Now that you've been through the beginning welding and fabrication class, take this opportunity to spend some time on the TIG torch and hone your skills as a fabricator. TIG welding gives you the ability to make small clean welds that are super strong. It also broadens your capability to work with non ferrous metals such as stainless steel and bronze. This skill is used in the high end fabrication world as well as with bronze casting artists. Weather you have a specific project in mind or you just want to learn this valuable skill, this will be a great way to continue your interest in metalwork.
