Our Shed is located at Old Petrie Town, Dayboro Road, Whiteside, and is in the Old Petrie Town Village.
Membership is open to men of all ages, 18 and above. We provide a welcoming environment in which men can become friends, share skills, be involved in projects that assist the local community, learn new skills or just sit and have a chat.
The Shed has a range of equipment available for use by members including wood lathes, metal lathes, panel saw, table saw, linishers, grinders, band saws and other equipment.
All members undergo competency-based training on the various machines regardless of their prior knowledge, skills or experience. However, recognition of prior learning and trade skills is taken into account when accrediting members on machines. The purpose of this is to ensure safety for all members as well as meet our Insurer’s requirements.
The workshops only operate when there is a Team Leader in attendance. We also have First Aid Officers, as well as Workplace Health and Safety Officers and assistants who ensure that appropriate workplace practices are in place and observed at all times in the workshop areas.
We are open Monday and Tuesday from 8.00 a.m. to 12 noon, and Wednesday and Friday from 8.00 a.m to 1.00 p.m. with an opportunity for a social get-together on these days.
Please note that the Shed is closed on Thursdays, weekends, and public holidays.
We invite you to come along and have a look at our Shed to see what we have to offer – Wednesday or Friday mornings are best as experienced members will be available on those mornings to answer any questions you may have.
