Make a cast iron tool. In this class we will start with iron castings and turn them into precision tools. Start by machining a 6" precision camel back straight edge and continue with angle blocks or small surface plates. 

See the instructor website to see the projects that can be completed in this class. Camel back straight edges are used as a reference for measuring the accuracy of machine and woodworking tools. The 6" Camel back Straight edge is 6" long and 1-1/2" wide and the straight edge surface can be made as accurate as the student wants. The 6" straight edge is included in the student material cost. Angle blocks range in size from 2" to 6" and are very useful for fixturing or checking anything where you need a true 90 degree angle. The surface plate is used for accurate measurement or as a really flat surface for lapping or as a baking plate for sandpaper for precise sanding or for sharpening of woodworking tools.
