Wicks Aircraft Supply will offer a hands-on TIG welding workshop Feb. 13 and 14, featuring “Mister TIG,” aka Wyatt Swaim.
During the 16 hours, everyone will learn the basics of welding 4130 Chromoly tubing, mild steel and aluminum for creating fuel tanks. The course will also explore basic metallurgy. The workshop is designed to provide instruction for nine to 12 people. The cost is $425 per person, or $399 for EAA and SCCA members. Coffee, donuts and lunch will be provided.
“Anyone contemplating an aircraft that involves a steel tube fuselage or aluminum fuel tanks will find this program invaluable,” said Scott Wick, president of Wicks Aircraft Supply. “They should leave here after two days with the confidence to go home and complete any welding required for their aircraft project.”
