1st Period Winners
1st Period Winners
Forty-four students in Mr. Jeff Hinshaw's first-year machining class participated in a local lathe competition. The task for each student included machining a part to print and holding the closest tolerance.
Each student machined six different dimensions and operations on a part. Students had to read the print, decide on the operation they should use to machine the part, and finally, decide on what order to machine the part. Students used precision measuring tools to take each measurement and match to meet print dimensions. Students then totaled all dimensions to calculate their total score for the part.
Winners were as follows:
