MTL103: Basic Metal Shop SBU
Class Number 10-54125

In this Safety and Basic Use (SBU) class, learn to use the cutting and shaping tools most commonly needed when working with metal. The tools work best on materials at least 1/8” thick, but some will work on thinner material as well. These tools are designed to work with steel and aluminum.
