Saturdays, 10 AM to 2 PM

"Shop Time" is an opportunity for club members to use lapidary equipment as well as give informal classes; we gather to work and help each other learn.

Newcomers are welcome to visit during shop time for a tour to see what our club is all about.

If you have a specific interest, bring what you are interested in. Shop stewards and members can help you figure out what you will need. We will occasionally have guided classes, which will be announced in the monthly newsletter and by e-mail.

There is a $2.00 shop use fee per day for inside the building and a $5.00 shop use per day for using the equipment. In addition, there is a pro-rated fee for any use of the saws (15 cents an inch). Please sign in and pay when you arrive, and pay for the saw usage once everything is cut.

Fees and shop times subject to change without notice. Generally notifications are sent out via Club email list if there is a shop closure. Due to our members living in a variety of places on "the hill," shop hours are often cancelled for inclement (snowy/icy) weather.

  1. BE SAFE, use safety glasses and be careful around moving machinery.
  2. If you are not sure you are using the machinery properly -- ASK someone how to use it.
  3. Please use the entire surface on grinding wheels. This wears them down evenly and saves the Club money.
  4. If you used it, make sure it gets cleaned up.
Help others around you learn and have fun!
