The space has access to an arc (stick) welder as well as a gasless MIG (TIG? i can never remember).

Sadly at the moment we cannot undertake welding in the space, this is predominantly for a few reasons.

Essentially our insurance would only cover us welding if it was done in a clean, safe room. Obviously the workshop with its dust issues does not count. We also would have to make sure to protect anyone else in the building from possible arc flash (which means the carpark isn't suitable either, ignoring hte lack of power).

Whilst we would like to address this in the future, as it currently stands, no welding is allowed anywhere on LeHS property.
