Custom Fabrication: Taking on commissions on a case-by-case basis.  Most likely we will not work on site, so repairs you can bring in, furniture, and in-house projects only.  Email with your project needs.

Tool Rental: Rent a MIG Welding Kit for completing your welding projects at home. MIG welder, grinder, helmet, and chipping hammer for 4 days for $120. No shielding gas though so either buy/rent a tank or use flux core.  Read more here:

Current Available Classes:

We are offering Intro MIG on Saturdays and Sundays, 9am-1pm.

There will be a limit of 4 people per class, no lunch break to avoid safety hazards, (but feel free to bring a snack). The class will be held outside to adhere to safety guidelines. You will have plenty of space between instructor and other students to maintain six feet distance at all times. The shop will be taking extra safety precautions to sanitize work stations, tools and supplies between classes to give you the safest possible environment.

We will also be offering Intro TIG on Fridays, 9am-3pm.

This class will be inside the shop, and we will be keeping these classes to a maximum of five people to provide enough safe space between stations. We will be taking all the safety precautions to ensure sanitized shop tools and work stations.

Support MMW!

We hope you all are staying safe and doing well in these difficult times. We truly value and appreciate the community we have harnessed over the past nine (almost ten) years and miss seeing your beautiful faces. We are hopeful that things will turn around soon and we will be able to fully open in the safest way possible.

As you can imagine, our business has been hit hard by COVID-19 and the months-long mandatory closures in Los Angeles. At this point, we are treading water until there is a vaccine and we go back to our regular programming of teaching classes and hosting an open shop for all of you to enjoy!

If you have the means to support our small business, it is greatly appreciated. You can support by making a donation, buying a gift card, purchasing a kit or custom piece from the shop or signing up for a class (as offered above). We are all in this together!
