Safety Notes

  • Do not use the bench grinder on aluminum as the aluminum flakes can trap heat in and cause the wheel to fracture.
  • Do not cut off any piece of your body
  • Leave the space as clean as you found it. If you find it in a messy state, please send the coordinator an email describing the mess, date, and time, and then please be extra awesome and clean up after those before you.

Technique

Abom79's channel

Adam doesn't skip over much, so if a project takes 4 hours of shop time, there are probably 4 videos, each between 30 and 50 minutes long. Gives a good sense of pacing, order of operations, and general flow of work. For someone who's new to machining, this can be helpful:
