These past two weeks the class have had six hours of metalwork weekly for Instrument Tech instead of working with wood. This was daunting for me as all I have done with metal is solder guitar pick-ups and fix dodgy leads. We've been thrown into it since starting and I've included some pictures of what I've done so far. On the left I've included a Picture of a soldering exercise, Unlike any soldering I've done before in that we used a gas torch to heat the work, I had only used a ten watt soldering iron for use on guitar pots! One the right is the first day's work, on the left of this picture is a simple piece which we made in order to get familiarized with Filing, Cutting & Drilling metal. One the right hand side of the picture is a lathe exercise we did directly afterwards.
