About this Event

This will be part of a multi-part lecture series covering many of the concepts behind Machining. Whether you want to get started or get better at machining this class is for you. This is not a machine access class. It is about how to approach your project before you put it on the machine with the goals of doing it right, doing it accurately, and doing it safely. These lectures will follow the same protocols found in college level classes. All class subjects will be independent of the other classes so It will NOT be necessary to have taken any other classes to attend. Series will last 8-10 lectures. Future lectures will include demos in the machine shop.
