Our brand new 3000 square foot facility is located on the ground floor of the new Math and Science Center. It is located at 400 Dowman Drive, just next to the B. Jones Building. We are on the first floor in room W101.

We offer Milling,Turning and Grinding on manual machines in addition to a Computer Controlled Machining Center (CNC) for multiple and complex parts.

We have the capabilities to weld most common materials, such as stainless, aluminum, and steel. We offer several different types of joining such as MIG, TIG, stick, spot, Oxy-Acetylene, soft soldering, and brazing. Plasma and Oxy-Acetylene cutting are available. Vacuum tight welds and seals are accommodated for most any project.

Sorry we do not make "House Calls."


We perform services on various optical instrumentation such as microscope stage modifications and even telescope repair.

We even maintain Emory Observatory
Emory Observatory research


We also provide a variety of other services such as heat treatment for hardening and annealing of metals, painting, minor woodworking and even Helium Leak Detection on vacuum systems.

The Emory Astronomy Club is currently building their own 8 inch Dobsonian telescope. (Coming soon!)

Appointments are appreciated and preferred!
