This course includes oxygen-acetylene gas welding review, basic arc welding, inert gas welding (MIG and TIG) and plasma cutting. The class emphasizes performance in arc and inert gas welding and the proper use of metal working equipment. Students in the Agriculture Mechanics shop will use agriculture industry based welding equipment.
This course begins with a review of the student’s basic knowledge of electric arc welding and applied skills of oxygen-acetylene welding learned in Ag Mech 1. Students will learn and demonstrate approved welding and metal working techniques.
A take home welding project, paid for by the student, will be constructed as a concluding project of the class.
