Content Development (NOTES FOR FIRST LESSON/PERIOD ONE)

SUB-TOPIC 1: CARE OF FILES

  1. A file cuts the metal during the forward stroke; therefore pressure on the file should be released during the return stroke.
  2. A new file should be used for soft metals such as brass, zinc, or copper. It should not be used for filing welded joints or surface of casting.
  • A file must not be used without a handle because it is dangerous. Make sure the handle is firmly secured.
  1. The file should be cleaned regularly with a wire brush or file card to remove iron filing embedded in the teeth of the file and enable the file to cut better.
  2. Care on hacksaw.
  3. Ensure the jobs are rigidly clamped to the vice.
  4. The blade should be fixed so that the teeth are pointing away from the handle.
  • Tension the blade by the tensioning wing-nut making sure that the tension is right. Incorrect tension will lead to breakage of the blade.
  1. For solid copper or brass, use coarse blade about 14 to 18 teeth per 25mm for sheet metal and thin strip use teeth per 25mm.
  2. Use moderate speed in cutting, about 40 to 60 strokes per minute.
  3. Use as much length of the blade as possible.
  4. Care on Boring.
  5. With a bradawl, mark the position of the screw hole
  6. Select the proper size of drill bit
  • Countersink the shank hole for countersunk head or flat head screw by using correct countersink
