Equipment

Metal Storage

We do not currently have a method to store materials besides leaving stuff in random spots in the dirty room.

Welding

Consumables

We have an 80 cubic foot tank of 75% Ar/25% CO2. It cost ~$48 to get refilled at airgas where we have a tax exemption. We do not currently charge for gas although if you are doing a large project you should chip in some extra money for buying gas. We stock 0.023", 0.030", and 0.035" ER70S-6 carbon steel MIG wire. We also do not currently charge for this although if you use a large amount please chip in extra. Airgas sells this wire for a relatively good price ($2.50/lb in 5kg spools).

We do not stock any consumables for the TIG welder currently. The gas tank for the MIG welder can be used for the TIG welder.
