We want to run a welding shop at TAMI. Amitai (052-2463101.) volunteered his time and skill set for the job.


List of class participants is seized by Google at https://goo.gl/BO5jCC

Pictures and likes are monetized by Facebook at TAMI citizens welding xlas

Update about projects, materials and upcoming meeting will be through this page, Facebook group and TAMI mailing list.


It was suggested that we collect 150NIS from each participant to cover the bill of materials. As of Sep 20, 2015 we've collected 2149 NIS from 14 welding students.

  1. electrodes - (how much?)
  2. metal - (how much? what type? where to buy it? who will buy it? who will bring it to the space?)

Dates to be decided.

One request
as long as you are welding - make something useful
e.g. :  heavy duty shelves for holding stock. We already did some in the welding room:
Strong profiles from floor bolted into (concrete) ceiling
Triangle arms welded onto those.
Now nothing depends on the strength (weakness) of cinder blocks.
More profiles (3) are needed in welding room, and in machine room (6)

As for things needed for the space and the welding shop, please take into considirarion that whatever you build, it has to be strong,safe and on some cases moveable.
I suggest restocking on abresive wheels,wirebrush cup for the grinder, and welding 


Vyacheslav Marinovski:

Someone knows if we have some sort of "VENTA" ventilator that we could attach to an air conditioner
sleeve and it could suck the welding fumes out? 
Amitai Aharon Franklin:
<pre>I will bring a big "venta" that we will install in the upper floor.

Amitai Aharon Franklin:

 there is a place not far from t.a.m.i. (address?)
we will need a car with a "gagoon: that will be able to curry the metrical. (who has such car?)


If you order enough material,they will transport it to the space probably for free or next to nothing.
