ATMT 1210 - Machine Theory-Benchwork, Drill Presses & Lathes

Credit Hours: 2.00


Prerequisites: None

Theory of linear and surface finish measurement as well as the proper use of the tools and instruments used in these areas. Also covered is the proper use and care of the hand tools used in such operations as scraping, filing, sawing, chipping, and layout procedures. Drill press and lathe operations and the tools and accessories used on each are studied in addition to screw threads and standard taper design.
