Make with metal

Make it with metal

Welding lets you join metal, transforming inexpensive raw materials into strong, useful items that are better than anything you can buy – because they’re custom-made for you, by you.

Repair & save money

When you master basic welding skills, you can repair instead of replace, saving hundreds of dollars. And a MIG welder is the easiest, most affordable machine you can learn to use.

Creative satisfaction

Watching two pieces of red hot, glowing metal become molten and then join exactly as you planned is exciting, satisfying and creative. Time to spark up the fun.

After 30 minutes of practice, you’ll be making your first successful welds

Yes, you can learn to weld at home!

Welding is for anyone who wants to work with metal.

With the right instruction, you can create welds you’ll be proud of – after about 30 minutes of practice or less. Whether you want to build, repair or just learn a new skill, welding opens up an exciting world of metalworking. This course teaches techniques you can use in your home, garage, farm, workshop or small business – anywhere you need to join pieces of metal in a rock-solid, permanent way.

The equipment for welding – especially user-friendly MIG welding – has never been more accessible to the average do-it-yourselfer. It’s less expensive than ever, easier to use, very reliable and very effective.

What our students are saying

Eric Harrison

It’s been very enjoyable going through this easy-to-follow welding class. I’m very excited to get started on a new adventure in welding. Due to your lessons on equipment, I did my research and found that the Lincoln 210 was a great match for my needs. I'm also excited to tackle the little wood stove project that’s part of the course.

I really enjoyed Steve’s MIG welding course. The pace was just right and the level of detail was good as well. I hope there’ll be similar classes in the future. Maybe something on advanced welding? Overall, very pleased and appreciate your time and quick responses to my questions.

Hello Steve, 

I truly enjoyed being part of your MIG WELDING FOR BEGINNERS course. The information you provide via written and videos material IS very well put together and easy to follow. I truly was a beginner, never having even owned equipment nor additional tools. I will keep my eye out for any additional courses you have on these topics.
