What tools and materials are required for the Machine Tool Technology Program?
The Machine Tool Department supplies all materials and tools needed to complete the shop projects. Students do need to provide safety classes, all of the normal school items (pencil, paper, loose leaf notebook, etc.), and most students find a hand held scientific calculator useful.
Although all of the shop tools are provided by the school, many students begin to purchase some personal tools during their time in the program.
