    Introduction to Welding


    No more road-trips. This welding class is in the new workshop. Come discover the joy of welding.

    * Persons who donated money during our campaign to get the space will be allowed to attend at no cost, but please coordinate with me. We need to generate enough money to keep the space open so only a few at a time.

    ** If you happen to be feeling extra generous please donate extra so that I can return the borrowed CO2 bottle and buy additional steel for practice and future classes.


    Required: You must be wearing appropriate clothing to attend.

    Clothing includes cotton long sleeve shirt, jeans or leathers and closed toed shoes. Stay away from nylon clothing or shoes. Don't wear clothing you care about.


    We will provide the rest of the safety equipment but we only have enough for one person to wear it at a time. If you want to bring your own helmet that would be very handy for you.


    We will:


    Discuss safety, equipment and materials. We will be working with steel only in this session.

    Lab: Setup and weld using a MIG welder. We will be doing some basic joining of metal. If you want to bring something small you can but depending on size, material and time we may not allow you the opportunity; feel free to reach out to me before attending.


    You should be able to walk away with a basic understanding of how to weld. If we feel you got the basics down enough to be safe and use the machine safely you will be allowed to use the welder.

    SnoCo Makerspace will be hosting a life sciences workshop to allow users to learn the ins and outs of one of biology's basic instruments - the microscope. In this workshop you will learn the basics of light microscopy: how light sources are used and how optical elements create images, both real and virtual; the physics of light and physiology of the eye; how lenses work and their types, and how to prepare your own slides using basic stains.

    Stereo (dissecting) microscopes use reflected light to view larger 3 dimensional objects, while traditional compound microscopes use transmitted light to view thin, smaller samples. Learn how the the four functional parts of a traditional compound microscope (light source, condenser, objective lens and ocular lens) contribute to the quality of the image, and how to setup up a microscope to optimize viewing (Köhler illumination).

    We will prepare slides and see how each stain highlights specific aspects of a cell. The staining methods included are hematoxylin & eosin (H&E) for tissue & cells, Gram stain for bacteria, methylene blue and iodine for onion cells and Wright's stain for blood smears. If you have anything you would like to view please bring it along. Although mIcroscopes will be provided you are welcome to bring your own.
