Many times, when we are making a project, our attempts at holding parts to the accuracy we would like, we find it difficult to do. Also, sometimes we need to do a very small job with precession, but find that making the jigs to accomplish that task takes much more time than doing the small job. Learning to use the mill and engine lathe can help with these situations and many more. Learning to use the mill and engine lathe can be a great accessory in your skills to becoming a better woodworker. During the week, Michael will discuss cutter selection, measuring tolerances, jigs and fixtures, how to sharpen drill bits, what to look for when buying an engine lathe, mounting chucks, reaming, knurling on the lathe, squaring stock and much more.
