Learn to weld?
 
I'd like to learn how to weld. Looking for suggestions on where to go for a class (preferably on the north side of town or in the Boulder area) or anyone here that might be willing to teach.

Emily Griffith has a realy good welding program. Made it all the way to TIG and Overhead ARC (PIA) before my time ran out. They work with you. Nights, days whenever.

also airgas on 8th and Zuni offers 4 hour classes on Saturdays might be pretty good for beginners and there are also advanced classes too :)

Start welding and post up pics, I was coached along well by some of the more seasoned welders here.

whatever you do, learn how to run an oxy fuel set up, and learn it well. That will serve you very, very well. oh, and buy a journeyman level set up. I have 3 machines and a torch set up. I grab the oxy fuel more than the several thousand dollars worth of electronics almost every time.

I had a teacher go to warren tech. But after going to school i would say for someone who just wants to do as a hobby buy a welder and lots of scrap and start making stuff. you tube is a good source to. all gets better with practice. i stated making stuff for the shop like this stool. the more time under the hood the better you get. I'm not the best and I'm up north but if you want to learn a few tricks come on up.
