REFLECTION ON GRINDING AND MILLING

Background
As we started, Professor Daisy Bantatua and his Assistant Professor Ador Alomia assigned us to report
the Grinding, Drilling and Milling by groupings. For doing that, our two professors divided us 5-6 members that
accommodate of 5 groups then we assigned designated reports each groups. We already finished the topic of
Grinding, Drilling and Milling on our academic and for making actual Cadet Fernandez assigned by Our
Professor Daisy to buy a Materials that needed on our laboratory this are the “tool block” and “Stainless long
bar” that’s why Fernandez contributed each F1E cadet to pay a 100 pesos for the two materials are needed.
Cadet Fernandez gave the tool block and for the long bar stainless we cut us by 6 inches individually using of
hacksaw and we now started the machine shop laboratory.
Grinding of Tool bit and Chisel
Tool bit
Step 1: Use a bench grinder to sharpen your tool bits. Even an inexpensive bench grinder can do a good job
grinding lathe tool bits. In some cases, you might want to purchase a higher quality fine grit wheel. Keep a
small cup of water near your grinder. Grinding generates heat, which can cause two problems. The tool bit will
become too hot to hold. Overheating can also affect the heat treatment of the tool bit, leaving the cutting edge
soft. Use a protractor to measure the angles. They are not super-critical, but you should try to stay within one
degree of the recommendations.
Step 2: Grind the Front Relief
The first step in creating a tool bit is to grind the front relief. For most work, a relief angle of 10° works well.
While you are grinding the front relief, you are also creating the front cutting edge angle. Make this angle about
10° also, so that the corner formed by the front cutting edge and the side cutting edge is less than 90°.
Step 3: Grind the Left Side Relief From the left side relief next. Again, create about a 10° angle. You don’t need
to form a side cutting angle. The side cutting edge can be parallel to the side of the tool blank.
Step 4: Grind the Top Rake
The top of the tool bit is ground at an angle that combines the back rake and the side rake. The side rake is most
important, because the side cutting edge does most of the work. For cutting steel and aluminum, the side rake
should be about 12° and the back rake should be about 8°. For cutting brass, the rake angles should be much
less, or even 0°.
Step 5: Round the Nose
A small nose radius allows you to turn into tight corners. A large nose radius produces better surface finishes.
Create a nose radius that is appropriate for the tool bit you are creating.
Grinding the Chisel
Step 1: First, adjust the tool rest on the grinder so the chisel (or plane iron) can lie flat on the surface of the rest,
not just against the upper or lower edge. This way you have more control. The bevel on most chisels and plane
irons is 25 degrees. So set the angle of the tool rest to grind the same bevel on your tool.
Step 2: Next, I clamp a small, rectangular block of wood to the blade so the long side of the block butts against
the lower edge of the tool rest during sharpening. This provides a positive reference point (a stop) so you can lift
the tool off the wheel to inspect the bevel or dip it in water. Then the tool can be returned to precisely the same
spot on the wheel.
Step 3: Some chisels are too short to attach a stop block. In that case, you can use a small C-clamp as a stop.
But if there's room, I use a stop block because it has the added advantage of holding the tool perpendicular to
the edge of the tool rest. This makes it easier to grind a bevel that's 90 degree to the side of the tool.
