No matter what you are repairing or restoring, sooner or later you are going to have to make or repair that elusive spare part! Our two day machining for restoration course will teach you the mechanical skills needed to be able to do just that.
The course consists of two days working in our friendly, well equipped environment where you will learn the following: lathe and milling techniques, identifying threads, restoring old components, making bolts and screws, making and fitting new bearings and much more. You are encouraged to bring along a problem project part, where you can discuss the issue with fellow restorers and your experienced tutor.
You will start your day with a welcome talk, including a hot drink, health and safety brief and a breakdown of the machines and tools you will use.
No machining experience needed. All materials for set projects are included in the cost.
The minimum age is 14 years old and anyone under 16 must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the course and must not be left unattended during class hours. If you would like to read our terms and conditions click here.
