Beginnings of a welding area at CCHS

We’re setting up a welding area at CCHS – recent visitors will have noticed the strange 250mm semi rigid ducting running across the ceiling.

Last night we added a welding table, located next to the vending machine. Its not as heavy as it looks, and can be pulled forward to enable easier welding access.

We’ll be soon putting up a frame that’ll make dropping down the welding curtains nice and easy, and hooking up the extractor fan.   Longer term, we hope to upgrade the welding table top to something with 16mm holes on 50mm pitch, for use with special quick setup welding clamp set.

The welding table also provides a home for the vac former, which is quite light and can be moved to an adjacent bench (the workbenches in that area are all the same height, at the moment…)
