This two day course is an introduction to the use of a Micro Mill. Procedures covered will center on the machining of horological watch and clock parts but can be utilized for any small part. Participants will learn the basic setup of a small mill and the utilization of commonly used and readily available tooling. Machining procedures covered in this course are the same as used by manufacturers to manufacture watch and clock parts
Topics covered will include
* Milling Machine Characteristics
* Milling Machine setup
* Selection of readily available tooling
* Precision Drilling, Boring and Milling
* Crossing and Skeletonizing
