Student Shop

The Student Shop is available for working on official Physics & Chemistry Department projects. Access to the Student Shop is controlled by key-card. Training is required to be given access to the student shop. Before you are granted access, you will need to take a training session and agree to a set of safety rules. There is a general training session, which covers the basics and also the bandsaw. There are also training sessions for the Lathe and the Milling Machine.
