Requesting metal lathe training


I would like the Monday class please. I have a specific part I’d like to make from 1/2” x 5” round stock but I don’t have the stock yet. Can I join?



Warming up an old thread, and I’ve only been a VHS member since about … noon.
But I’d be interested in training on the metal lathe.
Any chance there’s a spot coming up within the next few weeks?

Thank you,


^also interested :slight_smile:


Hi Daniel,

First off, welcome to VHS!

Second, you’ve joined us at a very exciting time. VHS is currently transitioning to a brand new space!

Many of our members are deeply involved in both packing up the old space in preparation for the move, and renovating the new space. So for the new few weeks at least it’s unlikely that folk will have time to run a course.

That being said, if anyone is certified to run the lathe training course and has time, please feel free to mention it here!



I don’t yet know if I’m “certified” yet to run training sessions on either the lathe or mill, but if so, I am willing to do such. As Andrew mentioned, we’re packing and moving, so I don’t know what the shop availability will be for the next few weeks.

That said, I’m at the space now (Jan 6, 11am) and will be here for a few hours. I can do a demo, and go over some basics (unless such is contrary to procedures, I’m still rather new myself :slight_smile: )

Well i wonder how far down the longest list in the world did i get bumped? Oh well i get thw lathe training yet.


I’m thinking that the never-ending threads for equipment training makes it hard to keep track of the whos and whens. There may be a better way…

We still have no power for the machines yet. Trust me when I say there will be many posts when it does get connected, and the room is set up.


i know the room is not fully up and running but when it is. please add me to the list of people looking for lathe training
