Basic Engine Lathe: Straight Turning Work of Two Diameters
Basic Engine Lathe: Straight Turning Work of Two Diameters is part eight of the Basic Engine Lathe 14-part training series.
The course will show students how to straight turn a workpiece to two concentric diameters in a four-jaw independent chuck. Students will learn the correct procedures for taking both roughing and finishing cuts. Finally, students will learn the proper method of finishing one end of work to one diameter, reversing the work in the chuck, and finishing the other end to another diameter.
Course objectives include:
- Understand the necessary safety procedures for straight turning on the engine lathe
- Describe the procedures for making roughing cuts to two diameters on work held in a four-jaw independent chuck
- Explain the procedures for making finishing cuts to two diameters on work held in a four-jaw independent chuck.
