Equipment Training

On the 2nd Monday of each month from 5pm-8:50pm The Villages Gem and Mineral Society will have “New Member Machine Orientation”. During this time we will demonstrate the set up, operation, and tear down of the trim saw, dop pot, edge grinder, and CabKing. This is an essential training for all new members who will be expected on the following Thursday to bring their notes and copy of procedures for their hands-on instruction with a trainer.

Although REQUIRED for new members, this is an excellent opportunity for other members who may be feeling ‘rusty’ after some time away or just want a refresher on specific equipment.
