Basic Machine Technology 10-Part Series

This 10-part training series will facilitate a basic understanding of the different tools commonly used in a machine shop. The series is designed to teach students how to identify the tools, the components, and how each is used for a particular job. While the entire series is designed to train the new machinist, the individual courses also offer experienced machinists the opportunity to review basic information on various tools such as milling machines, drill presses, band saws, grinders, and precision instruments.

The Basic Machine Technology series is designed for student machinists who have no prior experience using the different tools in a workshop. It does not assume any previous knowledge of machine shop protocol. All the terms used are defined or explained in the courses.
