WARNING: Machine tools present a safety hazard. Improper operation can result in severe injury. These topics are for non-laboratory study only and are not to be used in conjunction with the operation of any tool or machine described herein. Never use a machine tool without the supervision of a qualified instructor.
Metals are the primary materials fabricated in the machine shop and will be the material of focus in this topic. The science of metal*s chemistry and its physical engineering is called metal*lurgy. The practitioner of this science is known as a metal*lurgist. The machinist, not being a metal*lurgist, still needs to know a good deal about this science if they are going to fabricate these metal*s. Therefore, this topic, combined with few others will provide the metal*lurgical basics for the machinist.
