Induction will require a set of two chopping boards. These are easy to obtain and have known dimensions. IKEA has some fairly cheap ones that come in 2packs (one could be used for training, the other one for the inductee to work on to show understanding). This is ideal because it means we know what the raw stock is going to look like every time and we know where it is safe to put clamping points and datum locations; should lead to a smooth induction process.

It is expected that the inductee will have some experience with CNC Routing/Milling on the small CNC Mill prior to operating the SE-CNC-1 Mill.
