This course will develop the theoretical and hands-on skills necessary to efficiently and productively operate all types of engine lathes. Students will begin with the basic skills and knowledge development of speeds, feeds, materials, cutting tools and basic turning techniques and will continue to refine their skills to include lathe tooling, facing, aligning lathe centers, turning, grooving/parting, cut radius/external tapers, knurling, boring internal tapers and internal/external threads. Students will progress from the basic manual lathes through the larger industrial DRO lathes and will polish their skills on turret lathe operation in preparation for CNC lathe programming and operation. Various lathe projects will strengthen the proper use of this equipment. This CE course mirrors credit MFG: 115.
