Glen Jones from theboilershop.com.au demonstrates with the use of a pair of dividers and a straight edge how to bisect an arc. This fabrication Training bisect a given angle video was made to assist metal fabricators in the workplace with fabrication training tips and advice. You can also view one of me other Fabrication Training videos from the list below.

I made this pipe fitting video for my workplace
These marking out skills are geometric construction techniques which are a dying art for the metal fabrication trade. Glen believes these skills should be upheld and maintained by all metal fabricators. It doesn’t matter whether you are a sheet metal worker, a platter, boilermaker, fabricator or an iron worker. These geometric construction techniques should be passionately pursued to maintain the intellectual knowledge when it comes to marking out on sheet plate surfaces.
Geometric development and marking out skills are not just required by metal fabricators on the shop floor but are also a valuable tool which can be used by programmers and CNC operators who operate CNC cutting equipment such as Laser cutters, Plasma Cutters & water jet cutters.
The best programmers and operators of CNC cutting equipment are fabricators from the shop floor who have learnt CAD skills and can use their intellectual trade knowledge to push design limits to the edge.
With the outbreak of the COVID19 virus and the impact on the fabrication industry let’s create Onshoring by up skilling our fabrication workforce. All of the basic fabrication skills need to be brought back into fabrication training, let us create the foundation and then move into understanding CAD systems and CNC programing. The greater the knowledge and skills that tradesman can become equipped with the greater chance we have to “MAKE THE FABRICATION TRADE GREAT AGAIN”.
Background of The Boiler Shop
Visit my website and discover dxf digital files that you can download and fabricate. Some of my designs enhance traditional wrought iron architectural work. I have a range of other items which I intend to digitize and introduce and make available to download later in 2020.
I have previously designed, fabricated and assembled many functional items which you can see via my gallery link on my web page. Some of my design work has ended up in places such as Toronto, Milwaukee, Ottawa & Sydney. It is satisfying knowing that some of my designs are in use in different corners of the globe.
“MAKE THE FABRICATION TRADE GREAT AGAIN”.

3. The next page provides all options for each design
In this Video Glen Jones from the Boiler Shop.com.au shows how to twist square bar using thermal heating equipment and a jig built for the task.
Free dxf Download
Glen Jones from theboilershop.com.au is looking at giving away free cnc files for laser cutting. This offer is until the end of January 2020 only. To see what the items are and get access to the free dxf files, read below and watch the video.
Free dxf Download continued..
On the 1st of February 2020 I will launch my new design range of laser cut wrought iron features. I am looking for metal work enthusiast who would be willing to download and cut out Small weld in Features SF11 & or SF12 for free. This offer is only for the month of January 2020. You can see what SF11 and SF12 look like and their function in the attached video.
I would be grateful if
After you have downloaded and cut the parts out I would grateful for any feedback that could be shared with me, GOOD or BAD, as this will help me improve my system and provide the best possible service for future products that I make available. For those willing to give additional quality feedback with great photos and comments I would consider creating a relationship where I could provide you with free additional downloads of products that I design and make available for the return of quality marketing material that I can use.
It would assist me greatly if I was made aware of any problems that you find with the dxf download process before the launch date of 1st of February 2020.

These unique designs are only available from theboilershop.com.au and have been created by Glen jones to enhance traditional wrought iron architectural work. I have a range of other items which I intend to digitize and introduce and make available to download later in 2020.
I have previously designed, fabricated and assembled many functional cool items which you can see via my gallery link on my web page. It excites me when I know that some of my design work has ended up in places such as Toronto, Milwaukee, Ottawa & Sydney. I am now in the process of making all of my created work downloadable into CNC files and I look forward to witnessing my design work appear across the globe.
