lathe training


Happen to know someone who owns and operates an engineering company in Yorkshire. Who has kindly offered some time to take a small group of people through late training at the hackspace once the new metal working area is operational.

They say they would be happy to train a max group of 3 to 4 people at a time and for coming over and their time they have agreed to the rate of £20 per hour. Thinking this should be shared between the groups that will be doing the training.

They have asked if I can get details of numbers so we can plan which days etc for the training. Will send a doodle to people who are intrested with potential dates and times.


Please reply if your intrested by the way


I’m interested!

Thanks for looking into this!




I’d be interested

Many Thanks,


I’m interested as well.



I am as well!


if there is a second group going I would be intrested in tagging along !


Once lathe is back up and running in new space, or we have a estimated time. I will arrange some dates for some groups. taking in mind the first one that gets ran would probably not be a good as the second one.


I would be interested in learning to use the lathe, however, i am not currently a member of the hacker space. I have sent emails and completed the online forum but i am getting no response, which i assumed was due to the on going move. The lathe is the piece of equipment i am most interested in using. What sort of timescale do you think it will be up and running again?



I would recommend popping down on a weekend if you have the time and somone will set you up with a RFID Fob as there are quite a few people in doing setup.

As for the state of the Lathe im not sure but Woody Dusty ( the area where the lathe is ) is having drywall put up this weekend so i dont think its too far from being ready maybe a week or two ?


Also I reccomend you download and setup Telegram and join its the best way to find out if people are in the space and what is going on in terms of update :


hi, thanks for getting back to me, i will try to pop down next weekend to get the fob setup and have a look around.
