This is an introductory course that will teach students the basics of how to use the woodshop bandsaws.
Tool Sign-off: Red Bandsaw Safety
Proficiency Test: Students must schedule a return date for tool signoff
Prerequisites: Attend the Nova Labs Green Orientation (GO!)
Mandatory Safety: Wear closed-toed shoes, and safety glasses. We can supply safety glasses if needed, but cannot supply shoes. Things that present an "entanglement hazard", like long hair or dangly jewelry should be tied back or removed.
The class discussion will cover basic operation, maintenance, safety concerns, and a few particulars of using these tools at Nova Labs. The instructor will provide documentation for and demonstration of proficiency required for signoff. Attendees will be invited to practice and develop proficiencies under the supervision of the bandsaw instructor at office hours.
