Function + Creativity = Taco Stand

Learn mad introductory fabrication skills while building your own taco (complete with all the fixin’s and a display stand) during this two-day welding/ manufacturing camp!

Taco builders will use (at least) the following tools:

  • GMAW (Gas Metal Arc Welding, aka MIG welding, aka wire welding)
  • PAC (Plasma Arc Cutting, aka light saber)
  • Oxy-acetylene torch with rosebud (for heating/bending)
  • Oxy-acetylene torch welding tip and brazing rod
  • 14″ chop saw
  • 4.5″ variable speed angle grinder
  • other tools as needed


  • ALL classes begin with safety! Participants will be taught to use all tools. Demonstrations and practice time are provided.
  • We normally provide a small group setting of usually no more than 10 people so that everyone can get the individual instruction and attention they need.
  • We provide all safety gear including safety glasses, welding jackets, gloves and welding helmets.
    • FYI: if you already have your own safety glasses that fit you perfectly, you are welcome to bring them. Otherwise, we provide standard ANSI-approved safety glasses that are yours to take home.
  • This class is co-ed.
  • Kids from ages 12-17  are welcome to register.
  • WHAT TO WEAR: jeans, cotton t-shirt and closed-toe shoes (leather shoes or boots preferred; tennis shoes are OK; no sandals); please ensure ankles and feet are completely covered. T-shirts or tank tops are fine as you will be wearing a welding jacket on top.
  • Water, tea and light refreshments will be provided both days. Naturally, a delicious taco dinner will be provided on DAY 2 to celebrate our accomplishments.
