This class covers advanced fixturing and machining techniques for the purposes of making more complex, or multiple parts on both a mill and a lathe. It will cover correct implementation of everything from purpose-made, precision fixturing equipment to double stick tape.
By the end of the class, students will be able to make parts that are more complex, quickly and precisely. They will also have a good working knowledge of fixturing tools and proper methods and times to apply them.
Successful completion of Manual Machining and Layout, Manual Machining Tool Training, the Manual Machining Weekend Workshop, or permission of the instructor.
All practice materials will be provided by Artisan's Asylum.
