Instruction example 10.4. Drilling support

To practise chipping chiselling of faces and grooves on cast iron.


Cast iron


abt. 16 mm


100 mm


140 mm


Hand tools

Steel scriber, punch, hammer, cape chisel 5 mm, flat chisel, half-round grooving chisel 4 mm

Measuring and testing tools

Steel rule, depth gauge


C-clamp, steel plate, protective wall or protective grating

Required previous knowledge

Reading of drawings, scribing, prick-punching, measuring, testing

Sequence of operations


1. Arrange workplace, prepare working material

- Check for completeness

2. Checking of initial dimensions

- Set check punch marks

3. Scribing of the step edge (35 x 100) and of the centre lines of the grooves on this face

4. Chiselling of the grooves with the cape chisel from both sides, chiselling off of the remained webs by the flat chisel

- approx. 3 chip thicknesses

5. Scribing of the chamfer 5 x 45 and chiselling off with the flat chisel

- approx. 2 chip thicknesses

6. Scribing of the groove cross (centre lines)

7. First chisel completely one groove with the grooving chisel, then, proceeding from the middle, chisel the second groove towards both sides
