Metal: Manual Mill & Advanced Lathe
Saturday, April 7, 2018 at 9:00 AM
Class #11236, Course #283
This will cover some advanced metal lathe techniques – things like power feeding, single point threading, and working with different types of metal. In addition, it will cover the manual mill including: milling bits, work holding, speeds and feeds, basic DRO usage, and machine operation. This will be a 3 hour-ish lecture (9am-12pm) followed by an individual project. The “Metal – Working with the Lathe” course is a pre-requisite. The project is optional for people with previous experience on a metal milling machine – talk to the instructor. The materials and tools required for the project is supplied, although an investment of $20-$100 in your own cutting bits will be required over time as you work on your own projects. Minimum 8 students must be registered to hold the class. Maximum of 20 may attend.
