In this workshop you'll become familiar with the St Paul branch of the Minnesota Tool Library and learn how to use the shop machines confidently & safely. No experience is necessary.
We will cover the safe setup & operation of the jointer, table saw, planer, miter saw, belt/spindle sanders, drill press and band saw. The class size is small so there will be plenty of time for questions and to try each tool. This is a great intro to some of our core on-site tools. It also makes a wonderful refresher if it's been awhile and you need to re-familiarize yourself with the shop.

The Minnesota Tool Library is a membership based non profit which offers members access to tools, workshop space, and community. By sharing access to tools, no one needs to own costly tools for occasional use. With MTL, we all have low-cost access to the tools we need, when we need them.
Moreover, we engage the community to expand its collective skill set, helping each other to learn which tools to use for meaningful projects and connect with each other while doing it.
Classes are vital to MTL’s mission. They open the doors to all to learn about different tools, how to handle them and empower community members to create projects of their own.
