Prerequisite – Ag Metal Working I
Class Focus: 9 – 12
In this course students will study the five basic machining operations drilling, turning, milling,
grinding and shaping. Students will learn precision measurement with micrometer and calipers. Student projects will be constructed mainly in the machine shop area using milling machines and lathes. Safety glasses required.
The student will:
1) List 10 Businesses in the Chippewa Valley that would employ a person with machining skills.
2) Identify and use metal hand tools to complete a bench work project.
3) Use a metal bandsaw to cut metal.
4) Safely set up and operate a metal lathe in the shop to complete a project.
5) Safely set up and operate a milling machine in the shop to complete a project.
6) Safely set up and operate a surface grinder in the shop to complete a project.
7) Read a micrometer and a Vernier caliper to 0.001.
8) Read and interpret drawings that are dimensioned in fractional inches and decimal inches.
9) Make basic project layout with layout tools.
10) Use mathematical formulas to perform lathe and milling operations.
11) Complete all projects to very close tolerances with great emphasize on quality of work.
