This voluntary practical is based on the manufacture of a small oscillating air engine. The engine will consist of several parts, some of which will be supplied. You will be required to make the remaining parts and then assemble the engine. Manufacture will include turning, milling and drilling operations using workshop machine tools. Sessions for this activity take place in the Instrument Workshop (reached from the south-east corner of the DPO) and last from 9 am to 4 pm with an hour's break for lunch.
It is very much hoped that this session will go ahead at the end of the Michaelmas term, but is dependent on the completion of the Dyson Engineering Centre. Full details of where to sign up and dates for the sessions will be emailed out.
