We are pleased to announce an advanced braze welding seminar designed
to address the national need for skilled craftsmen in repairing cast
iron sections used in heavy industrial machinery and in historic metal
structures. The seminar will be offered Saturday, November 17, 2012, at
This one-day intensive braze welding seminar is taught by Kevin Whitford, assisted by Roger Morrison. It is the only seminar that provides participants with the unique opportunity to receive braze welding instruction from a craftsman with over thirty year's experience in this specialized field. Kevin Whitford was featured in the October 2011 Craftsman's Newsletter. Retired from a career in industry, he currently teaches welding for the Eaton Intermediate School District (EISD) high school program at Lansing Community College. Roger Morrison is an experienced welding instructor whose background includes training a wide range of professionals in techniques for the restoration of historic metals. Participants must be skilled in the operation of the oxygen fuel process.
This rare hands-on experience in the repair and rehabilitation of heavy machine components and historic cast iron structures provides the knowledge and skills to avoid costly replacements of cast iron sections by using careful application of advance brazing technology. Instruction will be guided by American Welding Society specification for brazing and braze welding, and the Secretary of the Interiorâ€™s Standards for Rehabilitation.
