Now We Can Get Some Metalwork Going

Garry has done a great job in building our metalwork bench. Now that this very sturdy bench is complete our members have been making good use of this part of the Shed. Behind Garry is 1 of 2 welding curtains that divide the machine section and the small motors section off when men want to use either the MIG Welder or the stick welder. We can now have 3 separate working areas in our metal shop, so no more welding flash.

I Hear Nothing!

Frank, our most reserved and quiet member, always uses hearing protection when working on a machine. Perhaps some of our other members can take his example and use the safety gear provided when working on noisy machines.

A Hive of Activity

Everyone has a task and are concentrating on their jobs. The table in the centre is full of donated wooden toy parts and templates as well as a letter box Alex, our blind member, is finishing and another bird/bat box.
