Description: Hive member Brad Walsh will be doing an introduction to using the metal lathe. Learn what it does and how it can be used. Maybe you can even mill threads on a bolt! A small ($5) donation is requested to cover the cost of materials (aluminum piece and carbide insert).

Both Events require basic machine safety gear

•Substantial shoes (no sandals or open toe) Hot metal chips can hurt.

•Long hair pulled back in a ponytail.

•No hand jewelry (rings, watches).

•Eye protection (safety glasses can be provided).

•Prefer no long sleeves, they can be rolled up though.

•Idea is to not have anything to catch on the spinning tool/part and pull you into the process.
