Young Engineer Training – May 2018

Back to Young Engineers

This month the emphasis is Soldering, Brazing and Welding with our chairman Wally at the helm helped by other members of the club.

We start with a bit of history of the various torches and soldering irons explaining which are best suited to each type of job.  Safety is very important here as the items you are working with get extremely hot.

Then on to a demonstration

Now it’s the Young Engineers turn, ably supervised of course.

And finally a sample of the completed test pieces completed by the Young Engineers (and a mum).
