Metal shop is really starting to come on line. And I have been made aware of how many ways you can really hurt yourself in the metal shop. So we are forming a metal shop committee to manage training, access and organization of the space.
Metal Janet and I are the first 2 members, but everyone who wants to be involved in the running of the metal shop can join.
Because there are many unexpected ways to do permanent damage to yourself and some rather expensive tools in the metal shop, training on our specific tools is required before use. For experienced users this is just a quick check-out conversation with an area champion (at this time that’s Metal_Janet) to lay out the specific quirks and expectations of this shop."
If you are interested in becoming a trainer, join the committee.
I am super hyped to show off all the capabilities of the metal shop, and hopefully it will become a central, well used and well managed part of the Hackspace.
