EAA284 hands on welding practice

EAA284 Welding hands on demoMy Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter (EAA284) met at a new shop of one of our members today for our May meeting. We had a chance to both work on projects for our chapters ‘rentable kitchen’ and to learn a bit about welding. We enjoyed a beautiful day in Waynesville, Ohio while discussing the summer flying season (and events) in Dick Elliot’s new outbuilding. He has  equipment that would be the envy of most experimental airplane builders and the skills to go along with them (lacking for yours truly).

The goal of today’s meeting was to replace the wood rolling griddle stands with sturdier one made from welded steel.  Unfortunately I departed early so I’m unsure just how much was accomplished, but would like to than Dick for all the preparation and hospitality. Thanks.
