Taking the basic metal class

Earlier today I went to the techshop to continue playing with metals. Last week, I learned how to operate a Tormach CNC milling machine. This time, however, I dived into simpler and more manual machines around the shop. I played with a lot of similar machines while growing up and working in my dad's factory in Cairo, but it was a great refresher nonetheless. Needless to say, the machines I worked with are way waaay safer than their counterparts in Egypt that I used to operate.

The teacher came in late, however, and we had a lot less time than we typically would. Here's what was supposed to be a bottle opener. It's cut from 1/8" steel but the cut was very rough, to say the least.
