    Re: Teaching a 15 year old how to weld.

    Here something that you can do for is to give a small project That is in his skill level. Have him do the project the way he thinks it should be done. And also set a time limit for it to be done in. Then step back and let him do it till it's completed. Give a rough idea, no plans , have him make the plans and also he needs to figure out what he needs for materials he will need. Then have him to price out and come up with a total cost of materials. With that he can see where the math skills are used and what you have shown(taught) him.,

    The piece running vertical at 45* up is 2 1/2"x3/8" angle iron. Picture #3 zoom in and you can see it.

    Newest projects by the youngster. I showed him how to keep things aligned and how to lay some stuff out, he did all the welding and we split the prep work.
    A boot rack out of horseshoes, 2 toilet paper holders out of a horseshoe and a rail split, and a little puppy dog just for fun. His welds are getting prettier.
