While building a nut and preparing a threaded rod you will gain experience with our lathe and mill. You will also practice layout, facing with the mill, drilling, taping, adjusting a four jaw chuck, using the cut off saw, and filing a chamfer. 

This class is suitable both as a beginning class and for those who are fairly new to the shop and wish to gain experience.

You will not only get a chance to gain confidence in using our shop tools, but have a lovely square nut that spins freely on your threaded rod demonstrating your proficiency with threading.


  • A materials fee of $5 is included in the price of the class.
  • Please wear closed-toe shoes in our studio. Tie back long hair, avoid loose-fitting clothing and jewelry and roll up sleeves. Wear hearing protectors when warranted and safety glasses; bring your own or use BARN's.
