In this advanced skills class, learn the art of tramming, how to make sure the mill and vise are exactly plumb and parallel, and how to precisely square up work. Confidently use a dial test indicator, 1-2-3 block, fly cutter, and deburring stone. Leave with the skill to mill flat and square projects to a very high degree of accuracy. With practice and patience, become a more accurate machinist and competent mill user!
