The Hay Springs ITE department has received a new toy…I mean tool! This Pirahna CNC router has a 12″x24″ bed and is capable of 2D and 3D carving/engraving. It also has an optional laser engraver that we are trying to conquer as we speak. For now we are in the fledgling stages, but the students are enthused about the options and added value it can bring. More importantly, this machine will be a great asset for students to become career and/or college ready. The need for skilled technical workers remains high and these employers are offering some of the highest paid entry level salaries in the workforce.
For now we are learning, and here are some early examples of whats going on. Feel free to contact the Shop class if you are interested in us making you something. Signage, anniversary/wedding gifts, plaques, verses or sayings, house numbers or family names are just some of the possibilities. Remember we can only do projects that measure 12×24 inches or less and we can customize shapes and finish to your liking. Markups will be moderate, and any profits will go back into improvements for the Hay Springs ITE department. Let the creative juices flow!
