As of right now the TIG welder is still out for repair and it is unknown if it will be ready to use for the class on Saturday. If the welder is not back at DMS by 7:00 pm on Friday, 08 March then I’ll be canceling the class. I’m doing this so you will not be planning your Saturday around a class that will most likely not have the key piece of equipment available.
Just so people are aware the issues with the TIG welder being repaired have nothing to do with DMS or Metro welding supply. Here is a link to the post that has been covering the repairs to the TIG welder, https://talk.dallasmakerspace.org/t/out-for-repair-lincoln-sq-wave-tig-welder-popped-fan-stopped-pre-use-2-11-19/50691/38. For those of you who do not want to go through it here is a quick summary.
A board went out, the TIG was taken to Metro for repairs
A new board was ordered but there was a shortage on Lincoln Electric’s side
New board arrives and is installed
The solenoid died so a new one is ordered
The new solenoid was suppose to arrive today but didn’t show up.
Right now we are waiting for the solenoid to arrive and tested.
