Using the Micro Lathe for the Beginner WS-117

Using the Micro Lathe for the Beginner WS-117
The NAWCC’s School of Horology has partnered with Sherline Products, Inc. to offer an introductory workshop on the use of the micro lathe held at Sherline factory in Vista, CA. Participants will learn the basic skills and techniques involved in the use of the micro lathe. This is a hands-on workshop open to all interested individuals. Although the class will focus on horological techniques, other subjects will be covered. Machining procedures covered in this course are the same ones used by manufacturers to manufacture watch and clock parts. Sherline will provide supplies and machinery.



The topics covered will include:
  • Modern lathe characteristics
  • Machinable metals
  • Use of measuring tools
  • Setting up lathe tools
  • Turning
  • Boring and drilling
  • Screw cutting
  • Repivoting


There will be an optional tour of the Craftsmanship Museum on Friday, November 15th led by Jerry. Those who are interested should plan to meet at the museum around 5pm.
