8 Manufacturing Steps for a V-Block V-Block Cut Sheet Cut the following pieces of metal 2” X 12” X 2” piece of aluminum ⅜” X ½” X 3 ½” piece of aluminum ½” X ⅝” X 2 ¼” piece of aluminum ½” diameter X 2” piece of aluminum ¼” diameter X 1 ¾” piece of aluminum Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 8

9 V-Block Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 9

10 Manufacturing Steps for a V-Block V-Block 1.Face all sides of the cube on the mill. 2.Mill a ⅛” (0.125”) wide slot ⅛” (0.125”) deep on one face of the cube. This slot is in the center of the face. Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 10

11 Manufacturing Steps for a V-Block 3.Turn the cube to the opposite face of the cube and mill a matching slot. Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 11

12 Manufacturing Steps for a V-Block 4.Turn the cube 90 degrees. The surface should be aligned with the side slots. Mill a groove in the face starting 0.312” from the edge. The groove should be 1.437” wide. Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 12

13 Manufacturing Steps for a V-Block 5.Begin milling step slots to form the “V” in the block. 6.Move in 0.062” on each side and 0.03” deep for each step. Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 13

14 Manufacturing Steps for a V-Block 7.Continue to cut slots, stepping in 0.062” and down 0.030” until the “V” is formed. Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 14

19 Manufacturing Steps for a V-Block Clamping the V-Block 8.Place the block to be milled into a v-block for the correct angle of 90⁰ (degrees). Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 19

20 Manufacturing Steps for a V-Block 9.Place the two blocks on the mill table and adjust the t-bolt, step block, and clamp. 10.Tighten the nut to apply pressure to the clamp and secure the blocks in place. Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 20

21 Manufacturing Steps for a V-Block 11.When finished with the first side, turn the block around, and mill the other side. 12.After the machining is done, sand and polish the block. 13.Store the block until the other parts are milled. Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 21

28 Machining Steps for the Yoke Support 1.Face all surfaces of a 2 ¼” (2.250”) X ⅝” (0.625”) X ½” (0.500”) to make the yoke support. 2.Mount the blank in the mill vise and machine the slot on the end of the yoke support. 3.Machine a slot on both ends. Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 28

29 Machining Steps for the Yoke Support 4.Locate the hole for the yoke arm screws, drill them with a #37 drill ¼” (0.250”) deep, and tap to a #5-44 thread pattern. 5.Locate the center hole for the yoke screw ⅝” (0.312”) X ⅞” (0.875”). 6.Drill a hole using a #4 drill and then tap to ¼ - 20 threads. 7.Sand and buff to a shiny finish, and then place in storage container.

32 Machining the Yoke Screw 1.Take a ¼” (0.250”) rod 1 ¾” long from the storage area. 2.Place the rod in a lathe, face the end, and cut a ⅟₁₆” chamfer in the outside edge. 3.Flip the rod and repeat the step above (#2). 4.Sand and polish the rod for the handle of the screw. Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 32

33 Machining the Yoke Screw 5.Take a ½” (0.500”) rod 2” long from the storage area. 6.Place the rod in a set of v-blocks and drill the ¼” (0.250”) hole for the handle. Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 33

34 Machining the Yoke Screw 7.Place the rod in a lathe, face the end, and cut a ⅟₁₆” chamfer in the outside edge. 8.Flip the rod, face, and machine the shaft down to ¼” (0.250”) diameter for the threads. Copyright © Texas Education Agency, All rights reserved. 34

35 Machining the Yoke Screw 9.Machine the ¼ - 20 threads into the screw. 10.Sand and polish the screw and the handle until shiny. 11.Place the handle in the hole in the screw, and carefully drive the handle until the handle is centered in the screw.
