Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast

Aug 6, 2018

Thanks for listening to episode 103 of the Welding Tips and Tricks Podcast!  For this episode we reached out to April Wilkerson who you may know from her popular YouTube channel.  We wanted to talk with April because she is new to welding and wanted to hear her perspective.  A long with what got her into the maker community doing small odds and ends to building her own shop!  If you've been thinking about starting something this episode might take that spark and light that fire!  Enjoy!

NYC CNC Intro to Tig Welding Class 
Do you want personal and hands on TIG Weld training from professionals in the industry? Roy Crumrine and Jonathan Lewis have partnered with John Saunders of Saunders Machine Works in Zanesville, OH to offer private welding training for beginners and advanced. To date we have our Intro to TIG Welding Class designed for those who either have absolutely no welding experience to those who are hobbiests that want to up their game. In this two day class we will be going over Welding Safety, TIG welding basics, filler metal selection, tungsten prep and a lot more. What you really are looking forward to is the hands on welding you will receive from Roy and Myself. Our classes are limited to 6 students each which allows the best experience possible. At the end of the two days you WILL be able to lay down a decent weld and be ready to go back to your home shop and build on the knowledge we gave to you.
