    Hello all!

    Its here! it’s here! the welding class is here and coming up fast!

    So, At this moment there is an Event-Brite in place for reserving your spot in the welding weekend, specifically August 9th-11th 2013! See the main page of the hive to learn more.

    I’ll be teaching groups of 6, in 2 hour sessions this weekend so don’t dally and reserve your seat now.

    A simple breakdown of the class is as follows;
    ~30-45 min of theory and safety
    10mins of demonstration (both the welder and band-saw)
    1hr – 1hr 15min of hands on training (rotating people in on the only machine)

    Dress code:
    -Wear something you wouldn’t mind too much if damaged by hot embers
    -closed toe shoes!
    -Long selves are a must, (don’t want to get sunburns by the arc)

    What to expect:
    - I’ll teach you how to weld safely at the hive by yourself
    - I will teach you how to use the band-saw to cut metal
    - you will get to make practice welds on scrap metal that you cut on the band saw
    + if you have something in particular you would like to weld, we may be able to fit it in, depending on time.
    This may be a simple repair on something, like a lawn mower or bicycle frame, scratch-built projects are
    unlikely to fit within the time constraint… just ask
    - I will coach each student while they weld, to lower the learning curve
    - With limited masks, some will cut scrap for themselves to weld on, while others are practicing on the welder, rotating every 10-12min

    What to bring:
    - A LONG SLEEVE SHIRT! lol (just gotta reiterate in case no one reads the dress code ^_^ )
    - Admission fee as outlined on the main post

    Your fearless leader,
    Ryan 2.0
