4:00 PM, TIG Welding w/ Joe $100

Category: Metalworking
Date & Time: March 26, 2021 , 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Class Fee: $100.00 (Non-member: $115.00) | Student Capacity: 3 | Students Enrolled: 1

Description

Required dress: Natural fiber long pants, natural fiber shirt, and closed toe shoes (natural fiber being cotton or wool)

Optional:  If you want your own TIG consumables, you can buy the parts for “17 series torch”. Most welding gas supply shops carry it, Amazon and Cyberweld.com. I would get 2% thoriated or purple tops 1/16" or 3/32" diameter tungsten rod. Get ER70S- steel fill rod in 1/16" size. 

Curriculumn:

  • Safety
  • How to sharpen tungsten
  • How to weld steel beads
  • How to tack weld
  • Cover the use of the tools in the metal shop

 

Things not covered in this class:

  • Aluminum is not covered. I think the pathway through steel tig welding will help you get comfortable with the process prior to adding two more variables when moving onto AL.

9:00 AM, Metal Lathe w/ Joe

Category: Metalworking
Date & Time: March 27, 2021 , 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Class Fee: $100.00 (Non-member: $115.00) | Student Capacity: 3 | Students Enrolled: 0

Description

Why: The metal lathe is one of the 2 tools you could use to rebuild the entire world. Its versatility is very understated. Prior to the invention of the metal lathe we could only get close to being round. Making spacers, turning a new handle, properly drilling a hole in round stock, and cleaning up round stock.

Update: I got some new Iscar carbide inserts that are capable cutting steel and aluminum. The main difference is the rpms for the two types of metal. 

Topics covered in this course:

  • Safety
  • How to use the aluminum chop saw for cutting stock
  • Parts of the metal lathe
  • How to indicate a part
  • How to face a part
  • How to turn a part
  • How to center drill, drill, and use a boring bar
  • How to knurl
  • How to part a part
  • Clean up procedure

 

You will get a handout, a greater appreciation of the metal lathe, an Iscar carbide insert, and an aluminum keepsake.
