About this Event

This section contains a quiz, the passing of which, does these significant things:

Confirms that you are ready for a DMS machine side, hands on class, on the Bridgeport mill. Allows you to review the pre class materials at your own pace and convenience and obtain basic feed back on learning.

Allows you to get your name on the Bridgeport QuizPass AD. This allows the Machine Shop committee to be aware of building demand for a class (at machine side). This helps get classes scheduled.

Note: If you are interested in becoming a Bridgeport mill user, you should complete the process of putting yourself on the QuizPass AD without waiting for a lathe class to appear on the DMS events calendar. If you don’t, the committee won’t see the demand building and schedule a class.

When classes are scheduled, being on the QuizPass AD allows you to register for the class. The QuizPass AD is a prerequisite for registering for a part II class, machine side instruction. The sequence of the best, correct answers is the password that one sends to [email protected] in order to add one’s name to the QuizPass AD. You will know that you have the correct password when the cute, subject relevant word emerges.

Special Considerations and Warnings

This self study prepares one for the machine side class (Part II). It consists of a slide show shop specific to the Bridgeport mill in the DMS machine shop and recommended videos made by the MIT machine shop regarding general Bridgeport mill operations.

If you are interested in becoming an authorized user of the DMS Bridgeport mill, Part II, the machine side class is also necessary. But don't wait for those classes to be scheduled before registering and completing this class (Part I), as the registration and getting on the Quiz Pass AD list lets the instructors and committee know that demand is building for the machine side classes.

When you have taken the quiz, the letters corresponding to the best correct answers form the password that is to be sent to [email protected] If correct your name will be added to the Quiz Pass AD and you will be able to register for any Part II class scheduled. If not, you can re-study and submit again, but you should know that you are correct when you see the cute, subject relevant word emerge.
