Step Two

  • It is very strongly suggested that Metal-1 be completed before learning to use the lathe.
  • The training for the lathe is significantly more advanced than the training for the other machines in the MakerSpace.
  • The training is structured to take two hours, and each trainee is expected to read fully through the training documentation before arriving.
  • Even with this training, there are still limitations to your access to this machine. Specifically, lathe operations will still need to be conducted in the presence of a trained Ninja until competency is confirmed
  • Due to high demand, users who are serious about dedicating time to a continued learning of this machine will be prioritized.

Complete the following designs using the provided walk-through instructions to demonstrate your ability to use the machines.
