Men’s Shed Metal Shop Newcastle

At the Men’s Shed metal shop we have a few different things happening, we are building wheel barrow wheels for when our blokes in the wood shed need them. One of our blokes decided to build a wind mill out of aluminium the oter day and it goes like a rocket in the high winds today. Our resident blacksmith is working on making the wheels in the Men’s Shed metal shop and other men are busy building wind chimes.

Some times we fix toys and doing all the activities, help us with any mens health issues. We are supportive of each other and mentor those that are less skilled. Our trades men for the Men’s Shed metal shop are an electrician (Adrian) who is very skilled, a boiler maker (Dave Corbett) who has done lots of welding projects for our Men’s Shed. Your truly, I am a qualified fitter and turner. These are just some of our tradesmen who are in the Men’s Shed metal shop, we heaps more tradesmen in our woodwork shed.
