|Thread: Beginner Course?|
Colleges do still offer courses part time in the evening for basic engineering.
They are usually a qualification but sadly the fees are now high like £600 ish.
I have had a look at my local college and they run a course Performing Engineering Operations at level 2.
This course covers as the practical activities
Producing components using hand tools and fitting techniques
Plenty of teaching by doing and little classroom work making it more suitable for the practical person.
|Thread: Hi New member fron the West Midlands|
Thank you Neil,
I will keep everyone informed of what I get and how I get on with it.
Hi to all, I am from the West Midlands UK and have just retired from an Engineering career. I am about to purchase my first lathe and make (I know not what yet but something). I have never been without the use of metal cutting machines and able to use my companies equipment for all the work I needed to do for home. Now finding myself thinking I will just turn, mill, grind or some other process and not being able to because the access to equipment went as I retired is very frustrating. So purchase a lathe will be my first as a lathe is such a versatile tool. Now this will be the first machine I have needed to purchase I have to realise it will be a hobby machine I need, not an industrial CNC machine and the amount of money I will throw at it will dictate what I am able to get.
