The Ways of the Water Jet

Wednesday, March 1, 2023 - 12:30pm to 2:30pm
Water jet cutters are game changing.  Learn how to get what you want out of MakeHaven's water jet from an expert in the field. For members who have a basic knowledge of the water jet and it's uses, Joel brings over 13 years of experience with waterjet cutters to the class to show participants some of the next level things the machine can produce, as well as a wealth of tips & tricks. 

This class will cover intermediate concepts of the tool along with participant driven advanced topics.  Have you tried and failed to get the jet to do something?  Ever wanted to cut glass?  Joel will spend two hours working through current challenges the participants are facing or he will walk through an advanced demonstration depending on participation. 

You'll never look at a piece of metal the same way again. 

*Participants must be badged on the water jet PRIOR to taking this class.* Badging Video & Quiz."
