INSIDE MACHINISTS are skilled in operating the different machines and tools used in a typical machine shop. They learn to read precision instruments such as micrometers, calipers, and indicators. The inside machine shop equipment includes: lathes, drill presses, shapers, milling machines, grinding machines, boring mills, and portable tools used on a bench or floor area. The inside machinist is taught the basic principles of each machine and masters the techniques for cutting tools, adjustments, measurements, speeds, feeds and how to apply them in each process. In addition, the inside machinist will learn how to operate a computer numerical control machine known as the CNC machine.
