Metal Shop Introduction
Greg will introduce the metal shop with a basic safety discussion, tour of the metal shop, explanation of operations and procedures, and available equipment. Welding demonstrations and hands-on practice will be available for those interested in participating and making some sparks. There is some loaner equipment, but if you have your own welding gear, you are encouraged to bring it to this workshop. This class is a prerequisite for any future welding workshops.
There will be a fee for this class of $20 for the general public, $10 for current Knox Makers members. There will be a maximum of 30 spots for this class.
Knox Makers is a place for the Knoxville area’s engineers, artists, hobbyists, innovators, educators and entrepreneurs to work and play. We are a technology and art collective dedicated to the promotion of creativity enabled and informed by science. Our lectures, workshops, and outreach programs inspire and educate both members and the general public. Our workshop provides members with both the space for large projects and the tools to complete them. We are a non-profit educational organization supported by member dues and staffed by volunteers.
