Last Friday night I took a TIG welding class at theTech Shop (1) in Menlo Park. It was the first time I had ever tried welding. I had a blast! It was only an hour long, but we learned the basics of TIG welding. I learned how to weld a butt joint and a corner joint. The instructor, Justin Poulson, was patient, knowledgeable, and skilled.
The Tech Shop offers a lot of classes, ranging from welding, to CNC milling, to industrial sewing. And once you get checked out on the equipment you can use it on your own time for your own projects.
I’m looking forward to taking more classes. Next up: oxy-acetylene welding. Or maybe sewing.
