Welding Week 6: So many tools!

Welding (Spring 2017)Lindsay JonesComment

This week at After School Welding, we did a lot more than weld!

When the going gets tough, the tough get a hacksaw. Amanda teaches Ayush how to start a cut on using a hacksaw. His pieces was too small to use the plug-in tool to cut it, so these finishing details had to be done by hand.

Eli had designs planned out to engrave into his project today. He spent most of the day engraving and exploring decorative welding.

Jesse files off the metal "sprinkles" on his eagle to make the surface more smooth.

Teia's finished project: a "classroom" playspace for her toys at home. The squares in the center are cubbies for the "students" to put their backpacks in.

The bandsaw was giving everyone problems this week. Daniel and Karen work to put the blade back on.

Daniel welded today!

Jesse used the drill press to make some big holes in his pieces -- next week, these will be welded!

Ayush spent the whole session making a square piece of metal round. At the end of the day, he was so tired and so proud of this work!
