Please read this section carefully.

If you have any questions about the operation of any machine or tool ask your instructor.

Following a few basic safety procedures will assure a hazard-free experience for you and others working in the lab. Ask your instructor or open lab facilitator to assist you in starting up equipment and in fabrication and modifications of existing equipment. Practice common sense. If your not comfortable with the machine set up, don’t do it. Most lab accidents are a result of lack of knowledge, not carelessness. If you have any doubt, ask your instructor or lab assistant.
