Now we all know that you can’t learn how to weld strictly from watching videos. Right? Or can you?
I personally think the best way to learn to weld is by enrolling in a welding school. But thinking back to when I was in welding school, I wish these welding videos and DVDs were available for me to rent back then. That probably would have shot me to the top of the class. When all the other guys were drinking beer and smoking weed on the weekends, I would have been watching and learning all about "how to weld aluminum", "how to Tig weld", and "how to gas weld". I would recommend for anyone in welding school to buy some welding dvds from Northern Tool to supplement the instruction you get from your welding instructor.
In a perfect world, your instructor would be completely competent and a wealth of knowledge. But since the requirements to become a welding instructor are pretty weak, sometimes the welding instructor is not "all that".
I think most welding instructors at local colleges are dedicated professionals..but some are not...Some barely meet the minimum requirements and spend their time surfing the net when they should be actively teaching in the welding booths.
If you were unlucky enough to get a welding instructor that is just not good... That’s when you could really benefit from some added knowledge from welding videos and DVDs.... Like steve bleile's gas welding, arc welding, flux core arc welding, and mig welding videos that you can buy from Northern Tool.
For about 25 bones each, these videos are crystal clear and informative...if you dont believe me, just read some of the reviews at the norther tool site.
Don’t be afraid to invest in yourself. You would not hesitate to rent a blockbuster movie or video game for 6 bucks,
