Miller Electric Donates TIG Welder

The Appleton Makerspace’s Metal Shop is a major step closer to being operable with Miller Electric’s generous donation of a Diversion 180 TIG welder. It’s awesome to see a local company like Miller Electric, whose corporate headquarters are just a few blocks away, helping their community. (Check out their Website.)

This machine adds tremendous capability to our shop as it will allow us to weld both steel AND aluminum of a wide variety of thicknesses using a relatively clean and easy to control welding process. 

We’ve been spurred by this exciting addition to hasten setting up a safe and usable Metal Shop. This, along with the previous donation of safety equipment, will bring much more utility and educational opportunity to local Makers and the community.

Please thank Makerspace Member and Miller employee Ryan Peterson for arranging this for us!
