Under the guidance of an instructor you'll use your creativity, and basic welding, cutting, and bending techniques to make cool stuff out of our diverse collection of scrap metal objects: nuts, bolts, chain, etc.!
We’ll have a few simple designs to choose from (chain heart, pen holder, stick men, coat hooks, etc.) but you’re encouraged to devise your own unique design.
Prior welding experience is great, however we will review basic MIG welding techniques, metal cutting, grinding, as well as the basics of hand tool use and shop safety.
What to wear: At RMM, you must dress safely and appropriately. Arrive for class in all-natural fiber clothing (100% cotton), long pants, and closed-toe, closed-heel shoes with socks that protect up to the ankle. Long hair must be tied back. Nylon, polyester, spandex, or other synthetics are not allowed around machines, equipment, or processes that can produce hot fragments, sparks, or flames. Additional protective gear will be provided as needed.
About the Instructor: Stephen Charles is a former Welding Engineer with many years of experience in production welding and custom fabrication. He has taught hundreds of beginners in the basics of welding and fabrication. Also, he’s pretty funny, so if you don’t have a sense of humor just smile and nod when everyone else laughs and maybe no one will notice.
