## DEFINITION OF CIRCLE

PARTS OF A CIRCLE

A circle is a plane figure bounded by a curved line called the circumference. All the points on the circumference of a circle are equidistant from a point called the centre.

** **

**parts of a circle**

**Diameter**

The diameter is a straight line drawn through the centre of a circle and meeting the circumference at both ends.

**Radius**

The radius is a straight line drawn from the centre of a circle to any point on the circumference of the circle. The length of the radius is always used to draw the circle.

**Segment**

The segment is an area of the circle bounded by an arc and a straight line called the chord.** **

**Chord**

The chord is a straight line which joins any two given points on the circumference of a circle.

**Sector**

The sector is part of the circle bounded by two radii and an arc.

**Quadrant**

The quadrant is the part of the circle bounded by two radii which are at right angles to each other, bounded by an arc. The quadrant, as the name, is ¼ of the circle.

**Tangent**

The tangent is usually formed outside the circle. When a straight line touched is formed. However, that line must be right angle to a radius.

- Surface planing
- Thicknessing machine
- Drill Press machine
- Wood lathe
- Band saw

** Circular Sawing Machine:** This is a woodworking machine used to re-saw or prepares timber into suitable sizes for articles of joinery, furniture e.t.c. Circular saws include the ripsaw and cross cut saw. Other special purpose saw and are fitted onto the machine as their uses arises include upper saw, hollow ground saw, ground-off saw, wobble saw or drunken saw, novelty saw, planer saw.

There are other sawing machines that can do the same job as circular sawing machine does a hand feed bench type with tilting arbor, and rise and fall attachment would be most suitable.

2.** Band Sawing machine: **This is a wood working machine having a compensating arrangement of a band saw that allows the upper pulley to move up and down and adjust to the changes in the saw and keep the tension of the blade constant.

** 3. Surface Planing Machine:** This is a woodworking machine that enables the sawn timber to be planed to remove marks thus ensuring a flat surface.Planing is the most laborious operations in woodworking. The introduction of the planing machines enables construction of pieces to be planed to the required thickness joining edge to edge.

Surface planing machine is used for truing up the edges, removing the marks and for removing the “wind or twist” on the face of the wood. It can also handle chamfering, beveling, tapering and tenoning.

This is a woodworking machine that is used exclusively for planing wood to a specific thickness after surface planing operation.__Thicknessing Machine:__

In order to achieve a perfect operation, the front table is pulled backwards from the cutter block to allow the wood chips fly out. __ __

This another wood working machine, which can also be used as machine tools, used for performing various operations such as boring, sanding and mortising.__The Drill Press:__

__Wood Lathe Machine__This is a wood working machine, which can be used for metal working operations, employed where a number of turning will be made.__:__

Generally, turning can be made on the lathe in two ways i.e. between centres and the faceplate- both inside and outside. The lathe bed must be sturdy. The headstock runs on double bearing which may be directly driven with about four speeds

- Shaping machine
- Planing machine
- Milling machine
- Grinding machine
- The drill press
- The lathe machine

**Definition**

Metalwork machines are machines used for metal work operations. The various types of metalwork machines include the following:

- Shaping machine
- Planing machine
- Milling machine
- Grinding machine
- The drill press
- The lathe machine

**Evaluation**

- Define machine tools
- State 6 machine tools

**1. The milling machine**

A milling machine is a machine tool used to machine solid materials. Milling machines are often classed in two basic forms, horizontal and vertical, which refers to the orientation of the main spindle. Both types range in size from small, bench-mounted devices to room-sized machines. Unlike a drill press, which holds the workpiece stationary as the drill moves axially to penetrate the material, milling machines also move the workpiece radially against the rotating milling cutter, which cuts on its sides as well as its tip. Workpiece and cutter movement are precisely controlled to less than 0.001 in (0.025 mm), usually by means of precision ground slides and leadscrews or analogous technology. Milling machines may be manually operated, mechanically automated, or digitally automated via computer numerical control (CNC).

Milling machines can perform a vast number of operations, from simple (e.g., slot and keyway cutting, planing, drilling) to complex (e.g., contouring, diesinking). Cutting fluid is often pumped to the cutting site to cool and lubricate the cut and to wash away the resulting swarf.

