Just this week local Company Miller Electric donated much needed protective equipment to the Appleton Makerspace! The donated equipment will be used for both day-to-day use by Makerspace members, and for regular welding classes we will offer the community as soon as we have an adequate shop and equipment.
Within the week, Makerspace members will be putting the PPE to use on various projects. This addition will allow members who cannot afford to purchase their own welding gear to use Makerspace welding equipment safely. It will also be used for welding classes offered to the public after we are able to equip our metal shop with air-handling.
The Appleton Makerspace is very grateful for the donation from Miller Electric, and will be putting all of the gear, including smocks, caps, gloves, and an auto-darkening helmet to good use!
