  • A = Lever length of wrench

  • B = Lever length of wrench

  • plus extension

  • Te = Required torque on bolt

  • Tw = Torque reading on

Non cutting hand tools28 l.jpg
Non-Cutting Hand Tools

  • Use of Machinist Vise

1. Open jaws (1) of vise wide enough to allow you to insert the object you want to clamp.

CAUTION

Use brass or copper caps on vise jaws to protect soft material when clamping.

CAUTION

Do not strike vise with a heavy object or try to hold large work in a small vise.

www.spacetec.org


Non cutting hand tools29 l.jpg

Use of Machinist Vise

Non-Cutting Hand Tools

2. Insert object (2) to be clamped between vise jaws and tighten handle (3).

3. Work should be held firmly in place, but the jaws should not be so tight that they mar the finish. A piece of rawhide or leather may be used to protect highly polished surfaces:

NOTE

When holding hard material in vise jaws

tightened by hand, give the vise handle a

sharp rap for final tightening.

Non-Cutting Hand Tools

  • Soldering Iron Preparation

    • Place the soldering iron in its stand and plug in.The iron will take a few minutes to reach its operating temperature of about 400°C.

    • Dampen the sponge in the stand.The best way to do this is to lift it out the stand and hold it under a cold tap for a moment, then squeeze to remove excess water. It should be damp, not dripping wet.

    • Wait a few minutes for the soldering iron to warm up.You can check if it is ready by trying to melt a little solder on the tip.

    • Wipe the tip of the iron on the damp sponge.This will clean the tip.

    • Melt a little solder on the tip of the iron.This is called 'tinning' and it will help the heat to flow from the iron's tip to the joint. It only needs to be done when you plug in the iron, and occasionally while soldering if you need to wipe the tip clean on the sponge.

www.spacetec.org


Non cutting hand tools31 l.jpg
Non-Cutting Hand Tools

  • Soldering Iron Use

    • Hold the soldering iron like a pen, near the base of the handle.Imagine you are going to write your name! Remember to never touch the hot element or tip.

    • Touch the soldering iron onto the joint to be made.Make sure it touches the joint. Hold the tip there for a few seconds and...

    • Feed a little solder onto the joint.It should flow smoothly. Apply the solder to the joint, not the iron.

    • Remove the solder, then the iron, while keeping the joint still.Allow the joint a few seconds to cool before you move the joint

    • Inspect the joint closely.

www.spacetec.org


Rivet measurement73 l.jpg
Rivet Measurement turns

Answer

  • The total thickness is ½ inch or (16/32) plus we need the rivet to protrude 1 ½ diameter so we can buck or drive it.

  • Therefore the total length of the rivet must be 1/8 X 1.5=.1875 or 3/16 (6/32).

  • 6/32 + 16/32 = 22/32.

  • The rivet would be an AN426AD-4-11

  • Multiplication of Decimals – Answer:

    • 9.45 X 100 = 945

    • 9.45 X 20 = 189

    • 945 + 189 = 1134

    • 2.13 X .200 = .426

    • 2.13 X .003 = .00639

    • .426 + .00639 = .43239

  • Expressing a decimals as a percentage

    • .90 as a percent

    • Move the decimal two places to the right

    • Affix the percent symbol to the right after dropping the decimal point

    • .90 – 90. – 90%

  • Expressing a percent as a decimal

    • Keeping in mind that a percent is simply a decimal with the decimal point moved two places to the right, all that is necessary to express a percent as a decimal is to move the decimal point two places to the left

  • Gearing

    • Used to transmit power between shafts rotating usually at different speeds

      • Two main types

        • Spur gears – the larger

        • Pinion gears – the smaller

          Pinion to Spur gear ratio:

          # of teeth on spur gear / # of teeth on pinion gear

          Ex: 150-tooth spur; 30-tooth pinion:

          150/30 = 5 or 5 to 1; also expressed as a ratio, i.e. 5 : 1

    • Hold frame in palm of hand with little finger or third finger inside the frame

    • Tighten around object until ratchet clicks

    • Micrometers with Vernier scale allow you to read the fraction of the division on the barrel scale

    • One revolution of micrometer is 0.025

  • Vernier Caliper:

    • The main scale is divided in inches.

      • Each inch is divided into 40 parts, like the sleeve on the micrometer

      • Each division is equal to 0.025 inch

    • A movable jaw that matches the fixed jaw slides along the main scale bar

      • Contains 25 divisions that equal 24 divisions on the main scale

  • How to read a Vernier Caliper:

    • Read the nearest number located on the main scale (in inches) and add to that the number of subdivisions.

      • Make sure to read from the zero on the movable jaw Vernier scale and not the jaw edge!

    • Scan down the movable jaw Vernier scale and select the number that matches up exactly with the main scale

    • Add this number to the numbers from the main scale

  • Ball gauges (Small Hole gauge)

    • Used to measure small holes up to ½ inch in diameter

    • Insert ball gauge into hole and tighten

    • Remove ball gauge and use a micrometer to determine size of hole by measuring 90 degrees to separation (spilt) on the ball gauge

    • Store with ball retracted (backed-off)

  • Tolerance

    • When a given dimension on a print shows the allowable variation, the plus (+) figure indicates the maximum and the minus (–) figure indicates minimum allowable variation. Also called the “the extreme permissible dimensions of the hole or part.

    • Example: Using .225 + .0025 - .005

    • The hole could be as large as .2275

      The hole could be as small as .2200
