Lathe Authorization Class is posted for Tuesday, November, 1. Starting at 6:00 pm. Plan on 2 hours.
This is a basic authorization class. There are three primary areas of emphasis, Personal Safety Practices, Safe and secure mounting methods, and a look at basic tool use. We will make some chips in the mounting methods.
Much of the safety coverage will touch on various aspects that are involved with turning on a wood lathe. Dust, sanding, finishing, wood selection, the MakeiCT Hazardous Wood Policy, and the implications for your safety and the safety of others.
More details are available on the registration.
A number sessions will be scheduled during November and December, at various times and days. Starting in January, sessions will be scheduled on a frequency similar to other Authorization Courses.
