The Band Saw is considered one of the most versatile tools in a woodworking shop. It can cut boards from logs and slice thin boards from thick ones. On the other hand, it can cut delicate curves and precise joints. The Drill Press provides power and accuracy you can't get drilling by hand. It can be used to make precise joints in addition to drilling uniform holes. Our Guild shop has a two bench style sanders; a combination Disc/Belt Sander and a Spindle Sander.
If you are not confident in your mastery of these machines, then this is the class for you. We will discuss best practice for each operation, you will see it demonstrated, and then you will have the opportunity to perform the procedure yourself, hands on. By the end of the class, you should feel comfortable that you can operate these machines safely. Materials will be provided.
This class is designed to help you with Green Card Certification on these machines.
A minimum of 2 students is required to conduct this class. Please contact Doug Drake at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
A Shop Attendant needs to be an intermediate woodworker and is expected to work at least one shift a month, plus attend the monthly SA meeting.
