In this 4 Sunday long introductory course, students will learn about the safe and proper operation of a metal cutting lathe. We will learn in depth about materials, the basics of work holding, tooling, and students will have an opportunity to try their hands at turning, facing, drilling, and countersinking operations.
During each weekly session we will explore different, exciting topics and expand on knowledge we previously acquired.
Speeds and feeds, metrology, thread cutting, taper turning, reaming, shaft fit tolerances, and understanding part design and its relationship to order of operations. As well as the use of insertable cutters, tool holders, tapping basics, collets, chucks, mounting of work pieces, basic cutter tool sharpening, and other tooling will be discussed or demonstrated.
