This is a dangerous machine, and is perfectly capable of causing serious injury. For this reason, you must be trained to use it. It's fitted with a key-switch emergency stop so that only keyholders can switch it on.
Members of our group will offer mentoring, though we might find some kind of trade system (skill-share, beers, travel-cost...).
