Welding Demonstration

by on Nov.30, 2011, under Events, Meetings, News, Presentations, Workshops

You asked for it, and we got it! One of most requested items in our events poll was welding, and our very own member Kit has graciously offered to demonstrate the basics this Saturday at noon at the Space. Please be aware that this is a hands-on demonstration only – it is not a replacement for any actual welding training, and can be very dangerous.

We will be covering the three types of arc welding as well as plasma cutting, starting with a safety lecture, a group how-to, then a short one-on-one section.  After everyone has been shown the basics and demonstrates a thorough understanding of the concepts and inherent dangers, we will offer participants the chance to try it themselves.

If you wish to participate, please sign up at http://www.midsouthmakers.org/events so that we can know how many people to expect.
