Course DescriptionCovers setup, applications and operation of boring on the lathe. Introduces the commonly performed operation of boring on the various types of turning machines used to produce part features to print specifications. Prerequisites: MCH 100, 125, 180. Audit available.
Addendum to Course Description
Boring on the Lathe - Boring is the operation of enlarging and truing a drilled hole. A bored hole is always held to a closer tolerance than a drilled hole. It is also concentric with the center line of the work piece. Boring a second hole that is larger than the first but concentric with it, is called counterboring. A tapered hole can also be cut using a taper attachment. In this packet, you will learn how to bore and cut a tapered hole on the lathe.
Intended Outcomes for the course
The student will be able to turn safely and accurately an exercise piece to print specifications using the set-up methods and proper tools used for boring operations associated with the lathe machine.
