    Default Aluminium Workshop Bin

    Every workshop needs a bin.
    For housing waste be it scrap metal, filings, swarf or mistakes.
    I have just constructed a new workshop/Welding bay and need a metal bin for all of the above reasons. I rang all the major hardwares and the machinery shop, I then rang an industrial cleaning supply company but alas none had a small metal bin.

    They all had plastic bins and some had S/S bins with plastic liners.
    No good when a red hot piece of metal is tossed into it.

    I used aluminium tread plate for the flooring of my workshop and had a few pieces of scrap left over. I thought why don't I make my own bin out of the same material as the flooring.
    Custom job.

    I marked up the 1.4mm alloy tread plate and folded it in my panbrake.

    This stuff folds pretty easy and looks great.

    I placed the tail of my scrap into my home made shear and cut to length.

    I then switched on the TIG welder and let it warm up for 30 minutes before welding up the side joint.

    My alloy welding is getting better and the panbrake broadens what I can make.
