Pledge: Welding Equipment

From London Hackspace Wiki

Quite a few people think it would be handy to join more heavy weight bits of metal than you can manage with a soldering iron or brazing torch.

The items

 * A small MIG welder
 * Personal Protective equipment (At least 1 mask, apron, gloves)
 * Additional stocks of wire & gas for welding with.

The PPE is likely to set us back as much as a small welder initially, but it's entirely reuseable if/when we get a larger welder, and entirely essential. (Setting yourself on fire is not amusing - I speak from experience here)

I think we also need a ceiling-mounted welding curtain to protect other peoples' eyes - these seem to be about £50-60. We'd probably want to curtain off the far corner in the dirty shop. Russ 10:29, 22 July 2010 (UTC)

We also need some additional tools and an angle grinder, but I have this equipment (on loan somewhere else that I'll try and retrieve back in the next week or two t0m

I can supply about £100 worth of accessories and consumables that I have lying around - reels of wire, regulator, disposable gas bottles, clamps, tips etc. - does this mean we have enough pledged or weren't they costed in! --Nigle 16:12, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
