Machine Shop Practice. Trade and Industrial Education Course of Study.
Emerly, Robert J.; And Others
Designed for secondary school students who are interested in becoming machinists, this beginning course guide in machine shop practice is organized into the following sections: (1) Introduction, (2) instructional plan, (3) educational philosophy, (4) specific course objectives, (5) course outline, (6) job sheets, and (7) operation sheets. The course outline calls for 470 hours of applicatory jobs to be completed by students; 35 hours of skill development lessons and 35 hours of information lessons are to be presented by the instructor. For each of the 73 applicatory jobs, a job sheet is included that tells the student what to do in performing the job. The job sheet contains a photograph and scale drawing of the tool, equipment list, list of tools needed, safety precautions, and procedures. Operation sheets supplement the job sheets and tell the student how to perform the operations necessary to complete the assigned jobs. Keyed to the skill development lessons, each operation sheet lists the tools and equipment, and procedure for a specific operation, along with an introductory explanation. The eight units covered are: Lathe operation, power saw operation, bench work, milling machine operation, shaper operation, drilling machine operation, surface grinder operation, and heat treatment. Suggested information lesson titles are listed, but information sheets and assignment sheets are to be prepared by the instructor. (Author/RG)
