The students of this class have now learned the basics of vernier and micrometer measurement. We have moved forward with shop safety,tools and lathe operation. As of Teusday of this week they have learned and how to use the engine lathe to face and put a centre hole in a piece of metal. Next weeks agenda includes machining the length of a shaft in the lathe from a one inch diameter to three quarter of an inch. Progress is coming along great. SAFETY is our biggest concern.
