 4-session series is the full package! Start in the Wood Shop by collecting, arranging, cutting, and gluing up exotic wood scraps for a unique tabletop; plane the completed boards, and add finishing oil or poly topcoat. While in the metal shop, prepare and cut metal for a stand, weld, grind new welds and rough edges, and paint if desired. Finally, assemble the tabletop to the stand for a totally unique piece of furniture, all under the tutelage of a very talented ADX Maker.
