Platen Wall Training in Thunder Bay
Recently, Instructor Terry Nichol conducted a class in platen wall construction. Business Representative, Daryl Bray, says "The training centre was donated some tubes by one of our contractors and Brother Nicol developed the class to update the skills of the members of the Thunder Bay Hall."
The class of Boilermakers from 555 & 128 laid out the tubes, cut them to size, milled the ends, fitted the tubes and membrane, then welded the tubes - a tig root along with 7018 filler and cap.
