Event Details

This is a two part class. Part 1 is Tuesday 2/1, 6:30-10pm, part 2 is Tuesday 2/8, 6:30-10pm.

Machining is one of the most powerful and precise material removing and shaping toolsets available. The expert machinist will command a handful of tools to take an unshaped material, and transform it.

In this class the student will learn techniques for turning, boring, milling, and tapping all while transforming some aluminum and brass into knuckle rings with a big shiny spike. Machines covered will be the lathe and mill primarily, the bandsaw, drill press, table grinder for finishing materials, and an array of hand tools - files, hand taps.

The first class will cover the basics - general use and techniques on the machines. Detailed plans will be created to turn some hunks of aluminium into what will be knuckle rings.

The second class will put all the basics into full use, with each student going from design to creation.

Everyone will go home with what they've designed and built.

This class is $100 and a $10 materials fee.
