Summary

This class focuses on teaching the basic skills needed to machine parts on the Rong-Fu 45 Vertical Mill.

Description

In the wood shop, you have the jointer, the planer, the drill press, router tables, and sanders, plus you sometimes use the table and miter saws for sizing. In the metal shop, you have just the mill. It fills all of those roles and more. With a mill and a lathe, you can eventually make almost any mechanical part in the world. This class focuses on teaching the basic skills needed to machine simple parts on the Rong-Fu 45 Vertical Mill.

Session one, Tuesday night 7-9:30pm, will focus on milling basics needed to precisely square up and dimension material.

Session two, Wednesday night 7-9:30pm, will follow up by teaching skills for locating and creating part features precisely.
