This week at Menz Shed.......8 October

We still need a cell phone that uses a sims card to be donated
to the Wellington MenzShed so that we can have contact with
people who want information and to leave messages. The one
that was donated does not hold a charge. So please, do what
you can.......

There were a number of new faces at the Wellington MenzShed
this week, and the new members who came last week returned
to assist in the near completion of our second work bench.

This work bench is taller than the first one and
custom built to accommodate the taller members of our group.

(Perhaps there will be enough non-height challenged members to
form a basketball team, with games having 5 minute halves in
consideration of our knees and lungs).

We have now begun to lay out the large room to situate the
major tool and work areas for our members.

At the meeting to be held on Oct. 15th, we will determine what
day is most suitable for a general working bee for near final layout,
sorting of tools, and finishing touches, etc.

Positive comments were made about the inadvertent closing remarks
last week, so we repeat it again for those who missed it the first
time round.

As Porky Pig would say, "Th...th...tha...that's all f..f..f..folks"!

This week at the Shed - 1 October

Thanks to Norman here are the latest notes from This week at the shed...

A continued general clean up took place sorting the
smaller hand tools done by two new members of the shed;
Kibreab Weledoychannes, and Ermias Misgina.

Bill Wallace has done a wonderful job creating two new steps
leading into the kitchen area by replacing the one very tall step.
He had to remove concrete and build a form to do this.

Richard Maniapoto was the man responsible for the sawing and
preparation of the wood for the second work bench. His skill
as a contractor was put to good use.

Nigel Clough was instrumental in repairing and testing an amplifier
and DVD player successfully. We were all surprised when power
was supplied and nothing blew up.

Security and storage was enhanced when some of the men managed to open up
the metal door to an outside stall. The gap in the wooden fence
was also repaired.

As Porky Pig would say, "Tha, Tha, tha, That's All F, F, Folks"
