Let’s dive in and discover how to execute the techniques you’ve learned safely and effectively with our Say Mak 50kg hammer.

Casting & Mold Making
Casting metal is a 6,000-year-old process still used in manufacturing and fine art. The founder melts metal (usually aluminum, bronze, or cast iron) in a crucible, pours it into a mold, then removes the mold material or the casting once the metal has cooled and solidified.

Ceramics & Pottery
Pottery is the process and the products of forming vessels and other objects with clay and other raw materials, which are fired at high temperatures to give them a hard and durable form.

CNC Router
A computer numerical control (CNC) router is a computer-controlled cutting machine which typically mounts a hand-held router as a spindle which is used for cutting various materials, such as wood, composites, metals, plastics, glass, and foams.

Kiln Firing Badge
A ceramic kiln is a furnace used for firing clay and other ceramic materials at high temperatures to harden and vitrify them, transforming them into durable, finished products such as pottery, tiles, and sculptures. Kilns are essential tools in ceramics and pottery studios, providing controlled heat environments for the firing process.

Metalshop / MIG Welding
This badge provides access to all of the necessary equipment and tools for welding. Embark on the exciting journey of creating with metal. Get hands-on training on the many tools required for cutting, bending, shaping, grinding, drilling, and welding steel in the MAKE metal shop.

Oxy/Acetylene
The Oxy/Acetylene torch can be used to weld, cut, bend, and heat metal alloys.

Plasma Cutting
Plasma cutting is a process that cuts through electrically conductive materials by means of an accelerated jet of hot plasma. Typical materials cut with a plasma torch include steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass and copper, although other conductive metals may be cut as well.
