SHM 107 - Sheet Metal 2

Credits: 3
1 Lecture Hours 4 Lab Hours

Building on the foundation from SHM 103 , this course challenges students with more complex projects, enhancing precision and design aesthetics in metalwork. Students progress to intermediate sheet metal techniques, emphasizing triangulation, radial line development and seaming.
Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will: 

  1. Select seams and techniques to make structurally sound and visually appealing metal products. 
  2. Apply triangulation methods for fabricating projects with off-center and non-planar components. 
  3. Compute material lists for fittings using sketches and blueprints.
  4. Create layouts of basic fittings from a provided list. 
  5. Organize operational sequences for fabrication jobs to optimize resource use and product tracking. 
  6. Apply parallel line development strategies for angularly intersected metal projects. 
  7. Utilize radial line development techniques in projects with centerline offsets and angled miters. 
  8. Tin a soldering iron using the provided tools, materials and equipment.
  9. Reconstruct a damaged soldering iron through complete stripping and re-forming techniques. 
  10. Solder a ¾-inch lap seam on 16-ounce copper in a flat orientation. 
  11. Solder a ¾-inch hook seam on 16-ounce copper, maintaining a flat position to match the AWS B2.3 Soldering Certification standard.
