At long last, we have a welding area! Thanks everybody who’s chipped in to help out with this. It’s drywalled, painted, laid out, and very nearly ready to go.
We still have a couple of things on the to-do list for this area, but once we get the first -3- 4 done, we can start welding.
Get gas bottle for the MIG welder
Review insurance policy to make sure welding is covered
Shave bottom of door and get rid of the tripping hazard for fire exit
Run extension cord from machine shop (make plugs, cut mousehole)
Install ventillation system
Cut down and dispose of the big flat dolly that we’ve all been tripping over for the last 6 months (maybe use parts of it to build welding curtian holders)
Build welding curtian holders
Get proper lights in there
Put fab table onto casters
Build some saw horses at same level as castered fab table
Build a better stand for the metal bandsaw, putting its bed level with fab table and saw horses
Build metal storage rack on South wall
…And I’ll add more as they come up.
If anybody is interested in learning how to weld, let me know. I’ll be offering a more formal course a bit later on, but for now I’d like to gauge interest, and I can give lessons here and there on the weekends.
