The big Oliver Lathe is now operational and can be used for many types of projects. Come learn to set it up and handle the eccentricities of the new Variable Speed Drive.


Attendees must wear the appropriate clothing:

  1. Closed toed shoes or boots.
  2. Long hair restrained in such a manner that it can't become entangled in the machine.
  3. No loose garments, such as ties, aprons, anything that could get entangled.
  4. Safety glasses. We do have some available to loan.


The Introduction is open to non-members as well as members that want to learn how to operate the lathe safely. No registration or RSVP is required. Just check the Xerocraft Calendar for a scheduled class and show up.
