Coffee machines and turning

We realized that we have many systems in use at the same time since everyone have their special preferences when it comes to methods of brewing. This is very important for watchmakers!

Kevin and Joe turning blue steel.

Brad's square and slot making practice. Looking very good so far!
Tryggvi wanted to experment with hand making; this is a platform for further refinement that he made.

Drill Press Crash!

This drill press from Aciera has been working flawlessly since 2009, today we encountered a small problem with it. It needed to be partially disassembled and the students learned a lot about the inside of a drill press as well as working in a team; the problem solving went very fast and the job was done in less than one and a half hour. I am very proud of my students today!


Halfway there!

Finished and cleaned, works even better than when new!
