In this introductory metal machining workshop, you will learn how to:
- Use metal cutting lathe
- Use a milling machine
- Use precision measuring devices (micrometer, dial calipers)
- Make threaded parts
All while creating a compressed air powered oscillating cylinder engine.
Because of the nature of this workshop and the equipment necessary, the date and times of the eight weekly 2 hour sessions will be determined between the Instructor and smaller clusters of students.
This workshop is open to anyone 12 years of age or older (minors with parental supervision). Space is limited, so register today!

This is the basic orientation for anyone who wants to use the Carvey, and is required before taking any future advanced classes.
What is covered:
*Once members have completed the orientation they will need to have their own tool bits to use this machine. Sources of the bits will be discussed in the orientation including purchasing them from Make717.
To register you must be a member in good standing or a STEMPass holder. During the class each person will complete a carving. As these carvings can take 15 minutes class size is limited. If you are using a family membership and want to have two people, you will need to register two people. Once you are properly registered you will be sent additional information including prerequisites to be completed prior to arriving at the orientation. Please no walk-ons. Class size is strictly limited due to time, and equipment availability.
