The Adams County Community Foundation (ACCF) awarded a grant this week to the South Adams Precision Machining class for their ground-breaking adult education series.
Jerod Dailey, the instructor for the program, recently hosted eight adult-education students with the third of a series of machining classes. Kevin Gerber, on staff with the Mitsubishi Materials metalworking solutions company, was the presenter. The topic was hard milling tools and techniques.
Jerod Dailey organized the presentation and the program, which was initially offered to the South Adams high school machining students. Then the adult education class was offered 3:30-7:30, presented by Kody Daniels, a staff member at Kennametal and a former SA precision machine student. The adult students are current machining employees that came with a high level of machining experience.
Other area companies represented at the presentation were Fullenkamp Machine Inc., Star Engineering, Melching Machine, O & R Precision Grinding, FCC (Indiana), LH Carbide, Troyer Brothers, Micromatic LLC, and Engineering Research. Their interest is learning about new tools and techniques. Jerod Dailey plans to continue to offer adult education classes to upskill and enhance the interest in the machining field.
Do you want to start machining and not sure where to start? Are you currently in a position of employment in milling / tools and want to learn more? Are you an expert at milling and tool making and want to join in on the discussion and help teach others learn the tricks you have learned over the years? The next Precision Machining class will be sponsored by South Adams Precision machines. Jerod is looking for suggestions for topics.
