  1. Tool Training: Manual Milling Machine MARCH/APRIL
    Event on 2014-03-05 19:15:00

    The manual mills in the Asylum machine shop are amazingly versatile tools- they can be used to create precisely dimensioned parts out of aluminum, steel, or plastic, cut sheets of metal to size, or miter tubes for welding. This class will teach you how to setup a bridgeport-style mill for precision machining, how to securely hold a part, how to precisely measure distances down to one-thousandth of an inch, and how to make facing cuts and drill holes using a wide variety of mill bits and accessories.

    Successful completion of this course will qualify students to use the Artisan's Asylum Bridgeport mills independently as member.

    This short class will not, however, offer students the opportunity to become expert in the operation of this tool — that requires applying these techniques to a project over many hours, whether independently or in a longer form class. This training will simply give the student the information they need in order to operate the tool without harming the machine, themselves, or the people around them. It also serves as a good refresher for those who've become rusty after years away from the mill.

    Class Goals:

    Students will learn to:

    • Move the mill table accurately along x, y, and z axes
    • Change mill spindle speeds for different tasks and materials
    • "True" the mill table using a dial indicator
    • Attach a vise to the mill table, and identify the uses of different fixturing accessories.
    • Securely clamp a small aluminum block.
    • Identify a variety of mill bits and their uses.
    • "Face", or cut a side of, an aluminum block to achieve a precise dimension and smooth finish.
    • Find the edge of a clamped workpiece, and drill a hole a precise distance from the edge.
    • Clean and maintain the mill.


    Students must be at least 18 years old.

    Materials Provided:

    Aluminum block: . Bring some cash, or bring a 1"-ish X 1"-ish X 2"-ish aluminum scrap piece

    What to Bring:

    Hair ties for long hair, closed-toed shoes, long-sleeve shirt.

    Instructor Biography:

    Danaan Metge is a mechanical engineer with extensive prototyping experience. His experience with a mill, lathe, welder, and 3D printer was gleaned from work fabricating parts for an electric self-balancing motorcycle and an off-road gas-powered skateboard with a small company in Somerville, and also from designing and building his own bicycle frame and guitar amplifier.

    Event Time:

    Manual Mill Tool Trainings run every other Wednesday evening from 7:15pm to 9:15pm.

    REFUNDS:We offer full refunds for any class cancellations more than three days in advance of the class start date.

    Back ToCurrent Exhibitions
    Wade Guyton '26 avril – 7 juin 2008'

    March 15, 2014 – April 19, 2014
    Opening on March 15, 2014 from 6 to 9 pm.

    For his second solo show at Galerie Chantal Crousel, Wade Guyton returns to his exhibition six years ago. Using the same digital file to make ten black paintings in 2008, he makes ten more. The printer is an Epson 9900, the model that replaced the Epson 9600. The ink is now UltraChrome with Vivid Magenta Technology.

    "This time its 10.7.51. Its in the cloud, but it's also in the floor and the walls. After all, that exhibition is embedded in the building, formed by the gallery contours. Time turned material. More metamorphic than sedimentary. The density has increased. Condensed into a single work. The noise is louder. The floor is covered with plywood again and painted, bringing the feeling back to our feet again.

    This is what we said last time:
    For his first solo show at Chantal Crousel Gallery, Wade Guyton presents a new series of paintings that are ostensibly black monochromes. Made with an Epson large-format printer in the same manner as the paintings he has been producing for the last three years, these works are printed on factory-primed linen intended for oil painting and not inkjet printing. Recently, the artist noticed that some of the linen he received from the factory reacted differently to the inkjet printer than those he had previously. The marks, images, and letters he was printing became absorbed into the porous surface rather than sitting on the surface. These paintings were set aside as failed works and these new rolls of linen as unusable material. Because of this difference in the inks interaction with the surface, the artist began to overprint these paintings with a Photoshop-drawn rectangle filled with the colour black. By repetitively overprinting, an unexpected painterly process developed. The artist proceeded to use the blank defective material in the same way printing the same file over and over. As each painting is made, it transcribes a visual record of the printers actions: the trace of movement of the print heads, the varying states of their clogged-ness, the track marks of the wheels on wet ink all mixed with the scratches and smears on the paintings from being dragged across the floor to be fed back into the printer again. This show is the second iteration of the installation of the monochromes and the black plywood floor, the first instance being at Friedrich Petzel Gallery in New York in November 2007."
    – Wade Guyton

    A catalogue with essays by Catherine Chevalier and John Kelsey will be published on the occasion of this Exhibition.

