On one of my favorite episodes of Make: Live, Hackett showed Matt Richardson how to arc weld. He’s my go-to resource for all things welding, and he teaches classes on different techniques regularly at The Madagascar Institute in Brooklyn NY.

David Lang cronicles his welding experience in this MAKE post.

There are many types of welding but you might run into arc, torch, MIG, and TIG most often! Here’s some of the first welding I did– practice joints with an oxyacetylene torch.

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Wow, that requirements sheet is really hard! I’ve done quite a bit of welding and kinda know all the stuff, but I wouldn’t be able to pass it — I’ve never done any TIG because I can’t afford the equipment, and gas is too dangerous for my rented workspace. I guess it’s good for schools with fully-equipped welding shops, though…

  2. Those practice welds look great! Bet you had fun… I’ve done TIG, MIG, torch and laser welding. TIG is like having a magic ray gun compared to MIG. As soon as my kids are old enough I’ll be teaching them to weld. 🙂

    Welding holds the world together!
