Shop Safe?
Safety glasses on, hair tied back, no earbuds or headphones, no loose or dangly jewelry, shoulders, midriff, and back covered, sleeves rolled above the elbow, pants cover your knees, close toed shoes
Before Working in the Machine Shop:
Make sure you are shop safe Let mentor know you will be machining Have a GRT buddy within sight and hearing of you Turn on the vents
The Vault
Fasteners Machine replacement parts Non-metal materials
Cat Closet
Wood (Plywood, 2 by 4s, etc) Metal (Box beam, rods, sheet metal)
Yellow Cabinet
Flammable Liquids (Acetone, dykem, machining oil)
When do I use hearing protection?
Using chop saw or vertical bandsaw Cutting lots of stock on the horizontal bandsaw Cutting large sheet metal on shear Standing next to an air compressor
Put away tools Put away extra stock or the scrap/recycle bin Use a vacuum to clean up area (Don’t vacuum big chips) Sweep floor
How much should you measure?
Measure Twice, Cut Once
Measuring for different materials
For sheet metal, wood, or box beam: add extra ¼ inch to measurement For rod: add extra ⅛ inch to measurement For lathe parts: add extra ⅛ inch
Marking Tools:
Sharpies, scribes, dykem
(mark measurement by drawing line)
(scratch into metal to mark a line)
(flammable liquid that can be spread on metal to stain)
Measurement Tools:
Calipers, micrometers, tape measures, combination square
For tight tolerances, measures to nearest 0.001 or 0.0005 inch Measurements: inner diameter, outer diameter, step, depth Use procedure: wipe off jaws, zero calipers, use the wheel to change space between jaws and measure
For tight tolerances, measures to nearest 0.0001 to 0.001 inch Use procedure: place part between measuring faces, rotate spindle to tighten most of the way, then rotate ratchet press a few times to fully tighten, read measurement
Tape Measures
For wood, measures to nearest 1/16 to 1/8 inch Use procedure: pull out some of the measuring tape, line up the metal end and take the measurement, rewind the tape measure slowly so you don’t damage the metal tip
What Can Affect the Accuracy?
Condition of the tool Human error Temperature of the material Dirt and contamination
Use of chop saw
cut wood
Chop Saw Use procedure:
Put on hearing protection and offer to those near you Clamp down material on one side (before fully tightening, bring down blade to make sure it is lined up with the outside of your line) “Loud Noise” Open vents and make sure they are actually working With your right hand, press safety latch with thumb, use other fingers to pull main trigger, with your left hand, hold down the part where it is clamped just incase Lower saw and cut through material, then let go of trigger and wait for blade to stop
When finished with chop saw:
Close vent Remove wood pieces Don’t leave until the blade has stopped spinning Clean sawdust with wall vacuum
Drill Press Use:
drill wood, plastic, or metal
Don’t use drill press if...
you are drilling a hole more than half an inch in diameter into metal
Drill King is used for ___ holes, Drill Prince used for ___ ones
larger, smaller
Drill Press Use Procedure
Choose a drill bit by referencing the chart Put in the bit and use chuck key(on a chain connecting to machine) to tighten into the jaws, make sure bit is centered and remove chuck key after tightening If you aren’t using a vise, clamp scrap wood below your piece to protect the machine table Secure the piece you are trying to drill into with a clamp/vise, if it is a long pieces of material, make it extend to the left instead of the right Lower feed lever to line up piece (if using the Drill Prince, the laser alignment tool will help) Clamp the vice onto machine table Adjust the table height if needed with cranks at the far end of the table Turn the drill press on, change speed based on material when it is already on for the Drill King and Prince, for the Drill Princess, stop and unplug before changing speed Lower feed lever, keep at least one hand on the lever Peck at the material(drill a bit, pull up, repeat) Slowly turn the handle to lift the drill and turn off
When finished with drill press:
Put drill bit away Remove scrap pieces Use wall vacuum to clean scraps from table and floor
Arbor press use:
press things together
Arbor press use procedure:
Rotate lever counter-clockwise to lift the ram and clockwise to push down Lift lever and press down on your parts When done, move the lever so it is not hanging off the table
Rotex Punch Use:
Punch holes
Only use rotex punch on sheet metal ____ inch or less
Rotex Punch Use procedure:
Push top lever back with lots of force to change size on upper wheel Push bottom lever to rotate lower wheel to match the letter on the top wheel, make sure it clicks into place Hold material in place and use the big lever with the pool noodle to punch through Move the lever so it is over bench and clean scraps
Horizontal Bandsaw Use:
cut box beam and rod or bar stock
Horizontal Bandsaw Use procedure:
Clamp stock Turn feed knob to gently lower blade and check cutting position Use stand to hold long stock Before cutting, lift blade and apply oil along cut (you can also apply it to the inside of box beam) Turn on machine Use knob to make the blade lower slowly onto the stock and wait for it to make the cut, the machine will turn itself off
When finished with Horizontal bandsaw:
Wait before removing your part or extra stock because it could still be hot Return excess stock to inventory Use vacuum to clean chips
Vertical Bandsaws Uses:
Cut aluminum sheet metal and box beam for the metal vertical bandsaw and wood for the wood vertical bandsaw
Vertical Bandsaw Use procedure:
Put on hearing protection and offer it to people nearby if you are using the metal vertical bandsaw Open the vent Adjust blade guide to be ⅛ inch above your stock by loosening the knob towards the top of the machine and moving the blade guide Oil your piece if you are using the metal vertical bandsaw Turn the machine on “Loud Noise” Guide your stock into the blade with a miter guide, sacrificial wood, or fence, if you are cutting a lot of material, have someone support the part hanging off If you are using the wood vertical bandsaw, you can use the break to slow the blade when you are finished
When Finished with vertical bandsaw:
Turn machine off Close the vent Return hearing protection and extra stock Use the wall vacuum to clean scraps from the floor and if you used the metal vertical bandsaw, a rag to clean scraps from your piece and table
Sanders Uses:
Green sander is only for wood, white sander is for metal
___ sander can be used at a time
Sander use procedure:
Open the vent Turn sander on Move material to sander and move back and forth to not wear out only one part of the sander, if you are using a circular sander go on the left side of the wheel If you are making a curved corner, come in from the side instead of straight on to prevent damage to the sander
When finished with sander:
Turn sander off Use scrap wood or metal (depending on what sander you were using) and go back and forth to slow the wheel until it stops Close the vent
