Student clubs use this Jet engine lathe for machining round parts for their respective projects.
The Project Based Lab is intended for students who are in clubs or projects to meet up and explore real world challenges and come up with solutions, gaining knowledge and experience in the process. Clubs such as BAJA and ASCE meet to come up with and work on their designs for their respective competitions, while Capstone classes allow students to design, build and test their own project to ensure it meets the desired specifications.
The Project Based Lab consists of six major machines and other smaller tools:
- Tig, Mig, and Stick Welder
- Ridgid Drill Press
- Manual Engine Lathe
- Bridgeport Vertical Mill
- Belt Sander
- Disc Grinder
- Tube Bender
- Foot Shear
- Box & Pan Brake with Foot Clamp
- Vice Clamp
- Basic Hand Tools
Students built this Tumbler as part of their capstone project.
