This course will introduce students to machining procedures beyond the basic operations. The student should have previously acquired basic machining knowledge and skills. Lathe procedures will include threading and cutting tapers. Milling operations will include the offset boring head, and broaching. Precision grinding of parallel and angular surfaces using gauge blocks and a sine bar will be introduced. Students will study the process and perform hands on operations. Group 2 course.
