Training

THE MILL CAN CAUSE SERIOUS INJURY. ONLY APPROVED OPERATORS ARE PERMITTED TO USE IT.

Training and induction will start with a tour of the tool introducing all its parts. The training we give is a course of about 10 hours, in several sessions, and is intended to get a user started with enough information to work safely alone in aluminium and brass.

All trained users must sign a safety work-list before being signed off as competent on the Warco mill.

As well as the training we give, this series of metal working videos from MIT is highly recommended. Episode 1 covers measuring and marking work, 2 covers band sawing and 3 covers drilling. Episodes 4 to 7 cover milling and 8 is about lathe work. Introduction to Machine Shop Tools and Skills
