Princeton Students: Fundamentals of Machining


This just arrived in my inbox.  If you are a DIYer and a Princeton Student, this class should be right up your alley.  I’m signing up for the Friday session.

Fundamentals in Machining: a 5-week, 15-hour workshop; Starts Oct 13

Come and learn to use machine shop and make the most of your research
projects. If you can dream it up, you can learn how to make it.

This non-credit course provides undergraduate, graduate, and technical
staff with hands-on experience in safe operating practices in the
machine shop environment. In this 5-week, 15-hour workshop you will
learn how to machine various types of metals by way of four different
projects. Students will learn how to operate the most versatile and
most commonly used machines in the industry today, the Bridgeport
Milling Machine and the Engine Lathe.

After completing the course, you will be able to use, under
supervision, the facilities in the student shop for fabrication of
lab/research projects in order to enhance your learning experience at
the School of Engineering and Applied Science.
