Over the last couple of days, a couple of students have been trained on using our new mill. We bought the mill over the summer but just recently started using it to fabricate our chassis. With the help of a few of our mentors who have been trained on using them, we were able to complete our first west coast drive chassis. We milled out the holes that the gearbox uses to attach, as well as the holes for the axels for the wheels. It took us a little under 2 days to complete the first chassis. We’re excited for how this will help us during the season.
