faculty shop at Purdue is maintained and supervised
by Jim Corwin. Jim teaches a shop course to
Physics graduate students that provide the basic

Access to the shop is controlled
by a computer monitored swipe card lock. Once
the basic safety course has been passed, student
IDs are programmed into the computer, allowing
them access to the shop and its equipment.
The faculty shop has a variety
of mills, lathes, drill presses and saws capable
of producing prototype parts for research and
teaching. The shop is also equipped with a well
stocked tool room that finds extensive use by
graduate students throughout the department.