**2. Planing machine (Planer)**

Metal-cutting machine tool in which the work piece is firmly attached to a horizontal table that moves back and forth under a single-point cutting tool. The tool-holding device is mounted on a cross rail so that the tool can be moved across the table in small sideward movements. Since the cutting tool can be moved at almost any angle, a wide variety of grooves and surfaces can be generated. Mechanical planers, or surfacers, are also used to smooth wood to an even thickness. Planers perform the same operations as shapers but can machine work pieces up to 50 ft (15 m) long.

A machine for the shaping of long, flat, or flat contoured surfaces by reciprocating the work piece under a stationary single-point tool or tools.

**Milling machine**

This is a machine tool that rotates a circular tool with numerous cutting edges arranged symmetrically about its axis, called a milling cutter. The metal work piece is usually held in a vise clamped to a table that can move in three perpendicular directions. Cutters of many shapes and sizes are available for a wide variety of milling operations. Milling machines cut flat surfaces, grooves, shoulders, inclined surfaces, dovetails, and T-slots. Various form-tooth cutters are used for cutting concave forms and convex grooves, for rounding corners, and for cutting gear teeth.

A machine for the removal of metal by feeding a work piece through the periphery of a rotating circular cutter. It is known as miller.

**The drill press**

This is m machine tool for producing holes in hard substances. The drill is held in a rotating spindle and is fed into the work piece, which is usually clamped in a vise supported on a table. The drill may be gripped in a chuck with three jaws that move radially in unison, or it may have a tapered shank that fits into a tapered hole in the spindle. Means are provided for varying the spindle speed and (on some machines) for automatically feeding the drill into the work piece. *See also* boring machine. A drilling machine, in which a vertical drill, moves into the work, which is stationary.

**The lathe machine**

Lathe (lā*th*), machine tool for holding and turning metal, wood, plastic, or other material against a cutting tool to form a cylindrical product or part. It also drills, bores, polishes, grinds, makes threads, and performs other operations. Its principal parts are the headstock (attached to the bed or base of the machine), which holds one end of the material in a rotating spur; the tailstock, which holds the other end, moves along the bed, and can be clamped in position at any point; the cutting tool; and the power feed, comprising the drive and its motive parts.

Machine tool that performs turning operations in which unwanted material is removed from a work piece rotated against a cutting tool. Lathes are among the oldest and most important machine tools, used in France from 1569 and important in the Industrial Revolution in England, when they were adapted for metal cutting. Lathes (usually called engine lathes) today has a power-driven, variable-speed horizontal spindle to which the work holding device is attached. Operations include turning straight or tapered cylindrical shapes, grooves, shoulders, and screw threads and facing flat surfaces on the ends of cylindrical parts. Internal cylindrical operations include most of the common hole-machining operations, such as drilling, boring, reaming, counter boring, countersinking, and threading with a single-point tool or tap. *See also* boring machine.

Lathe^{: }A machine for shaping, boring, facing, or cutting a screw thread in metal, wood, etc., in which the work piece is turned about a horizontal axis against a fixed tool

The lathe machine is regarded as the father of all machine tools because apart from being used for turning cylindrical surface (external and internal) it can perform other operations which are peculiar to other machines.

Thus, it is possible to carry out the following operations on the lathe machine:

- Turning (production of cylindrical of flat such as plumb bulb, centre punch)
- Facing (production of flat surfaces)
- Screw cutting (external and internal)
- Grinding (external and internal)
- Slotting
- Taper turning (production of conical surface )

**Parts of the lathe machine**

- Bed: This provides a plane surface for mounting and moving accessories at a constant level.
- Head stock: This holds the main spindle and houses the arrangement for driving and speed variation

- Main spindle: This rotates the work and transmits movement to saddle.

- Tailstock: It is used to support work being turned between centres.

- Saddle and cross slide: These are used for mounting the tool for cylindrical work.

- Lead screw: Moves the saddle at rates relative to the rotation of the work.

- Compound slide: This permit movement of the tools at angles other than a right angle (e.g. for conical work)

- Centres: These support work drilled at end centres

- Steadies: These support work to prevent bending. They can be either of fixed type bolted to the end of the bed, or of the traveling type bolted to the saddle which prevents vibration during machining of long and slender shafts.

