Nevada High School ag mechanics students learn welding
Twenty-two Nevada High School ag mechanics students have been learning basic welding with Miller MIG wire welders. All of the students have recently purchased protective welding coats, along with auto-darkening helmets. With the auto-darkening helmets, the helmet can stay down with clear view through the window, once the arc flashes, the lens darkens for eye protection.
The helmets also have a “grind” setting so helmets can stay down while grinding, but still offer a clear view of the work area. Most of the helmets and coats were purchased with federal Perkins CTE funds. Nevada FFA also contributed $720 for additional helmets.
