Nearly everything we touch or use in everyday life is manufactured in a MACHINE SHOP, or it is made with tools and equipment that have been produced in a machine shop.
At Jeff Tech, the Machine Shop program is designed to successfully prepare the student to begin work as an entry-level machinist. Instruction is provided in setting up and operating mills, lathes, grinders, and CNC equipment, shop mathematics, blueprint reading, and sketching. As a result of working from blueprints and writing up specifications, the student will develop accuracy and the competence required to operate a full variety of industrial type machine tools.
The program is developed to provide appropriate time for shop projects, skill development, and theory. As always, safety is an important part of all instruction.
