ME101 Metal Shop Basics
Rediscover the Iron Age!You will learn to work with cutting and shaping tools for metal. The focus of this course will be on thicker pieces of metal such as steel and aluminum tube and angle iron, though we will touch on thinner materials like sheet metal as well. This class will cover general machine shop safety, process specific safety, and general use of OSML’s chop saw, sheet metal sheer/brake/roller, metal band saw, drill press, and both angle and pedestal grinders.
With the successful completion of this class, you can use the tools named above in the Metal Shop whenever you work at OSML as a member. (Student members 16-17 years old must be supervised by an adult member who has also completed this class successfully).
