The machine shop was created in the early 1960's by the Physics department. Our primary function is to support Physics researchers with metal fabrication, welding, and to build unique lab instruments. We also provide services to all other departments within the university. Work for other departments is charged a nominal hourly rate. Those funds are used to purchase new machinery and equipment for the shop. Our most recent purchase is a 3 axis CNC Milling Machine that will give the shop new capabilities. The shop is staffed by Kurt Weihe and Tracy Lynch. Both are Master Toolmakers with a combined 75 years of experience in industry.
