Introduces the student to the changing era of machining technology, emphasizing terminology, referencing and applications related to manufacturing environments. The fundamental use of bench tools, layout procedures, materials, precision measuring tools, machining processes, drilling and cut-off machines and other machining/manufacturing processes will be stressed. Skill competencies and standards will be identified.
Students will perform basic lathe operations, which will consist of facing, center-drilling, chuck turning, turning between centers, boring, grooving, tapers, knurling, and single point threading.
Teaches students to identify the major parts of the vertical mill, align a vise, use an indicator, edge finder, and boring head, determine speeds and feeds perform simple indexing, mill flat, square surfaces and slots, drill, bore, and tap holes.
Covers computer numerical control (CNC) lathe and mill operations, control functions, the letter address system, the program format, and machine setup. G & M codes, control functions, the letter address system, and math issues related to CNC are included.

General desription of class goals. Guided tour of the manual shop equipment. Teach machine shop concepts. Provide stepping stone to C.N.C. machining. Careers in the machine tool technology.
This unit provides a summary of common sense safety guidelines for individuals, worksites, jobs, tools and tool use. It also provides general information on risk assessment, protective measures and equipment as well as basic first aid.
This unit provides the student with an overview of general shop terms, conventions and nomenclature used in metal and machine shops. Detailed information about specific machine or welding tools are given more comprehensive attention in tool-specific lessons.
Interpreting technical drawings and specifications; basic knowledge of blueprint reading, general and precision measuring.
This unit includes the descriptions and use of the different machine types used in a machine tool lab.
This unit introduces students to the many cutting tools used for machine processes such as, milling, drilling, lathe operations, and finishing processes. The unit will also include materials cutting tools are made from and the different cutting speeds used for a machine tool.
This unit will provide opportunities for students to acquire introductory skills on the lathe machine. Course topics include safety, blueprint reading, job planning and management, quality control, and machinery maintenance. Performance standards for this unit may be based on National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) national standards for the topics of the lathe. Co-curricular activities of Skills USA may be incorporated in the unit.
