Hey anybody who’s interested in metalworking and welding!
I’m putting together a work party this Sunday, and you’re invited. It’s going to be a lot of cutting and welding, so wear natural fibres.
Demolish sketchy mezzanine
install fireguard drywall
mud and tape drywall
paint walls and ceiling
lay out metal shop
Get gas bottle for the MIG welder
Review insurance policy to make sure welding is covered
SATURDAY JULY 13
Run extension cord from machine shop (make plugs, cut mousehole)
SUNDAY JULY 14
Shave bottom of door and get rid of the tripping hazard for fire exit
Install ventilation 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
Build some saw horses at same level as 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
Build a good scrap metal box
FUTURE, WAITING ON PARTS/PERMITS

If you don’t know how to weld yet, that’s no problem, I can set the machine up and give you a quick lesson. We’re not exactly welding pressure vessels here.
Hope to see a few people out here!
