Newman Lab, Wilson Lab, and the Annex all contain welding areas. Several different gases are used for cutting, soldering, and welding. These gases include oxygen, propane, nitrogen, argon, acetylene, argon/helium, and carbon dioxide.

Always keep combustibles away from oxygen gas because the combination is highly flammable.
Always perform welding in an area where others are unlikely to be exposed to the harmful intense light from arcs, erecting opaque screens and/or placing signage warning of the hazard Make sure the welded object is allowed to cool before anyone can come into contact with it, attaching signage if it will be left unattended.
