It is very difficult for a class to get close enough to the metalwork lathe to see it properly during a classroom demonstration.

For this reason we shot this video in class today so that pupils can see the operations at close range in complete safety. Ideally if I had spare time I would add captions and break it up into far more manageable chunks but for the time being here is the demonstration in all its unedited glory.

All operations are, of course backed up with classroom notes. Pupils get the chance to try these exercises for themselves and they reflect upon their learning and deepen it through homework and the write up of a detailed sequence of operations.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
