Boy Scout Welding Merit Badge


BSA Welding Merit Badge Class

It’s Back!!!!  MMW will be offering the BSA Welding Merit Badge class starting Oct 2018.  This class is not difficult, but will require some homework beforehand to make the most of your time.  We’ll teach you (or your Scout) the basics of welding safety, welding technique, and then we’ll weld.  We’ll also cover jobs out there in the welding and metalworking industries and, if you’ve done your homework, you’ll be done with the requirements in one day.

This class will be taught by Matt Jones, who besides founding Molten Metal Works, is also an Eagle Scout (4/1995).
