Please place all reusable materials on the recycling racks, the storage racking is for models in progress only due to the limited space!
We'd like to give a big welcome to all new students and those returning for another academic year! Over the coming weeks things will be picking up and the machine shop inductions dates are now up. We have some extra machine shop inductions for the Live Projects on the 2nd & 4th of October to get you going on your new projects.
What's new at the workshop?
Over the summer we have been busy upgrading the machine shop.
Hegner Multicut Quick Scrollsaw
We have 2 brand new Hegner Multicut Quick Scrollsaw's built into a table with integrated dust extraction. It's a great improvement over our previous scrollsaw. This is great for fine detail work in wood and acrylic. Has a large throat capacity and able to do angled cuts. It also has a really quick and simple mechanism for removing the blade to enable easy internal cuts. Axminster BS11 Bandsaw
A bandsaw which is great for cutting smaller materials. Can be easily set up to do angled cuts.
We look forward to seeing you all soon. Stuart & Rob
We please request that anything you want to keep that is still in the workshops be removed by 12:00pm Monday 19th June. Anything left after this time will be treated as waste and dealt with accordingly.

Preliminary plans are for the workshop to be closed the week leading up to the exhibition. This is to allow staff to fabricate new structures and set up boards.If everything runs smoothly we will be able to re-open, but please do not leave anything important for this week. I strongly advise any model making or base fabrication that you need for the exhibition is done next week!
