Central to the shops activities are the South Bend Lathe and the Bridgeport Knee Mill. We also have Rockwell and Powermatic band saws, Baldor Grinders and Rockwell Belt Grinder/Sander. Just added to are equipment are various pneumatic hand tools. Stop by for a short tour and give us feedback on what tools and materials you would like access too.

Recycle Through Re-use:

As many of you have found out old equipment is useful for parts or can be recycled by reuse. If you have equipment going off inventory let the DRC know, we might have a use for it.
