Event Overview

Ever wanted to blast through metal with super-heated air? Here's your chance! Plasma cutting can be used for creating intricate shapes in metal resulting in beautiful art work, auto body work and precise structural cuts. It can be done with a hand-held torch (which we will be using in this class) or with a computer numerically controlled (CNC) table. As one student put it: it's like a knife through hot butter!

In the first part of this class you will learn the physics behind the process of plasma cutting. Then we will discuss machine setup, electrical requirements and safety. Next, there will be a demonstration of the process in action including tips on using templates. Finally, we will each make our very own plasma cut project!

Whether you are an aspiring artist, handyman or just curious about how plasma cutting works, this class will get you off and running!

Directions to studio: Upon arrival to class, park in front of the main building (4 Axis Machining), walk around the building to the left, and unit K10 is located in the building directly behind.

Minimum age

All ages welcome

Prerequisites

Please wear long pants and sleeves (preferably no synthetic material) that you don't mind getting dirty.

    We have a 16 year old high school Sophomore. He is a hands on learner and at the same time that I heard about these classes, he showed interest in metal working, welding, etc. He is not a great candidate for college due to his focusing issues. He has difficulty following through on the boring CORE school subjects and homework, they just do not hold his attention. This class was really great, Nick is an interesting teaching and keeps your attention even when explaining the equipment and safety instructions. Then, the hands on was so much fun!! We are all hooked and my son has found his career calling!

    This is an EXCELLENT class and worth EVERY penny!
    Nick is a great laid-back teacher. He simplified everything for us and in just 2 hours, we all walked away with
    a good understanding of plasma welding. The beginner projects that came out of this class were amazing!
    I highly recommend this class!

    We went to Nick's plasma cutting class with another couple. It was a fun experience and we enjoyed trying something new. Nick was knowledgable and patient. We are getting a kick out the projects we brought home.

    Class was awesome! Plasma cutting is way cool ... Got to do straight cuts, "design cuts" and buff it out. Best of all we got to take our project home. Nick is a great instructor!

    Absolutely worth taking! My group and I enjoyed learning everything from the physics of Plasma/Plasma Cutting to the actual cutting! We all thought Nick was very thorough - especially with the safety aspects and kept things light and moving forward. We especially loved that we each created a "masterpiece" to take with us!!

    Fun class, clear instructions, attentive host and you take home your own project! Bring a simple design with you that you'd like to cut out of metal to take home.

    What a fun class! Great teacher, Nick really knows what he is doing and does a great job of making you feel capable. I wasn't sure what I was going to do, but I left with my own custom created yard art. Mission accomplished!!! I saw someone make a mermaid, another do a mountain scene within a self contained frame. It was awesome, I can't recommend it enough.
