Making an hour wheel
This is Rob's class making an hour wheel. Its one of the things which makes our curriculum stand out and well liked by course applicants. A big emphasis is on micro mechanics and where possible, part making.
Cutting the spokes of the wheel
Its precise work ..
The result. Not a small feat by the way.
Checking the specifications on the profile projector.
