Further Welding Skills - Introduced and Demonstrated
In this course, you will be able to build upon skills learned in the “The Basics of MIG Welding” and “Simple Body Repairs” courses, or come to it fresh if you just want to improve your welding skills.
Michael Coman demonstrates how to weld the different joints you might find on your restoration project. You will learn how to perform: - Plug welds - Butt welds - T-joints - Outside corner welds
Working on the bench is all well and good while you’re learning, but it’s rare to find joints that need welding in easily accessible locations on your car. With this in mind, Michael Coman teaches you how to weld the joints demonstrated in Class 1 in both vertical and upside-down positions in the horizontal plane. Michael also talks you through the various safety considerations you need to bear in mind when welding in these positions, as well as the adjustments you should make to your welder to simplify your job. Above all, listen for the sizzle.
Learn how to weld thick metal, and how to ascertain whether your welder is up to the job. In this class you’ll learn: - What duty cycle means in the real world. - How to prepare material for the best welding results, including removing millscale. - How to “VEE” the material to be welded for maximum penetration.
Our Peugeot 104 has rusted on the chassis leg and outrigger, so it’s time for Michael Coman to put theory from classes 1-3 and the Simple Body Repairs course into practice on this little car. In this step-by-step guide to the repair, you’ll discover how Michael prepares the damaged area, tacks and welds the patches and neatly finishes off the area. In this class, we move from the bench to the ramp to give you a real world example of what you’ve learned so far.
From duty cycle to torches, wire reel capacity to gas canister compatibility, Michael Coman talks you through the various considerations you need to bear in mind when choosing the right welder for your needs.
There are a number of common errors that people often make when welding their classic car. Michael Coman shares his troubleshooting tips to help you get to the bottom of the problem. In this class, Michael talks you through: - Selecting the right gas - Preparing the material to be welded - Setting up your MIG welder correctly, including: - Wire speed - Gas flow - Power settings Use this class to identify where you’re going wrong and refine your welds to look as good as Michael’s.
