Total Metal Resource, Inc. has made some of the hottest custom metal work in New York City and the owner is excited to pass on the knowledge he has gained through 20 years of working with metal. Introduced classes that are designed to fulfill the innate desire to make things by hand, from scratch. Exploring the fun of working with new tools, and to experience the unique satisfaction that has been enjoyed over the years fabricating metal into astounding works of art.
Intro to welding has a lot of potential to be a fun and informative class but about half the class was taken up with prep work (welding jackets, waivers, setup of welding machines, etc.) most of which ought to have been done before we arrived. The instructor just didn't seem prepared. The class ended with a hard sell of the longer 4-hour followup classes.
Great class, very knowledgeable staff , covering all bases. Expect a physically challenging 4 hours of solid work, no games.
Great class and great instructor. Overall great.
Michelle is great!
Fun and very hands-on class that does a great job of teaching you metalworking and MIG welding basics without spending too much time on theory. That being said, the instructors are more than happy to answer metalworking-related questions. If you're someone (like me) who doesn't just want to learn how to do something, but also wants to understand the underlying processes, I recommend watching some YouTube videos and reading though some How-To's before or after the course. All in all highly recommended!
Had a great time. I signed up for the next class. Knife making. Two 4 hour class.
Great class. Michelle's was a great instructor. Real fun and learned the basics, got what I wanted. I'll be going back for TIG class.
The teachers for this class were knowledgable and good. My qualms were: For a four hour class on welding <1 hour was spent welding or speaking of welding techniques (and quite a high price for only one hour of actual welding instruction). Since the class only has three welders the class was split and only 2 people of the 5 were able to complete the project. At the end of the class the owner came over to the students and said, "sign up for the next class because I need more money for hookers & blow".
That as been à great great class. It was so cool !!! Thanks again
I loved this class. I took the 2 day cube welding and finishing. The instructors were great and very friendly. As an artist I am always interested in process and technique. So to be able to build something from start to finish was great. A cube is perfect because it's really sculptural and even with imperfections it looks cool.
