The test you are about to take is a general/pre quiz for your Machine Tool technology class. You will be scored at the end of this quiz which will show how much you know about Machine Tool(s). Please mark all answers with the appropriate answer.

• 1.

### What machine do you "Swing the head" on?

• A.

Surface Grinder

• B.

Milling Machine

• C.

Pedestal Grinder

• D.

Lathe

B. Milling Machine
Explanation
"Swinging the head" refers to the movement of the milling machine's head, which can be adjusted in different angles to perform various cutting operations. This movement allows the milling machine to create different types of cuts and shapes on the workpiece. Therefore, the correct answer is milling machine.

### What is the distance you move the far right knob on a Surface grinder?

• A.

10 thousandths

• B.

100 thousandths

• C.

1 thousandths

• D.

75 thousandths

C. 1 thousandths
Explanation
The distance you move the far right knob on a Surface grinder is 1 thousandth. This means that when adjusting the far right knob, you move it by a distance of 0.001 inches. This adjustment is very small and precise, allowing for fine-tuning and precision in the grinding process.

### What is the most important safety precaution when using a surface grinder?

• A.

No long sleeves

• B.

No wrist bands

• C.

No necklaces

• D.

Wear safety glasses

D. Wear safety glasses
Explanation
When using a surface grinder, the most important safety precaution is to wear safety glasses. This is because a surface grinder involves the use of rotating abrasive wheels that can generate sparks, debris, and particles that can potentially cause eye injuries. Safety glasses provide a protective barrier for the eyes, preventing any foreign objects from entering and causing harm. It is crucial to prioritize eye safety while operating a surface grinder to avoid any potential accidents or injuries.

### You can use wood and plastic on a CNC milling machine

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Wood and plastic can be used on a CNC milling machine because these materials are commonly machined using this type of equipment. CNC milling machines are versatile and can handle a wide range of materials, including wood and plastic. These machines use computer-controlled movements to precisely cut and shape the material, making them suitable for various applications in woodworking and plastic fabrication. Therefore, the statement is true.

### What tools are used in making Angle Gauges?

• A.

Hammer

• B.

Hacksaw

• C.

Drill bit/Milling machine

• D.

Lathe

• E.

Surface grinder

• F.

Pedetal grinder

• G.

• H.

File

• I.

Paint brush

B. Hacksaw
C. Drill bit/Milling machine
E. Surface grinder
H. File
I. Paint brush
Explanation
Angle gauges are precision measuring tools used to determine the angle of a surface or object. In order to make angle gauges, several tools are required. A hacksaw is used to cut the desired shape and size of the gauge. A drill bit or milling machine is used to create holes or slots in the gauge for specific measurements. A surface grinder is used to ensure that the gauge has a flat and smooth surface. A file is used for shaping and smoothing the edges of the gauge. Finally, a paint brush is used to apply a protective coating or color to the gauge.

### The X and Y axis on a MILLING Machine when drilling the release hole on a Angle Gauge should be, ____________ and ___________

250 thousandths
375 thousandths
Explanation
The correct answer is 250 thousandths and 375 thousandths. When drilling the release hole on an Angle Gauge using a milling machine, the X and Y axis measurements should be 250 thousandths and 375 thousandths respectively. These measurements ensure accurate drilling and alignment of the release hole on the Angle Gauge.

### You should dress the Surface grinder only 2 times a week.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
The statement suggests that dressing the Surface grinder should only be done 2 times a week. However, the correct answer is False because the frequency of dressing the Surface grinder depends on various factors such as the type of material being ground, the condition of the grinding wheel, and the desired precision of the grinding process. It is important to dress the grinder as often as necessary to maintain optimal performance and achieve the desired results.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### How often should you dress a surface grinder?

• A.

Each time the grinding stone is turned on

• B.

Each time the machine is started up

• C.

Never

• D.

2 times a week

B. Each time the machine is started up
Explanation
Dressing a surface grinder involves removing any buildup or irregularities on the grinding stone to ensure optimal performance. It is necessary to dress the surface grinder each time the machine is started up because the grinding stone may have become dull or clogged during the previous use. By dressing the grinder at the start of each session, the operator can ensure that the grinding stone is in the best condition for accurate and efficient grinding.
