For all projects worked on in the machine shop, you MUST complete an electronic Machining Work Permit. Permits will be approved Monday through Friday ONLY. Requests submitted after 12PM on Friday will NOT be approved until Monday.

Usage of bandsaws, grinders, belt sanders, and drill presses requires a Light Machining Work Permit which is automatically approved.

Usage of mills, lathes, or Prototraks will require a Heavy Machining Work Permit, which also requires you to submit your fully defined engineering drawing to for approval by shop staff. Approval of heavy work permits can be seen via this spreadsheet.
