In order to be in compliance with the new State and County regulations, COVID acceptable masks must be worn at all times when in the Guild shop.
Note: Completion of Intro to the Guild (all members) and Getting Started (beginners only) are prerequisites for taking this class. If you've taken the S & O class within the last year but still need the old Machine Skills classes, this is the new class you need to take.
This class is designed for the member to obtain a Guild Shop Card (formerly called the Green Card) and is required to work in the Guild machine room or to take classes using the “core” power tools.
The class consists of two 4-hour sessions and will certify you on the commonly used "core” power tools: chop saw, bandsaw, jointer, planer, table saw, stationary sanders and the drill press.
The instructor will demonstrate using each tool and discuss safe practices. There will be the opportunity to practice using each tool. By the end of the class, one should feel comfortable operating each tool safely. Upon successful completion, the instructor will issue a Guild Shop Card. Materials will be provided.
Please contact Doug Drake at email@example.com with questions. For more information on the Shop Certification process; https://guildoforegonwoodworkers.org/Safety-Classes-&-Shop-Certification
