Where do you meet?

Have a look at the contact page.

What experience do I need?

Having basic (hand / power) tool skills is helpful but not vital. Common sense and a sense of safety are requisite for working with white hot steel!

Can anyone join?

You need to be an adult (18 years or older) for insurance reasons. Male and female applicants of all ages are welcome. All new members are subject to a probation period. A group of experienced members & the Committee will assess candidates to ensure they are working safely and are suitable for permanent membership.

What do I wear?

Natural fibre clothing (non-synthetic) is a must. Safety glasses are mandatory. Hearing protection is recommended. Sturdy boots are also required. Metal will melt through sneakers in a flash!
