Garage (Max Lab)

The CCRMA Garage is the advanced/dangerous part of the Max Lab. Safety Practices are the most important aspect of the Garage and the Garage is the most important place for the Max Lab’s Safety Practices. Also see the general Stanford-wide Health and Safety Policy. Most Garage activities should not be performed alone.

If you don’t know how to use a tool, please ask for help.

If it doesn’t feel safe, stop doing it. Ask for help.

The garage is normally locked and most CCRMA users do not have access. Talk to Romain or Matt if you are interested in using the space and/or any of the equipment listed below.

Big Power Tools | NEVER USE ALONE

Epilog Helix 40 Watt laser cutter (and associated filters, cuttable plywood and acryllic…). Laser cutting any plastic other than acryllic can release lethal chlorine gas.

Rockwell drill press. Materials not properly clamped can spin and fly.

Palmgren 10" Metal/Wood Cutting Band Saw. Note that there are different blades for metal versus wood; see manual; the bin labeled “band saw” contains whichever blade is not currently in use.

CNC Baron XL - CNC milling machine, with accompanying mac mini and drawers of accessories (drill bits, collets, mills, caps, dies, calipers…) Extremely dangerous and finicky. Don’t be the next Michele Dufault.

Porter Cable air compressor with Porter Cable model BN200SB nail gun, Porter Cable model US58 “upholstery stapler”, Porter Cable model TS056 staple gun.

Saw Stop table saw. Just because the capacitive sensor prevents the machine from directly cutting you doesn’t make you safe from materials that can be propelled into your body with improper usage.

Miller Millermatic 211 MIG welder. Extreme fire hazard.
