The machine shop was created in the early 1960's by the Physics department. Its 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 at 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 Tracy Lynch and Mark Lanier.
