Selecting a process to learn.

Earlier, we did mention the fact that some people want to learn oxy fuel welding. Most people are quite intimidated by an Oxy-fuel torch setup. There’s volatile, explosive pressurized gas, knobs everywhere at finger’s reach, hot flame continuously shooting out, and a quite heavy torch apparatus that must be kept under control at all times (to prevent catching everything on fire). Quite a few people do eventually buy one, even if they reluctantly do so.

TIG welding is often the process that you see depicted in these custom car and Bike “Build-it” programs. Often it is a brief glamourous shot of if it that makes those wanting to weld drool in envy. But in reality, TIG welding is seldom the process a new welder should want to start out learning. It is by far the hardest to learn, and just as hard to master. Technique and skill in TIG welding requires lots of patience, practice, and natural ability.

Although getting a good welding course or two under your belt as you start your welding hobby or career is the best idea, that may not be practical for many people. But don’t completely discount it before you give up on it. Local high schools and colleges often offer welding courses at night. Even many local county agent’s offices or young farmer’s organizations can offer short seminars or classes. (If they don’t offer them, then ask them to!) And even sometimes you may be able to get private tutelage from the local ag or shop teacher in the high school.
