The brazing hearth we were donated back in 2011 is now mounted on a wheeled base so it can be moved outside to be used safely.

It is a forced air and mains gas brazing hearth that has been converted to bottled gas.

A basic induction to ensure people know what to turn on and off before and after using it is probably a good idea. Also to ensure people know which bits are asbestos.

It's now ready to have a butane bottle fitted so the pipework can be checked for leaks before comissioning.
