Tool testing is free for everyone and required before you may use the machine tools in the shop. You should have had previous training and experience using the equipment, or take a class. Our objective is to ensure that you know how to use the machine tool competently while ensuring the safety of you, other users, and the Asylum's equipment. It may be necessary to schedule more than one session for multiple tools.
Testing is available for the following:
- Milling Machine Rubric
- Metal Lathe Rubric
- Tests on CNC machines are scheduled through your instructor
