Question from Michaelo C.
Hello! I see some classes are too full and half the students don’t get around to welding or finishing their project let alone fine finishing. Has that been addressed? Also is there a day or time that is the smallest of all classes with the most effective instructor? Thank you
Answer from anonymous
We do our very best to give our students an exceptional welding experience. Rarely have we had an issue with someone not getting to weld or completing their project. Our cube class you can expect to weld for at least 2 hours. We have 5 MIG welders, 4 TIG welders, 2 band saws, plenty of hand tools and safety gear and 10 Auto Darkening Miller Welding Helmets. Class sizes are typically limited to 6 depending on the class. All of our instructors are effective.

Really good instructors, very safety conscience, good fun. I have a lovely cube now. Excellent intro adventure into how to weld and what is welding. Enough beginner welds to improve as one worked. I would like to spend some time learning wire speed, voltage, and how it corresponds to gauge of the steel, but I suppose this would be beyond a beginner. So this left me wanting more advanced classes. Thank you for the time the instructor and assistant took!

Paul was a fantastic instructor. Patient and passionate about what he does, he displayed a wealth of knowledge tying in all kinds of information. My friends and I had a great time and it all flew by so fast. I'd highly recommend this class. Just fair warning that long grinding times definitely leaves some temporary soreness and loss of nerve sensitivity in your fingers.
