Machining 101 – Measuring and Layout
In this class, Billy will go over the basics of metrology and layout. This lecture and hands on lab will include machinist ‘speak’, accurate measuring, and project layout. Students will learn the basics of how to read and use micrometers, calipers, gauge blocks, angle blocks, sin bars, height gauges, dial test indicators and more to inspect, measure and layout their work.
