He was very willing to clear space to get the job done but he said he would deliver on a date and he didn't get there till the next day which caused a bit of heartburn because he did not communicate with me. However; I would call him again for welding needs.

Don was great. I contacted him and he got back to me right away. He was able to get to us the next day and was right on time! The work was done quickly and looks great. If I ever need welding work done again I wouldn’t hesitate to call Don again!

I needed a piece created from a sketch that required plasma cutting, welding and fabrication. Neal was great to work with and kept me in the loop as it came together which was great since the drawing I provided wasn't extremely detailed. I'd use him again and have already told a couple of friends about Dirty Hands Fabrication.

Custom Stainless exhaust for my Harley. I butchered the odd shaped pieces BADLY with a cutting wheel. There were large gaps, holes, and they didn't align correctly. Jrod welded everything together like it was a factory piece!!! His experience, skill level, and demeanor is truly impressive. Highly recommended. I wish I could post pictures.

This was an amazing job! I ran construction crews while in college and afterwards did all my own home projects. On the rare occasions that I did hired someone I was disappointing in the quantity of work. Since custom welding a metal railing was out of my wheelhouse I decided to once again hire someone. From the bids I received I chose Ty from Centerline on both price and on his positive customer service attitude. His work went beyond my expectations. The material was a much heavier gauge than anything else I looked at, and the craftsman ship, right down to the finish and installation was in the category of artist. If you are thinking of any railing / metal work, this is your guy.

Workmanship on the piece I purchased from Moonblood Custom Fabrication was astounding. Though I had a rather unconventional request for my welding piece, I'm happy Wade Moon was able to fit in some creativity into his work. I'm very satisfied and my welded piece of art is always a conversation starter.

We asked Mark to weld an antique kindling box that, being over 100 years old, was showing signs of age. This was a real challenge due to the unique materials that were thin gauge and easily damaged. Mark stuck with it though and found solutions to complete the job without damaging our valuable, one-of-a-kind object.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How many types of welding are there?

Welding is a method of fusing together two or more pieces of metal using electricity or flame. Welding is used to construct buildings, make metal sculptures, build and repair cars, make gates and furniture, and for many other practical and aesthetic uses. There are multiple types of welding. Here is an overview of the most popular methods:

  • Stick welding: Formally known as shielded metal arc welding, stick welding uses extreme heat applied at the seam of two separate metals to melt them together. A third (intermediary) metal may also be incorporated for added strength. As the metals cool, they are bonded together.
  • Metal inert gas (MIG) welding: Formally known as gas metal arc welding, MIG welding uses a tool to feed metal wire into the weld puddle while an electrical arc melts the wire, which will fuse to the base metal upon cooling.
  • Tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding: Formally referred to gas tungsten arc welding, TIG welding is a similar process MIG welding, but instead of using a tool that continuously feeds metal wire into the weld puddle, the welder must hold and manually feed the stick.
  • Gas welding: A mix of flammable gas and oxygen is used to heat metal to the melting point.
  • Forge welding: Forging metal is an ancient art that involves heating two pieces of metal until they are molten, then hammering them together.

How long is welding training?

Because there are different paths to learning to weld, there’s no single timeline for welding training. Some people attend school part-time while working their current job, while others can focus full-time on their welding training courses. People interested in learning how to weld as a hobby can also take classes from professional welders, such as at KCMA & Services in Waterloo, Indiana.

Expect to take at least two years to go from welding newbie to American Welding Society Certified Welder. A junior college Certificate of Completion welding course is two semesters full-time, or 10 units of coursework. With this certificate, students are qualified for an apprenticeship or internship, rather than a full-time entry-level job. Welding apprenticeships range from 6,000 to 8,000 hours long, equalling three to four years at 2,000 hours per year. Some junior colleges, such as Cerritos College in the Los Angeles area, offer more in-depth welding programs that lead to different welding certifications, such as arc welding and tungsten gas arc welding. These take three to four semesters to complete, so you could be qualified for an entry-level job in about two years of full-time study. Alternatively, you can prepare for employment more quickly through an intensive vocational program at a trade school. For instance, Ohio’s Lincoln Electric Company offers a comprehensive program that prepares people for a welding career in just 20 weeks and 600 hours of hands-on instruction.

Where can I take welding classes?

Your options for welding classes depend on where you live and whether you’re willing to travel. Many skilled professionals offer private or group welding classes across the U.S. Some high schools offer classes for teens, but many people learn from a private trainer or in a junior college or vocational school. Students learn basic welding, machining and fabrication processes, including using gas and arc welding equipment, and qualify for an apprenticeship or internship. Other colleges as well as vocational schools have two-year associate’s degree programs that prepare you to take the welding certification exam and seek full-time employment.

How much is welding training?

The cost of welding training depends on where you take your classes and how quickly you want to complete the program. In general, junior college welding classes are the least expensive, but may take longer; trade schools offer intensive classes that lead to certification more quickly, but are more expensive. For example, Cerritos College, a junior college in Los Angeles that offers a welding training course, charges an average of $46 per unit; most of their welding certificate programs require 19 units of coursework, so cost about $875 each to complete. Pro-Weld, an on-site welding school in Idaho, offers three different welding courses. The 36-week welder fabrication and the 24-week gas tungsten arc welding courses each cost an average of $3,300, while pipe welding costs an average of $2,500 for a 24-week session or an average of $4,500 for a 52-week session. The 20-week comprehensive program at the Lincoln Electric Company in Ohio costs an average of $9,500. Many programs require students to purchase approximately $120-$200 worth of personal welding equipment in addition to textbooks or other class material fees.
