SHM 107 - Sheet Metal 2

Credits: 3
1 Lecture Hours 4 Lab Hours

This is a course for the intermediate sheet metal applications student. More challenging methods of triangulation, radial line development and seaming will be covered. Students will further develop those basic skills learned in SHM 103  and apply them to more challenging projects.
Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:

  1. Choose appropriate seams and techniques for projects which will produce a structurally sound and aesthetically pleasing end product.
  2. Apply knowledge of triangulation to projects which are off center and cut off –plane.
  3. Calculate cut lists for an order of fittings given a shop sketch or order sheet.
  4. Execute lay outs of fittings basic fittings list without assistance.
  5. Prepare a sequence of operations for a fabrication job given an order sheet, which maximizes shop resources and provides for linear tracking of product through the process.
  6. Apply knowledge of parallel line development to projects which are intersected at angles.
  7. Apply knowledge of radial line development to projects which are centerline offset, but mitered at and angle.
  8. Correctly “tin” a soldering iron given necessary tools, material and equipment.
  9. Perform a complete stripping and re-forming of a soldering iron that has been overheated or damaged.
  10. Solder a ¾” lap seam on 16 oz. copper in flat position.
  11. Solder a ¾” hook seam on 16 oz. copper in flat position.
