    Default Utah machine rebuilding and scraping class April 5-9, 2022

    We are in the planning stages to hold Richard King's rebuilding and scraping training course in Salt Lake City, Utah next year April 5-9, 2022. We would like to know if there is interest in this date. Please contact Richard directly via his website, handscraping.com for more details.

    Class Outline:

    The class is a five-day class. The first three days you will spend learning the art of scraping – first with a hand scraper and then with a Biax Power Scraper (Richard provides these to borrow for the class). You start out on a practice piece of cast iron (provided – they are returned to Richard so that he can use them in other classes) and once you are ready, you will start working on a project of your own. A typical project could be a straightedge, cross slide or saddle off of a lathe or mill, angle plate, cast iron surface plate, etc. The last two days of the class will give you time to work on your own project as well as some discussion and hands on experience with machine rebuilding.



    Basic scraping Class overview and some details (days 1-3):

    Hand scraping 15 – 20 PPI on cast iron on practice bar
    ½ moon oil flaking by hand
    Sharpening scraper blades
    Working with levels, test indicators and micrometers
    Power scraping, power flaking, personal projects, Rulon (Turcite) application
    Machine alignment (demo & use of Kingway tool), 3 point alignment (kinematic mount), lubrication
    Testing and scraping tapered gibs
    Q&A session on machine rebuilding & scraping
    Guidance on personal project(s), scraping to 40 PPI, straight edge scraping, pull scraping
    Discussion of lubrication and considerations
    Advanced sessions (days 4-5):

    More in-depth training on scraping and machine alignment
    Further work and personal instruction on your project or multiple projects
    Technique to achieve 40 points per square inch for straight edges, surface plates & jig borers
    Emphasis on machine alignment
    Application of Rulon (Turcite), scraping and cutting oil grooves
