Light engineering

The wood workshop and Fabrication, our textile workshop are the two key elements of the Wanaka Community Workshop. That said the MenShed team who normally spend their time in the wood workshop are keen to establish a capacity to undertake light engineering.

A table suitable for working with metal has been built. This week the team held their initial training in welding.

We still have a way to go – properly siting the work table and enabling more people to handle the equipment safely. Extending our ability to work with metal will enable a greater range of projects to be undertaken.
