MCHN1338 Basic Machining While the use of trig formulas, gear ratio calculation and conversion of between/among decimal inch, fractional inch and metric dimensions are an integral part of the trade, in this class these concepts are embedded and contextualized by extensive application in many “hands on” activities which stress both safety and the production of useful traditional apprentice machinist’s projects such as parallel jaw clamps, prick and center punches, and pump shafts or “wigglers.”  Supporting activities such as print reading, lay-out, tool grinding, and precision “set-up” are stressed.  This class emphasizes the safe and efficient operation of traditional manual machines, for the low-volume production or modification/repair of items with minimal “attachments” or special tooling, that is traditional “craft” machining.
