 Registration is closed for this event
Conquer your fear of power tools! The Quick Start Guide Series introduces beginners to using the equipment we have in our facility. Sunday, April 28 3-4pm

Never used power tools? You're not alone. Our Quick Start Guide class series helps beginners understand and use the basic equipment in our work zones. These one-on-one, hands-on sessions cover the essential knowledge needed to operate that tool. These sessions are taught by our Metal Shop Coordinator, Alex Titcomb.  

Please choose your session topic from the list provided below during the registration process.

Available Sessions for this date:

1 Hour Sessions: $55 COG Members | $65 Non-Members

Quick Start Guide 1: Cordless Drills (Metal Shop)

There's more than one way to drill a hole. This class will cover how to use battery powered hand drills, and how to choose between different drill bits (twist, spade, forstner, hole saw, stepper, etc). 

Quick Start Guide 2: Angle Grinders (Metal Shop)

Cutting metal may seem like a daunting task. Angle grinders may be messy and loud, but they make the task easy! This class will cover how to cut, grind, polish, and sand metal. 

Quick Start Guide 3: Cutting and Bending Sheet Metal (Metal Shop)

Sheet steel and aluminum may seem like daunting materials to work with. This class will show you how to cut straight lines on the shear and bend simple angles on the brake. 


No previous experience necesary. All materials included. Participants must be 18+. Registration for all classes in this series closes 1 hour before the workshop begins. Discounts will automatically be applied to current COG members during the registration process.
