How do you cut a ping pong ball in half?
Use an X-Acto knife (the preferred eye surgery utensil of Terminators everywhere) to carefully cut the pingpong ball in half along the circumference. If a seam exists on the ball, cut along this. If you do not have an X-Acto knife or similar tool, you can use scissors.
What is a turning lathe?
Turning is a machining process used to make cylindrical parts in which the cutting tool moves in a linear fashion while the workpiece rotates. Commonly performed with a lathe, turning reduces the diameter of a workpiece to a specified dimension and produces a smooth part finish.
What is drilling in lathe?
Drilling is a cutting process that uses a drill bit to cut a hole of circular cross-section in solid materials. The drill bit is usually a rotary cutting tool, often multi-point. The bit is pressed against the work-piece and rotated at rates from hundreds to thousands of revolutions per minute.
Can parting be done on lathe?
This cut is always at right angles to the axis of the lathe. Parting tools of almost any sort seldom give the best possible finish. Parting is done with a special tool. There are two varieties – those using a blade of HSS and those using carbide inserts.
What are parting tools?
1 : a narrow-bladed tool used in turning or planing or for cutting a piece in two. 2 : a tool used (as in lathe work) for cutting off pieces from the main body of stock being worked on.
What is a scraper tool?
A hand scraper is a single-edged tool used to scrape metal from a surface. This may be required where a surface needs to be trued, corrected for fit to a mating part, needs to retain oil (usually on a freshly ground surface), or to give a decorative finish. Surface plates were traditionally made by scraping.
What is multiple point cutting tool?
A multi-point cutting tool contains more than two main cutting edges that simultaneously engage in cutting action in a pass. Sometime, cutters with two cutting edges (more than one) are also considered multi-point cutting tools (instead of considering it as a double point cutter).
What is knurling on a lathe?
Knurling is a manufacturing process, typically conducted on a lathe, whereby a pattern of straight, angled or crossed lines is rolled into the material.
What is parallel turning on a lathe?
Parallel Turning is a centre lathe cutting process which is performed to reduce the diameter of the workpiece. To move the tool in this direction, the saddle wheel will be turned.
What is chamfering in lathe machine?
Chamfering: Chamfering is the operation of beveling the extreme end of the work piece. The form tool used for taper turning may be used for this purpose. Chamfering is an essential operation after thread cutting so that the nut may pass freely on the threaded work piece.
