Join Our Shed For Men

Why join our shed, men from all walks of life are joining mens sheds all over the country. Socialising with other blokes is what the new trend is recommending. You can go down to your local men’s shed and have a cuppa and a chat. Men retiring from the work force tend to lose all their mates from work and need to go down to one of the local sheds and join in on the activities of a local men’s shed.

What To Check Before Turning The Grinder On

Band Saw Training – Have You Qualified

Band saw training will commence in our Men’s Shed on Tuesday 19th June 2012. Have you qualified in the use of the band saw. Remember we are starting a register for those people who are qualified on different equipment. It is good work practice to get skilled mentoring support if you intend to use any of our power equipment, especially on the band saw. Gordon Steele will be running an introduction into the use of our band saw and if you are not a qualified tradesman then you will need to get the basics on how to use the band saw.
