New Lathe! And Training.

Rylan and Erik delivered the new-to-us lathe at 4AM this morning. Since this is now probably our most dangerous piece of equipment, we are going to be strict about only allowing trained people to use it. If you want to be in the first group of trained people, sign up at: https://www.picatic.com/event14782110102438
$50.
NOTE: This is a two day course, two hours each day, for a total of four hours.
