Metal Lathe/ Mill Training Waiting List

From London Hackspace Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

At the current time we have a limited number of trainers for the machine tools, therefore we are running training for both machines on this one list (we may go back to keeping separate lists in future in which case this page will become redundant)

Please add your details to the bottom of the list below indicating which machine you would like to be trained on first. Once you've had an induction on one machine, you can re-add yourself to the bottom of the list and queue up for an induction on the second machine

In general if you are beginning in machining we recommend starting with the lathe - this tool is really at the heart of most machining operations and understanding how to cut on it is key to understanding other machines such as the mill. If you are more experienced then you can start with whichever machine best suits your project needs

For information on the pre-requisites for training as well as records of inductions that have already happened please see the individual training pages:

In order to get a place on a training session you will need to watch for announcements on the 'lhs-induction-requests' channel on the hackspace Discord server

Note - members who have been on the waiting list for more than 6 months without taking up the offer of a training slot will be removed from the list - this is because a long waiting list sometimes puts off new members as it looks like they will have a very long wait for training. If there's been a particular reason for the absence (e.g. been out of London for a while) then this can easily be extended. And members are more than welcome to re-add themselves to the bottom of the list if they want to later on
