Hey welders and aspiring welders!
We still have a few things to build in the welding shop.
Grinder stands (2x)
Belt sander stand
Stand and counter-weights for box and pan brake
Tool rack for intermittently-used tools
Tool board for hand tools
Plasma cutter table
Wheels for forge and anvil
Over the next two weeks I will be putting drawings together so that we can plan things out, acquire materials, and generally make efficient use of our time.
Work days will be November 9-10, 16-17, any time between 10 am and 6 PM.
I will not be teaching beginner welders on those days, because we need to prioritize getting this done. If you are a non-welder but would like to learn, please feel free to come down and help out; it will give you a chance to get familiar with overall fabrication, and if you help out you’ll get priority when I start running lessons.
Just as a straw poll, let me know if you’re interested/planning to come down to this.
If you don’t have time to throw at this but you still want to pitch in, I welcome you to throw some money at the problem; we will need to buy some more steel etc. I have to do some inventory, but we’ll be looking at a couple hundred bucks materials cost for these builds.
If you would like to donate materials, we are looking for:
Steel car wheels (2x)
Cement (1 bag)
heavy gauge 4" pipe, about 3 feet long (2x)
old free-weights, dumbells, etc.
8" stove pipe (straights and elbows)
Wheels that could take the weight of the anvil
casters that could take the weight of the forge (plus some additional cement and fire bricks)
