Photos from Engine Turning II Class

We held our first advanced engine turning class last weekend! It was great to see some familiar faces, as the class was made up of returning students from previous sessions. Some students focused their time and energy on one ambitious project, while others tried using different materials, figuring out patterns from photographs of antique objects, and integrating both rose and straightline machine patterns in one piece. Here’s some examples of what we got up to. By demand, a level three class is in the works! Learn about classes and register here.

By the time level 7 classes are on offer we may be building a functional watch in a weekend! How awesome would that be? 🙂


  2. Dear Brittany, If I ask nicely, can you please make and post some movies of the machines in action? I seen some of Peter Smith’s videos on youtube when he demonstrate some rose engine patterns and they are mesmerizing. It like engineering junkie crack, I need more…
