There is a variety of equipment available for faculty and student use found at the Materials Lab. The pictures below represent the fixed equipment in the shop. See the page dedicated to Materials Lab Cheqroom inventory to view the various hand tools and power tools available for use in the shop and/or available to check-out. For the machines below, click on the image to be taken to a page with manual (available for most) and video tutorials (available for some) for the specific equipment.
Students must take an introduction shop orientation course about the Materials Lab to gain access to the equipment and resources. For some equipment such as the CNC Machines you will need to work directly with a full-time staff member in order to operate the equipment. For access to the laser cutters a separate orientation and certification process is required for access and use. Some equipment can be directly checked out from the main checkout desk for a short period of time.
If at anytime you have a question about shop equipment and/or shop safety please reach out to a shop lab attendant or ask one of the full-time staff for help!
