Training Procedures

Both full-time machine shop staff and student proctors are available for machine shop instruction and supervision. To request training, send a request to shop-training@lists.olin.edu. This will begin the scheduling process and allow you to start any preliminary reading that may be required.

Training procedures depend on the machine and the safety rating found on the Policy page. You may be trained on MIG welding and the manual mills and lathes and the 2-axis CNC mills. More advanced fabrication such as the 3 and 4 axis CNC mill, CNC lathe and the water-jet cutter should go through work orders; consult the machine shop personnelif you are unsure how to proceed.
