TIG Welding w/ Andres
Required dress: Natural fiber long pants, natural fiber shirt, (natural fiber being cotton or wool) and closed toe shoes.
Optional: If you want your own TIG consumables, you can buy the parts for “17 series torch”. Most welding gas supply shops carry it, Amazon and Cyberweld.com. I would get 2% thoriated or purple tops 1/16" or 3/32" diameter tungsten rod. Get ER70S- steel fill rod in 1/16" size.

Things not covered in this class:
- Aluminum is not covered. I think the pathway through steel tig welding will help you get comfortable with the process prior to adding two more variables when moving onto AL.
