Manual Machining and Layout OCT/DEC 2016
Description: For students who want more than just an introduction to the Asylum's manual milling machines and lathe, this class will provide an extended background in practical machining theory and practice. By the end of the class, you'll be able to select appropriate materials for projects from robotics to coffee grinders, understand the theory behind complex operations like automotive cylinder boring, and most importantly, be comfortable creating parts and assemblies like axles, brackets, fixturing jigs, and motor supports. Class Goals: Students will learn the following operations on the mill and lathe: Mill Setup and true-ing of the mill and vise. Holding parts accurately in the vise. Clamping large, irregular parts directly to the mill table. "Facing" a part using a fly cutter. Cutting precise features using an endmill. Drilling precise, ordinately-dimensioned holes. Lathe Clamping round parts using a three-jaw vise. Clamping irregular parts using a 4-jaw vise. Turning operations on a cylindrical part. Facing operations on a raw part. Parting off of completed parts. Threading using the lathe. Drilling and tapping using the lathe. Other Introduction to material selection Introduction to machining theory Introduction to engineering design Prerequisites: No experience required. Students must be at least 18 years of age. Materials Provided: Aluminum and steel practice pieces: $5. Material can be purchased directly from the instructor. What to Bring: Hair ties for long hair, closed-toed shoes. Event Times: Session 1: Sunday, Oct. 30, 1:00-3pm Session 2: Sunday, Nov. 6, 1:00-3pm Session 3: Sunday, Nov. 13, 1:00-3pm Session 4: Sunday, Nov. 20, 1:00-3pm **No Class Sunday, Nov. 27th** Session 5: Sunday, Dec. 4, 1:00-3pm Session 6: Sunday, Dec. 11, 1:00-3pm Instructor Biography: Danaan Metge is a mechanical engineer with extensive prototyping experience.

Metalworking Intensive 101: Building with Metal! DEC 2016
Description: In this class, students will learn the basics of how to design and fabricate objects made out of steel. Students will work together to build items and structures for the shops. Students will participate in the construction and assembly of pieces all the way from raw materials to finished product, and learn skills including measuring, layout, manufacturing of jigs, cutting, and MIG welding. Each student will get time to practice using saws, MIG welders, and angle grinders over the course of the 5 evening session. This will be a good introduction to general structural steel construction techniques; each session will reinforce the skills learned in previous classes. When the class is over the class project will end up being used in the Asylum common spaces. Class Goals: A basic understanding of how to get material from industrial supliers. How to Read manufacturing drawings. Be comfortable setting up and using the following heavy duty tools: Angle grinder Abrasive Chop saw Cold Saw Drill Press Set up and operate a MIG welder Change an inert gas tank Change a spool of wire on a MIG welder Be comfortable using the following hand tools Wrench Hacksaw File Bench Vise Acorn table Broom Dustpan The following Layout tools will be used.
