Make a set of three custom darts that will give you bragging rights in your family room or local sports bar.

About this Class

In this two-session class, while making your own sporting darts, you can advance your machining skills as you craft three custom, phosphorous bronze dart barrels (bodies), and finish with commercial points, shafts and flights. You’ll drill and tap the barrels for the points and shafts with a 2BA British tap, learn to cut the proper tapers on the bodies, and execute the style of knurling and grooving you decide to machine into your dart barrels. See an example is in the hallway between the Welding and Jewelry studio doors.
