Machining Workshop I
Intro to Machining
- A maximum of 2 students will be allowed to take this workshop at the same time with students working together.
The duration of this workshop is only 12 hours, in order to maximize the benefit each student should do the required pre-homework before attending the actual workshop. It's not required to fully understand all of this material, however you will be familar with terms and operations along with concepts beyond what we will be teaching. Additionally, we have much more training material beyond what is presented here so students are free to go beyond the prescribed homework. However at a minimum please try to get through the prescribed homework.
