About The Event
BOAR is hosting a make your own Jeep fire pit welding class in March. The class will be a very basic overview of welding, with hands on practice. We will have 3-4 machines available including a Lincoln 256 220v welder, portable Ready Welder(good practice for trail repairs), and an Eastwood 220v welder that does MIG/stick. We also plan to show how to weld with just 2 batteries and some jumper cables for those trail repair emergencies.
Before welding the pits, we will have some basic instruction on how the welders work and methods of using them. We then will have plenty of scrap metal to practice your welding skills on. After a bit of practice, everyone will weld up their own Jeep fire pit.
When: March 16th, 6:30pm
What: Jeep firepit and practice welding.
Cost: $80 per person. That includes all the materials for the fire pit, use of all the welders and other tools (grinders, flap disks, etc...), and scrap metal practice welding.
Other info: You will get to choose your fire pit style before the class. CJ, YJ, TJ, XJ, JK and the new JL style of pits are available. You do not have to pay for the scrap metal you practice on, unless you want to take it home with you. We will not be painting the pits at the event, but i will briefly go over the paint and method that i use to paint them so you can take care of it on your own should you choose.
Due to the size constraint of the shop, we need to limit the class to 8 people/couples. If you are interested, please let me know in the comments or via a private message. We will do the signups on a first come first served basis.
Final thoughts: Like most of our events, this event is ran by volunteers. The gentleman teaching the class is a certified welder with a large amount of experience, but isn't specifically a teacher of welding so please remember, this is a for fun class to learn the very basics. We are also fortunate to have Corbin from Teraflex at the training to assist with the class.
Hope to see you there!
