  • Never clean or remove long swarf/chips while the lathe is spinning
  • Never use your hands to clean chips, use a brush to prevent cuts

You will be expected to act -at all times- in a safe and responsible manner in this shop.

If you behave in a manner that seems likely to harm yourself or others, you will be removed from this course at once.
