I’m new. I need help

I need certification on wood shop stuff. I am attempting to send a private message to @shoottx but can’t figure this forum stuff out very quickly. So I resorted to this. Happy to pay. Sooner the better.

A person has to be a member (or family member) before they can use the tools. This may only apply to the power tools, but that’s what the wood shop classes cover.

Anyone can take a class and anyone over 18 can use the tools as long as they’re under the supervision of a trained and authorized member.

Wait really? When I joined I was told I couldn’t have someone come in and help me with a project in woodshop unless they were also a trained member. Like, they could watch over my shoulder but not the other way around. Same for car things in auto.

@ladysandry what you heard was true. The exception is for classes and under supervision of a teacher.

I suspect they could hold boards for you, provide consulting, and help you clean up but they can’t touch the tools. Except during a DMS-sponsored/taught class - per rule 3.

Yeah that’s what I thought. This was the confusing part to me. If this refers to classes, why would a non member be able to take a safety sign off class?

I agree with you. Most safety sign off classes are restricted to members only.

I could make a case that a nonmember might take a class in anticipation of becoming a member, but that doesn’t seem fair to members who are already paying their dues and can’t get into the class.

Do you still have a couple slots available for Sunday Afternoon?

I’ll be there early but need to know if I should bring anything other than the fee.
