    Describe how an M6 thread is cut into a blind hole

    Explanation
    To cut an M6 thread into a blind hole, a taper tap is used. The taper tap is inserted into the hole and turned 1/4 of a turn forward to start cutting the thread. Then, it is turned back 1/2 of a turn to break the chips and clear the tap. Finally, a plug tap is used to finish off the thread, ensuring it is fully formed and clean. This process allows for the creation of an M6 thread in a blind hole, ensuring proper fit and functionality.

    Write a sequence of operations for preparing and painting metal

    Explanation
    The correct answer suggests the sequence of operations for preparing and painting metal. The first step is to clean the metal to remove any dirt, dust, or grease that may be present on its surface. This ensures that the paint adheres properly. Once the metal is clean, the next step is to prime it. Priming helps to create a smooth surface, improves paint adhesion, and provides protection against corrosion. Finally, after the primer has dried, the metal can be painted with the desired color. This sequence ensures that the metal is properly prepared and painted for a long-lasting and professional finish.

    State two checks that should be carried out on the drilling machine before switching it on

    Explanation
    Before switching on the drilling machine, two checks should be carried out. The first check is to make sure that the drill is securely tightened in the machine. This is important to ensure that the drill bit is properly attached and will not come loose during operation. The second check is to make sure that the visor is down. This is a safety measure to protect the operator's eyes from any flying debris or sparks that may be generated during drilling. By following these checks, the drilling machine can be operated safely and efficiently.

    Name the lathe cutting tool which would cut a shorter piece of metal from a longer bar whilst still on the lathe

    Explanation
    A 3 jaw chuck or a three jaw chuck is a lathe cutting tool that is used to securely hold a workpiece in place while it is being machined. It has three adjustable jaws that can be tightened or loosened to grip the workpiece. When cutting a shorter piece of metal from a longer bar, the 3 jaw chuck can hold the bar in place and allow the lathe to remove the excess material, resulting in a shorter piece without the need to remove the bar from the chuck.
