I’ve had an idea in my brain for a while that I should schedule an evening where I introduce people on how to use some of the more …intimidating shop equipment safely, effectively, and confidently. This intro night will be with a focus on hands-on skill development, while keeping the talking relatively brief.
Lecture Topics will include:
- Safety Philosophy in a shop environment
- Identifying hazards with SCIENCE!
- Personal Protective Equipment
Hands-on Safe-Use Demonstrations will include the following machines:
- Drill Press
- Cordless Drill (may skip this one, or cover it very briefly, if everyone has used one before)
- Bench Grinder
- Angle Grinder
- Wood Lathe
- Scroll Saw
- Buffing Machine
When: Tuesday, 27 March, 2012 @ 7:30
Who: anyone that uses the tools at the hackspace or would like a intro in to basic power tools
