A week of turning

The master at work
After the students learned how to setup the lathe, they have been turning non-stop.  They have been practicing the different shapes of pivots, for example, square shoulders, convex cones, concave cones, and rounded tips and many others. At the end of the week the students also learned how to disassemble the lathes and service them, as should be done regularly.

On the weekend Costya perfected his skills in burnishing.  He had a lot of fun as you can see in the picture below.

The students have received their last micromechanics' tool, the micrometer.  These micrometers are accurate to the micron, and these lucky students even got them on discount!
