Until very recently, like many people in DIT, I had never even seen a welding laboratory. To listen to me now, you’d swear I was raised with a welding torch in my hand. That’s not the case, but when I moved jobs in September 2015, I discovered that DIT runs evening courses in welding, so I decided to sign up. Way back, when I was in college, the greatest threat to life-and-limb was either an alcoholinduced idiot injury, or at worst, the risk of burning myself with a soldering Iron. They get pretty hot, sometimes as hot as 215°C. That could give you a nasty burn.
