Serious harm can be caused to operator, bystanders and machine by incorrect operation. All those using lathes must be trained/assessed to make sure they are taught or know how to correctly use the equipment.

We have a number of people who will be available performing the above training/assessing, they are:

  • Andy Last
  • further names to appear in due course

If you are interested in being taught or assessed for manual lathe use in the Dyson Centre, please email the Manager, Rich on rlr20 - the list of people who have expressed an interest thus far is below.

(Expressions of interest in the computer controlled lathes will be dealt with on a bespoke basis.)

When you email, please can you indicate (for each machine type you're expressing an interest in), in short summary (ie a sentence or three) your level of expertise, for example:

...note: that is not insisting you learn all of the above before you can be signed off for using the lathes, though it is perhaps good for you to know what is possible on a lathe.

An indication when in general you might be free would also be useful (for
example, only afternoons, and Tuesday's and Thursday's are in general good).
