The Pier 9 Workshop is excited to share our full roster of Machine Training Curriculum on Instructables. Each class was developed over 5 years of hands-on collaboration with industry experts. We hope the knowledge we've gathered here will help any level of user be successful in a workshop.

Disc and belt sanders have rotating abrasive surfaces that can be used to shape the edges or corners of metal parts. Deburring and wire wheels smooth metal surfaces, and the buffing wheel puts a high polish on plastic.

This class is part of a greater course series covering Metal Shop safety and basic use. In this course series you will learn how to operate and adjust machines to safely begin basic metal projects. A free PDF download of this class is available at the end of the last lesson.
