CTH Member Cost $59 + $20 materials fee.

Non-Member Cost $79 + $20 materials fee.

 

We will start with a bit of basic theory and safety.  It can be intimidating to get started welding because of the potential dangers involved and the complexity of the equipment.

Starting with torch welding has a lot of advantages, what you learn by torch welding is applicable to all other forms of welding.

We will also talk about welding on a budget, and what types of welding are best for you.

This two day class will cover:

• Safety

• Oxyfuel welding

• Oxyfuel cutting

• Brazing

Additional classes will build upon what you have learned and will include;

• MIG welding (GMAW)

• TIG welding (GTAW)

• Plasma Cutting

 

 

CTH Member Cost $59 + $20 materials fee.

The $20 Materials fee will be collected now at meetup RSVP,

and the class fee will be taken at time of class.

Fixing Bose Quiet Comfort 15 Headphone Ear Cushions

Bose QC15 HeadphonesI bought the Bose Quiet Comfort QC15 headphones about 5 or 6 years ago. They are great. However, one of the ear pads started coming apart, and no sooner did that one finish unraveling, the other side started. The headphones were still usable but much less comfortable and didn’t stay in place on my head. eBay has ‘replacements’ but the comments regarding the fit were not flattering. I figured it would be worth trying to fix them on my own, because, well, I’d have to order some crappy replacements anyways so I might as well really ruin the originals first.

Hey, Is This Thing On? A Visual Device-Status Indicator Story

DIY humidifier on active indicator LED assembled frontIt’s winter and the air in my house is dry, humidity at about 30%. That’s too low to be comfortable. I’ve lived in my new place for less than one year so the low winter humidity hadn’t been a problem for me yet. Good thing there’s a whole-house humidifier on the forced-hot-air heating system. I’ll just turn that on, right? Wrong. I don’t think this system had ever worked since it was installed…. Continue reading
