While building a nut and preparing a threaded rod you will gain experience with our lathe and mill. You will also practice layout, facing with the mill, drilling, taping, adjusting a four jaw chuck, using the cut off saw, and filing a chamfer.
This class is suitable both as a beginning class and for those who are fairly new to the shop and wish to gain experience.
You will not only get a chance to gain confidence in using our shop tools, but have a lovely square nut that spins freely on your threaded rod demonstrating your proficiency with threading.
Teacher Bio: Peter Moseley is a retired mechanical engineer and manufacturing manager who’s shop experience includes making operating live steam 2.5”/foot scale narrow gauge model locomotives along with an associated outdoor railroad.