**Wood holding methods**

Work holding methods on a lathe machine include:

- Catch and center: This method is used when matching ordinary work between centres. Matching between centres is used when chuck matching is impossible.
- Face plate: The pace plate has slots for clamping or holding jobs with T-bolts Chuck: A chuck holds cylindrical work which is to be done in setting. It may be of the three-jaw, self-centering, chuck which grips irregular jobs more efficiently than three-jaw chuck.

**SHAPER**

A shaper is analogous to a planer, but smaller, and with the cutter riding a ram that moves above a stationary workpiece, rather than the entire workpiece moving beneath the cutter. The ram is moved back and forth typically by a crank inside the column; hydraulically actuated shapers also exist.

## Operation

Shaper linkage. Note the drive arm revolves less for the return stroke than for the cutting stroke, resulting in a quicker return stroke and more powerful cutting stroke.

A shaper operates by moving a hardened cutting tool backwards and forwards across the workpiece. On the return stroke of the ram the tool is lifted clear of the workpiece, reducing the cutting action to one direction only.

The workpiece mounts on a rigid, box-shaped table in front of the machine. The height of the table can be adjusted to suit this workpiece, and the table can traverse sideways underneath the reciprocating tool, which is mounted on the ram. Table motion may be controlled manually, but is usually advanced by an automatic feed mechanism acting on the feedscrew. The ram slides back and forth above the work. At the front end of the ram is a vertical tool slide that may be adjusted to either side of the vertical plane along the stroke axis. This tool-slide holds the *clapper box* and toolpost, from which the tool can be positioned to cut a straight, flat surface on the top of the workpiece. The tool-slide permits feeding the tool downwards to deepen a cut. This adjustability, coupled with the use of specialized cutters and toolholders, enable the operator to cut internal and external gear tooth profiles, splines, dovetails, and keyways.

The ram is adjustable for stroke and, due to the geometry of the linkage, it moves faster on the return (non-cutting) stroke than on the forward, cutting stroke. This action is via a *slotted link* or *whitworth* link.

**USES**

The most common use is to machine straight, flat surfaces, but with ingenuity and some accessories a wide range of work can be done. Other examples of its use are:

**TOPIC: FRICTION** ELEARNING NOTE

**CONTENT**

**Meaning of Friction****Advantages and Disadvantages of Friction****How to Reduce Friction**

**MEANING OF FRICTION**

When a body slides over the surface of another body, there is opposing force acting opposite to the direction of motion. This opposing force is called **FRICTION**. Friction is therefore the force that opposes the relative motion between two surfaces that are in contact. Friction is required in most of the things we do. For instance, to be able to run, friction is required between the shoe and the ground. Also, a car must maintain friction between its tyres and the road to be able to move forward. It is also important to note the following:

- The rougher the surfaces rubbing against each other, the more the friction
- The smoother the surfaces rubbing against each other, the less the friction

**ADVANTAGES OF FRICTION**

- With the help of friction it is possible to walk freely.
- Without friction the brake of a motor car cannot work.
- Buildup of friction between the bolts and nuts help them to stay tightened.
- A ladder positioned against a vertical wall will not slide due to friction between the ladder and the wall

**DISADVANTAGES OF FRICTION**

- It reduces the efficiency of machines
- It causes wear and tear in machines
- It reduces motion
- It causes the heating of engines

**EVALUATION**

- What is friction?
- State two advantages and two disadvantages of friction.

**APPLICATIONS OF FRICTION**

**HOW TO REDUCE FRICTION**

- Friction between the matchbox and the matchstick creates light
- In sharpening a knife with a file, friction is also employed
- In sharpening a pencil, friction is required between the sharpener blade and the pencil for sharpening to take place.
- Materials used for making floors in homes and offices must be of high friction to provide a firm grip for the feet.

- Lubricating: This involves the use of oily substance such as oil, grease and other material, that makes surfaces smooth and slippery, thereby reducing heat, wear, friction and vibration caused when two or more surfaces rub together.
- Polishing: Friction between two surfaces in contact can be reduced by polishing them
- Streamlining: It helps to reduce friction due to the shape of an object
- Use of belt drives and pulley

**EVALUATION**

- State four methods of reducing friction
- List four applications of friction
