Dan did a great job for me on shafting, bearing housings, and parts modifications, from supplied drawings, in aluminum & alloy steel. He asks the right questions & was as concerned with the finished product as I was. High quality work at a fair price. I'll be back.

I had some stainless steel exhaust parts I needed welded together and he was able to do it very well. It came out perfectly, and working with him was very easy. He took the time to make sure everything I needed was done right, and kept me in the loop about what he was doing the entire time. Very professional work, would absolutely work with him again. Highly recommended! Thanks Neiko!

Ken came out the same day when other welders could not all the way from Coatesville to Philly. He took on a somewhat difficult job of welding a foot pedal on a Bobcat skid steer and a new floor panel of a rusted out piece. he was done quickly and we were back to using out skid steer the same day.

First let me say I called a few Welders and they all gave me outrageous fees. A Welder even quoted $300.00 dollars just to make a house call and look at the project not counting parts and labor. So that led me to Finding an honest and gifted Welder like Brennar Williams. He gave me a fair and reasonable quote $150.00 just to come and look at my project and work on it. Once he looked at what needed to be done he took my blue prints and went right to work on it. The next day my custom part was finished. What was it you wonder? It was a Welded holding bracket for my power spreader to mount in front of my Ferris Mower. The manufacturer sold me an Item not suitable for my mower. The blue prints were flawed and misleading and Brennar Willims was able to solve this problem by making the bracket. I Highly recommend him for his true professionalism and humble character.

I had a crazy weird job which William and his son agreed to tackle. When we hit an obstacle they problem-solved it and got the work done. William was easy to communicate with, responsive, and arrived exactly at the time we arranged. I would definitely hire him again.

This is a great guy. He shows up when he says he will and he did a fine job welding a vintage travel trailer frame. Some of the repairs took some imagination and fabrication and Justin had no trouble with any of this. I highly recommend this welder.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
