Want to build it yourself? When we first got our Jeep we did too! There’s nothing quite like the satisfaction of building your own stuff. If you want to learn how the pros do it now is your chance. The Chaos Fab Shop staff will show you how to build your parts properly the first time so you can show it off and bash it on the trail. Here’s what’s covered.

Equipment Selection and Prep
Material Selection and Prep
Engineering and Design
Actual welding

No previous experience required for this class. You will need an auto dimming welding helmet and gloves.

If you need to purchase welding gear, we recommend Miller. It’s best to deal locally, so that if there’s ever a problem you have someone willing to fix it. We selected PraxAir as our Miller dealer of choice.  Miller will give them special pricing to give to you on our behalf.  If you need anything call JR (info below) and Tell him you want the Chaos Fab Shop Student pricing.  He can have anything you need delivered to the closest PraxAir to you.  Now you all get great pricing, great service, nationwide coverage, and someone to stand behind it all.  And no, we don’t make a penny on this.  Now, lets go make something cool!

Discounted welding equipment contact:  J.R.     PraxAir Mid-Atlantic, 150 Fort Collier Rd, Winchester, VA 22603.   (540) 535-0119

Time 9-6 with a 1 hour break for lunch. You may bring your lunch, drive out to lunch or we can order a pizza.

We keep our class sizes small, so space is limited. Reserve Your Spot!

Price for this class is $250 per person. This will be an open forum class at the Chaos Shop.

Admission will need to be paid 10 days prior to start of class, so we can order materials.

Refunds:  We work hard to make these classes available, we ask that you let us know at least a week ahead of class day if you need to cancel, a full refund will be issued in this case. If you cancel within  7 days before class you will be issued a store credit at Chaos Fab Shop good for labor.  Should we need to postpone the class due to inclement weather or another emergency, a make up class  will be scheduled, all notifications will be emailed to the email we have on file for you (in most cases it’s the email related to your Paypal account).  If the class or make up class is missed tickets will not be refunded but can be used toward labor cost on a repair order at Chaos Fab Shop.

This is the first class of the 3 class series and will give you a great foundation to start with. In the following classes we will teach more advanced techniques and Tig.
