Christian just told me that 123 Tompkins Community Space (map) is offering a free workshop on TIG welding Tomorrow, 4 March 2008, at noon-o-clock. I don't think I can make it (see note about new job in previous post), but I wish I could. Why?
Well, I say that I know how to weld, by which I mean I can use an oxy-acetaline kit, and I can use a MIG welder. Still, that limits me to steel. TIG welding, on the other hand, can be used to weld a greater variety of metals, such as aluminum, magnesium, copper, and alloys thereof. If you're interesting in bicycle frame building, for instance, this is the kind of welding you want to learn (in addition, of course, to brazing).
Additionally, I'll plug this by reminding everyone that it's free, rare for anything educational in NYC. Show up, enjoy it, and... you know, leave a donation if you have fun.
