Manual Milling Class

From Asmbly Wiki

This class focuses on using the Rong-Fu 45 Vertical Mill as well as a lot of other tools (DO-All Bandsaw, Sandblaster, Belt Sander, and grinder). It is a required prerequisite for the Tormach class. Each student will leave the class with a key chain made in the class.
