About the Sculpture: Metal Fabrication & Welding Shop
The Metal Fabricating and Shop is equipped with oxy/acetylene, MIG, and TIG-welding equipment as well as a spot welder and plasma torch, vertical and horizontal band saws, a chop saw, drill press, and belt sander.
In addition, a four-foot manual slip roll for bending 16-gauge mild steel, plus a sheet metal brake, shear, and notcher also exist.
The metal fabrication shop features a large rolling gate to accommodate the maneuvering of large works as well as to let light and fresh air into the workshop.
Scrap metal is available in limited supply. Supplies such as sanding disks, various waxes, and casting metals must be purchased by students unless enrolled in Metal Techniques or Sculpture 1.
