Lathe Training

Lathe training is done in group sessions. The tour of the machine is followed by an explanation of the hazards. Each member then participates in a short construction project to learn what it feels, sounds and looks like to do it properly. It should take 2 to 2.5 hours.

The main danger is getting caught in the work because the motor will not stop if this happens. Users must not wear loose clothing, or allow hair to get near the workpiece.

Gloves are NOT recommended.

Chips from the work are a hazard to eyes so eye protection is essential.

Before starting the motor make sure the chuck is moving freely and that the key is out.

The swarf, particularly steel swarf has sharp edges so a brush should be used to clean everything.

The training script is available here.
