About the Course

Train on basic use of the Acer metal lathe by turning and fabricating your very own metal bottle stopper. Practice the safe use of lathe tools while learning basic turning, facing, and tapering operations. Learn about different tools and their applications, speeds and feeds, and the different ways of clamping and securing material. NOTE: Completion of the project is mandatory for unsupervised access, and will require additional time beyond class. Members will receive one extra shop day at NextFab, included in the class fee.
