Fish Guru Wanted by Men's Shed 100 @ 17 Mile Rocks/Darra area

Recommended Posts

G'day all,

Within a few months we are intending to become a minor supplier to "Pet People" in our area and so far we have not got a fish and aquarium Guru or a worm farm Guru

Shed 100 uses Gurus (experts and or enthusiasts) and they are not bosses but they keep an eye on what is happening in their area of expertise and order materials and are pivotal in making their shed activity a success and enjoyable for everyone who chooses to participate.

Shed life should be a journey for anyone who wants to try different activities and likewise our Gurus do not have to be "stuck" with their area of expertise.

Some Shed 100 activities with Gurus are

Our committee, set-up expert for small production runs, welding including stainless steel and aluminium, wood working using machines, metal working using a lathe and some milling, leather work, clocks, coin jewelry, casting small objects in resins and low melting point metals, art (painting and etc) wood turning pens (gift quality in exotic wood) wood turning general.

We have equipment for but no gurus for: sheet metal rolling, shaping and spot welding, recycling non ferrous metals into small sheets and wires for things like belt buckles and trophies, nickel plating, knife and tool sharpening, glass lead-light.

We get a lot of donated materials and goods so some things can be made or refurbished for zero $s.

We do workshop stuff for free for local not for profit organizations and the Mount Ommaney Special School and we would like to continue to do that.

If you are interested in fish but have not got the space or the tick of approval from your domestic manager then why not join our shed,

We have long "smokos" and talk about whatever. Please comment or contact me.

FYI

(There are more registered Men's Sheds in Australia then there are McDonalds) Men's sheds are attributed with saving male suicides and the concept has gone from Oz across the world. Every shed is different, some are more like drop in centres, others are very workshop oriented, some do music, some do bus trips, and cooking courses for those who want it and anything really if you have some expertise to lead the way anything that interests the men will be successful.

Does it matter that i am not a Christian?? :behindsofa:

We are not a Church sponsored Shed we are fully independent, our members can hold any religious or political views they like.

As an example, I am an Atheist and I think religion has had its day, others actively support a local church and most have never mentioned religion.

Our Men's Shed is not teetotal either but we do not mix drink with workshop activities but we do have some social events with drinks.

Tell us what you want, we can do basic rhs (square tube) or a cabinet and even man cave stuff like aluminium checker plate.

just thinking if you go the way of a biggish display tank to show off some fish, would be cool to say the stand is made by the Mens Shed and there may be the option to buy tank stands from the mens shed in the future.
