Machine (turn) a model ships cannon from brass blank. Mastering and advancing basic skills on the metal lathe. 10-15 periods. This is a more advanced project for students with limited skills. Design modifications can be made to simplify the machining process and accommodate students. My version for students is based on a craft project written and submitted for Popular Mechanics February 1969 (see excerpted pages as reference) by Walter E. Burton. The original article pages 134-139 can be accessed online at the Google books link for Popular Mechanics (included later in this template). I have provided scans attached as well. Please note full respect of copyright and resources gathered over time from colleagues. I also reference a DVD set on Machining that includes demonstrations of lathe and milling machine. I've included more notes on project source info later within the template.
