To practise cutting-off and chipping chiselling of sheet steel


- Sheet steel (380 MPa)


abt. 1.5 mm


320 mm


360 mm

- 4 x button-head rivet of 4 mm dia.


Hand tools

Brass scriber, steel scriber or surface gauge, flat chisel, engineers' hammer, centre punch, drills with flat point and centre point of 4.1 mm dia. and 8 mm dia., smooth file 250 mm (flat)

Measuring and testing tools

Steel rule


Steel plate or anvil and spacer, protective wall or protective grating

Required previous knowledge

Reading of drawings, scribing, prick-punching, measuring, filing, drilling

Sequence of operations


1. Arrange workplace, prepare working material

- Check for completeness

2. Checking of initial dimensions of the sheet metal, if necessary, reworking

- (shearing, filing)

3. Scribing of the edges to be parted and bent as per drawing, scribing and punching of the holes

- Attention!
When using a steel scriber, scribe lightly on the inside of the bending edge - otherwise danger of breaking when bending!

4. Drilling of the holes with the drill with flat point and centre point - corner holes of 8 mm dia., rivet holes of 4.1 dia., deburring of the holes

- Protect workpiece against pulling up and twisting!

5. Chiselling out of the outlines of the case - at one side with overlapping chisel neck along the scribed line

6. Deburring of the edges

7. Checking of the edges

- Cleanliness, accuracy to size

Finishing: Bending of the side parts by means of a bending machine and on the vice, riveting of the side parts with button-head rivets of 4 mm dia.
