Learn to TIG Weld!

In addition to our machining classes, we offer TIG welding classes in house at Saunder’s Machine Works, with the help of Jonathan Lewis from Superior Welding.

“By lunch on the first day, I was laying down beads that were better than my previous 18 months-“

“Before the Learn to TIG class, I had been fumbling around trying to “perfect” my skill by building on incorrect fundamentals, and repeating mistakes I wasn’t even aware that I was making.  As a high school welding teacher, and newcomer to TIG welding, I thought my nearly 30 years of manipulating a puddle would see me through.  I couldn’t have been more wrong.  
 
By lunch on the first day, I was laying down beads that were better than my previous 18 months of beating my head against the wall, and it only went uphill from there.  There are things you just can’t learn without having an expert watch over your shoulder and correct your technique.  I had the unskilled hat-trick going on – I was traveling too slow, my arc length was too long, and I wasn’t shielding the filler wire in the gas shield.  There were many more (trust me) but those seemed to be my worst repeat offenders.  Roy was there to point out the mistakes, and help me correct them.  We welding aluminum, carbon, stainless, and even had the opportunity to lay a bead on titanium.  My meager skills had taken a monster leap forward!
 
The confidence I gained has helped me tremendously in the classroom, and the same would be true for everyone’s workplace.  Instead of speaking about a technique that I had only seen in a video, I could now speak about it first hand.  Now I’m able to correctly diagnose when my students are having a problem, because I had the same problem, and I know how they can work through it.
 
I can’t speak highly enough about this class.  Whether you’re a hobbyist, educator, or full time welder, you’re going to get your money’s worth.  To be honest, prior to attending, I thought the cost of the training was high, but after seeing where my skills are after the class, it was worth ten times what they’re charging!  It is definitely an investment in my talent that has already paid dividends!  I would do it again in a heartbeat, and wish I had gone a year and  a half ago!”

“Since taking the class almost a year ago, I’ve made close to $20,000 just in TIG work alone.”

I get the question all the time, “How did you learn how to weld”. The answer is simple, I taught myself(somewhat). Learning how to TIG weld was the one area of welding that I didn’t want to waste a lot of time and money learning how to do. 
 
I was getting a lot of request to do TIG work, but I kept finding a way to use MIG. Instead of messing up on a job, wasting material and/or money, I decided to take the LearnTig class from Roy and Jonathan. One of the things I really liked about this class, is the hands on nature of it. I got to ask as many questions as I wanted to and also got plenty of hood time under their helpful eye. Since taking the class almost a year ago, I’ve made close to $20,000 just in TIG work alone. I highly recommend this class if you’re just getting into TIG or you want to raise your current level from where you are now. 
 
Roy and Jonathan are great guys that still continue to mentor me today.

“-their instruction helped me enjoy welding more than ever.”

“For those of you that are sitting on the fence trying to decide is the cost of the Into to TIG Welding worth it ? Yes it is. Roy and Jonathan are great instructors. They make learning tig welding fun, and when learning is fun you retain more of what they are teaching. The small class size and the one on instruction is the best way to learn.  Their support after completing the class is great. I send them pictures and ask for comments on the welds and they return with instructions on how to improve the welds.

I’m not a welder by trade. I like welding as a hobby, and their instruction helped me enjoy welding more than ever.

So thanks to Roy and Jonathan for sharing their skills with tig welding.”

“I found this class to be worth every penny of the investment and recommend it highly.”

“I was introduced informally  to TIG welding in the 1970’s, but only used it infrequently for minor repairs around the shop.  After listening to the Welding Tips & Tricks Podcast, I realized a structured class from industry experts would help me develop better skills.  Beginning with a safety and technical introduction, we were issued all the equipment we would need to start welding immediately.  The instructor, Roy Crumrine, used a combination of demonstrations and coaching to progressively build our skills.  The small class size allowed the instructor to devote time to each individual so they progressed at a pace in tune with their skills. The exercises allowed us to learn more complex skills, welding different materials, thicknesses, positions, joint types, and processes.  The clean, modern facility was equipped with several types of welders, allowing us to practice adjusting features such as frequency, balance, pulse, etc.  A wide variety of auto-darkening helmets, materials, filler metals, and clamps gave us  a chance to learn what works best for each person so we can make informed purchasing decisions when we buy equipment later.  I found this class to be worth every penny of the investment and recommend it highly.”
