LESSON 1 MILLING MACHINE OPERATIONS TASK 1. Describe the setup, operation, and adjustment of the milling machine. CONDITIONS Within a self-study environment and given the subcourse text, without assistance. STANDARDS Within three hours REFERENCES No supplementary references are needed for this task. 1. Introduction Milling machines were first invented and developed by Eli Whitney to mass produce interchangeable musket parts. Although crude, these machines assisted man in maintaining accuracy and uniformity while duplicating parts that could not be manufactured with the use of a file. Development and improvements of the milling machine and components continued, which resulted in the manufacturing of heavier arbors and high speed steel and carbide cutters. These components allowed the operator to remove metal faster, and with more accuracy, than previous machines. Variations of milling machines were also developed to perform special milling operations. During this era, computerized machines have been developed to alleviate errors and provide better quality in the finished product. 1
