With the photo fraternity moving on and the old stables demolished
to make way for the new adventure playground, the vacated half of
the Rivershed has been turned into a new garage and work area for
the Men's shed. Below a couple of the chaps utilizing the space.
Not only do we have a woodwork shop, but we also have a small metalwork shop as well.
There are qualified trades people to assist you with the correct, safe usage of the machinery.
They will also assist you with your special project if help is required.
Naturally, we need to be with you initially to make sure that you can handle the equipment
and that you are safe. In that regard, there must be two people in the shed at any time
machinery or welding equipment is being used.
These are some of the machines available: Metal Lathe with a full range of accessories,
Milling machine and vertical drill, Bench drills, Bench grinders & Hand Held Angle Grinders,
MIG, TIG, ARC, & Oxy Acetylene Welders, Plasma Cutter and Air Compressors.
