Prerequisite - Fundamentals of Fabrication, Machine Tool I & II, Machine Tool III: Milling, and Turning Operations I: Turning Between Centers.

This intermediate level machining course explains the operation of the manual lathe in regards to inside and outside machining practices. This will include: turning safety, lathe controls, single-point threading, tapping, fits and tolerances, measurement, process control, tooling and lathe set-up. Proper set-up and use of a four-jaw chuck will be demonstrated and explained. Many lathe operations use tooling with carbide inserts, but a machinist must know the proper technique for grinding the surfaces of a solid carbide lathe tool and applying the proper rake angles. Tool grinding is discussed and demonstrated. The students will create a NIMS Chucking project and take an online quiz to earn their NIMS credential for Chucking.
