Want to Learn Welding? Four Types of Welding Explained
When I worked at Make:, one of the most common desires I heard expressed by makers was learning how to weld. It’s a skill many of us would like to have, but it seems unapproachable.
This video on TimWelds explains four common types of welding: MIG, TIG, Stick, and Flux Core. Tim explains how they work and the strengths, weaknesses, and common applications of each.
He also includes link to welding tutorials for each type on his channel should you wish to delve deeper.
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.