    Wade Guyton was born in 1972 in Hammond, Indiana. He lives and works in New York. His last solo exhibitions took place at Kunsthale Zurich (2013) and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2012). In 2013, he participated in the following shows : Carnegie International 2013, Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh (USA), Il Palazzo Enciclopedico, La Biennale di Venezia, Venice (Italy), Lies about painting, Moderna Museet Malm (Sweden). He often collaborates with other artists, a recent example of this is with Kelley Walker in 2013 for the exhibition Wade Guyton, GuytonWalker, Kelley Walker at Kunsthaus Bregenz (Austria). His work will be presented in Prima Materia at the Punta della Dogana, Fondation Franois Pinault, Venice, from April 13 to December 31, 2014.

    15 mars – 19 avril 2014
    Vernissage le samedi 15 mars 2014 de 18h00 21h00

    Pour sa deuxime exposition personnelle la galerie Chantal Crousel, Wade Guyton revient la prcdente prsentation dil y a six ans. Reprenant le fichier numrique utilis pour les dix peintures noires de 2008, il en cre dix nouvelles. Limprimante est maintenant une Epson 9900, le modle qui remplace la Epson 9600. Lencre est lUltraChrome avec la technologie Vivid Magenta.

    Cette fois, on est dans le 10.7.51, qui est dans le cloud, mais aussi dans le sol et les murs. Aprs tout, cette exposition est intgre au btiment, forme par les contours de la galerie. Le temps devenu matriel. Plus mtamorphique que sdimentaire. La densit a augment. Condense en une seule oeuvre. Le bruit est plus fort. Le sol est nouveau recouvert de contreplaqu et peint, ravivant cette sensation ancienne sous nos pieds.

    Voici ce qui avait t crit en 2008 :
    Pour sa premire exposition personnelle la galerie Chantal Crousel, Wade Guyton propose une nouvelle srie de peintures qui se prsentent premire vue comme des monochromes noirs. Raliss avec une imprimante Epson de grand format, linstar des peintures quil a produites ces trois dernires annes, ces travaux sont imprims sur une toile de lin industrielle prpare, un support traditionnellement utilis pour la peinture lhuile, et non pour limpression jet dencre. Rcemment, lartiste a remarqu que certains rouleaux de lin quil venait dacqurir, a priori identiques, ne ragissaient pas de la mme manire que par le pass ; les marques, images et les lettres quil imprime habituellement sont absorbes par la toile poreuse au lieu de se fixer sur sa surface, comme ctait le cas dans ses prcdentes oeuvres. Ces nouvelles peintures sont mises de ct, et considres comme rates, de mme que la toile de lin est juge inutilisable. Conscient de cette nouvelle interaction entre lencre et la surface, Wade Guyton commence rimprimer ces peintures avec un rectangle trac sur Photoshop rempli de couleur noire. La rptition de ces surimpressions engendre un processus pictural inattendu. Lartiste continue utiliser cette toile vierge dfectueuse quil imprime et rimprime avec le mme fichier. Chaque peinture ralise traduit visuellement les actions de limprimante : la trace du mouvement des ttes de limprimante, leurs tats dencrassement, les traces des roues sur lencre humide. Ces diffrentes marques et empreintes se retrouvent mles aux raflures et salissures que subissent les toiles lorsquelles sont tranes au sol pour tre rintroduites dans limprimante. Cette exposition constitue la seconde occurrence de linstallation des monochromes et du sol en contreplaqu noir, la premire prsentation ayant eu lieu la galerie Friedrich Petzel New York en novembre 2007.

Bench Press

Bench press is much easier to ridicule than to sing. Among his many sins, a leader in the number of injuries of shoulder joints. If you is not enough, try to find a real use of such a movement in daily life or sport. Yes, probably, wrestlers or football players can push the opponent in front of ...
