So you are looking for a Welding Instructional Manual or course?

Well what would you say if we told you that we have found one that is for anyone that wants to hobby weld at their own pace without having to learn the basics at an expensive welding school or program. It is also a good get back to basics guide for any professional looking to brush up on their skills.

The course teaches everything a beginner needs from how to buy some low cost equipment to laying down their first bead. We also like that you can preview several videos before making the decision to buy. (see video below).

Start Welding in Under 90 Minutes With This Welding Instructional Manual

After reviewing many of the available welding instructional manuals we quickly came to the conclusion that:

  1. there are many welding instruction manuals available
  2. most are complicated making is hard to get you up and running quickly
  3. the video needs to be part of the course so that you can see and hear each step

That was until we found Garrett Strong and the course he put together called “90 Minute Mig Mastery.”

What The Course Is About

It is just what the Doctor ordered for a beginner or for an experienced welder looking to sharpen his or her skills.

It provides a complete A to A blueprint that will get you welding in under 1 hour.

We also like that you can watch a few videos for free so you can try it before you buy it. One of the preview videos explains step of by step how to reach the welding in one hour milestone.

It is the easiest welding method for beginners that are looking to fabricate just about anything. Another plus is that the course focuses on Mig welding, a type of welding that uses a  regular power outlet and relatively inexpensive equipment, so you can start in your own garage.

Click the learn more link on the upper right corner of the video to view more videos and learn a bit more about the course. I personally like that the course focuses on a few useful starter project such as making your own barbecue pit, auto work, ornaments or how to build a motorcycle.

Once you learn how to make some solid welds you can apply the skills to just about anything.
