Machine Skills 101 will teach you how to work accurately and safely with some fundamental machine tools. The course starts below by taking you through some basic steps you need to learn to take when using any machine tool. Once you've learnt these steps, you'll be ready to come down to the Lab for the practical part of the course. We'll demonstrate how to use four very useful tools: the bandsaw, disc sander, bobbin sander and drill press, and then teach you to use these machines for yourself.
Please be sure to concentrate when you go through the following points, as you'll need to pass a short quiz before you can book a place on the practical part of the course. The booking form immediately follows the quiz - IF you get enough of the answers right!
You should only need about 5 minutes to go through the points, and 5 minutes to complete the quiz.
