With more than 1,500 sq. ft., the machine shop contains a drill press, horizontal band saw, vertical band saw, three bridgeport mills, a sheet metal shear, a bending brake, a waterjet cutter and two lathes for students to utilize. There is also a CNC milling machine that is not available for students to operate, but they can send their approved part files to Nick, our CNC specialists and have their pieces made for them. This is a limited and not necessarily time sensitive resource, but, available nonetheless.

 +
=== 1. Safety First ===
 +
Safety First is the rule we hold highest of the three. This rule applies to both the safety of you as well as others 
 +
 
 +
Keeping yourself safe in the Machine Shop is very important, as there are possibilities for accidents if you don't follow the safety guidelines.  Safety starts with you so don't depend on others to keep you safe.  There is a first aid kit located on the south wall near the Wood Shop door.<br> The following rules must be followed at all times.

=== 2. Reset the Space ===
 +
The Machine Shop has a specific organization to it. Put whatever you use back where it belongs. There is a place for everything and everything has a place. This rule applies to everything in the space. If you use a tool, put it back. If you use a pen, put it back. Throw away your trash and recycling.
 +
 
 +
Now, we understand that sometimes you need to leave projects out. Maybe you are in the middle of a large project and you need something left overnight. In cases like this, it is okay, but you NEED to make prior arrangements  with Nick or Justin.

Please put back the Machinery the way you found it. Clean up chips and any messes you make. NEVER use shop air to clean off the machines.

=== 3. Be Professional ===
 +
This commandment has two sides to it. It covers the idea of acting like professional (which Webster’s defines as “exhibiting a courteous, conscientious, and generally businesslike manner in the workplace”). The term also describes the standards of education and training that prepare members of the profession with the particular knowledge and skills necessary to perform their specific role within that profession. Hopefully, you are learning both of these as part of your education at George Fox University. In the Welding Lab we expect you to develop as a courteous, conscientious, and skilled craftsman, understanding the tools and equipment in the Maker Hub and how to use them effectively.
 +
 
 +
Being a professional has some obvious ramifications in terms of behavior. First, be Christlike. Think of others better than yourselves. Share. If you have been welding for a prolonged time and someone else is waiting for the machine, let them use the machine for a while. This is being a professional.
 +
 
 +
If you are learning to how to use a machine, and you can't something to work the way you want - ASK SOMEONE! Learn! Become a professional. Learn the craft. This is an educational space. You might think it will be quick and you can just get it done “your” way and not learn how to do it correctly. Be a Professional and learn the proper way, and then be available to teach others.
 +
 
 +
One very important, and likely difficult part of being a professional is to correct others when they are not being professional. It is your responsibility to speak up when you see somebody doing something inappropriate. If you see somebody doing something unsafe, not resetting the space, or being unprofessional, the professional thing to do is to remind them of the three commandments and ask them politely to correct their action. This is OUR space, not any individual's. As a group, we expect everyone in the space to keep the space safe, clean, and operable for everyone. 
 +
 
 +
If someone acts disgracefully unprofessional to you in the Machine Shop, you are welcome to bring the issue to Justin or Nick's attention.

==General Machine Shop Knowledge==
 +
Machining is the process of removing material so it is subtractive manufacturing. We have a variety of machines in the shop.
 +
 
 +
The 3 main processes include milling, turning, and drilling. 
    +
Each machine has its own special purpose and benefits.  The drill press will produce holes quickly but normally has less precision than using a milling machine.  The lathe is normally used for making round parts and drilling.  The metal laser is good for making fast precise cuts in sheet metal. The waterjet can cut steel up to 1" thick but it takes a long time to cut thick materials. The finger brake allows you to make bends in sheet metal.  The shear is good for cutting straight lines in thin sheet metal or making smaller pieces. 
 +
 +
Here are a few good steps to being successful in the Machine Shop. 
 +
* Make sure your workpiece is held securely before making cuts.
 +
* Metal can be hot and sharp so always be careful when picking up material pieces.
 +
* Make sure you you have been properly trained before attempting to use a machine.
 +
* Keep hands away from moving parts on machines.
 +
* Always ask if you have questions on how to do something.
 +
Here are a couple things to keep in mind:
 +
* Material can be very hot after machining.
 +
* Machining can produce very sharp edges.
 +
* Never try to operate machinery when you are tired.
 +
* Never work in the shop with loose clothing or items that could get pulled into a machine.
    +
== Canvas Certification ==
 +
Before working with any of the equipment in the Machine Shop you will need to take the [https://georgefox.instructure.com/courses/1252 general lab quiz] as well as the specific quiz for each machine you are trying to use.
