DESCRIPTION: This is the basic metal lathe training. It is required for check-off on the metal lathes (i.e., to get badge access to the lathes in the machining area). We will go over safety, the parts of a lathe, basic turning, facing, and drilling operations, and lathe care/cleanup. This will be a hands-on class, and participants will have opportunities to operate the lathe a bit during the training. Participants will also receive a copy of the lathe manual, which is also a general reference on lathe use. Members only (since the lathe is a red tool).
DATE AND TIME: January 21, 2023, 1pm-5pm.
COST AND REFUND POLICY: $20 per person. The fee goes 100% back to the machining area. Must cancel by the Wednesday before the class to get a refund. If the fee is a financial obstacle to your participation, DM me on slack.
