About this Event
in this class we will perform all of the steps necessary to create a balanced wheel using the Clausing-Colchester metal lathe.
All of the set steps will be covered and the balance of the the resulting piece(s) tested on the balance tester if it can be brought down from on top of the cabinets.
Special Considerations and Warnings
Safety glasses are required for use and observation of the Clausing-Colchester lathe as are closed toe shoes. The Machine shop can be a bit grimy so dress appropriately. This is not an intro class for the lathe. Students must have had the intro class for the Clausing-Colchester lathe previously and cut a few basic forms on it. The Instructor is not a machinist and may well be learning as much from the students as the other way around.
