Topics to be covered should be safety, straight turning, grooving/parting off, thread cutting, boring and taper turning. Possibly include grinding High Speed Steel tools. Small project incorporating these tasks will be a part of the class and students will spend the majority of the class doing hands on learning in pairs.
When you register classes, an account will be created at txrxlabs.org using your email address. You will be emailed login credentials. Most people who take classes with us just ignore this email, and that is fine.
Come to the lab in person and ask to see Roland or any officer. They can accept payment and give you a receipt. Some classes do have an enrollment cap, so it is better to do this sooner than later.
Most classes are for beginners, and clicking on the class title will take you to the class detail page. The right column shows prerequisites and requirements. If you mouse over them you will see what is required for that class. Some classes require a brief safety class which is taught 20 minutes before the class. Additionally, there may be fee notes which explain how much of the cost goes towards materials.
