This was our second welding training of the year and was another great success. In our group of attendees was a couple of father/sons working on their fire pits together and building memories as a family. After demonstrating how to do an emergency trail repair weld using 2 batteries and jumper cables, we went over a few different styles/types of welders including arc, mig, and tig. We also went over the different types of welding rod/filler including rod, flux, and solid along with which is shielded and non-shielded. After explaining the machines and some safety items, each participant got a chance to practice welding on scrap steel til they were comfortable and laying down some decent beads. They then moved on to welding up their jeep fire pits all on their own.
We are thankful to all who attended and look forward to our future trainings.
