Welder Workshop



In collaboration with Mike Furick of DOG Fabrication and Furick Welding Cups, PIT’s 2-day welding workshops are perfect for the self-designated “beginner” welder or hobbyist.  Held at PIT’s welding shop, participants will enjoy two days of shop and classroom time.  Each program is designed for those who wish to learn the techniques and intricacies of the specific welding process (MIG, TIG, Stick) that each workshop focuses on in various different applications. Participants will have significant hands-on time with top-notch Miller Manufacturing welding equipment and pre-cut practice materials. Instruction from PIT’s Pit Weld U instructors will ensure that those taking part in the workshop will get the most out of their time.  Participants can expect to leave with the confidence and ability to produce quality welds in their garage or shop.
