Member 3 = meowing guy who showed up most of the time, but was mentally elsewhere.
Member 4 = guy who showed up once.

I don't know how they fared. I don't even know how I did. I hope I got an A. I hope they were "rewarded" for their work, too.. but it's none of my business.

CNC, SolidWorks, PLC, and robotics/automation. It can be difficult switching gears from one thing to the next but my schedule is finally hammered out so that I have at least one CNC course each semester. Next semester I'm running a course that deals strictly with designing a new product (or fixture) and the problems/redesigns that come with work holding and actual machining, it will utilize SolidWorks, CAM and CNC to make a prototype of the designs. Should be interesting.

I love, love, love the job but I now understand why school gets let out for the summer. I take more baggage home with me on this than on any job I've ever had and it gets tiresome sometimes. I worked the first 3 summers but the last 2 I have taken off and/or done some customized 1 - 2 week training with factories (PLC stuff).

Just checking in again. Thanks for the description of your class. Makes me want to go to school and take a few of these for fun.

Can't wait to see the CNC class.

Ask anyone who's actually met me. I'm not actually that crazy. More quiet and boring, really.

Unless I've been drinking.. then I talk. A little.

Cool stuff.

Instead of a new car, or a new motorcycle, or a new house, or whatever people buy after they graduate, I am pretty sure I am going to get a (used, most likely) CNC mill.

After which, I will be for hire.

Can you make a Y-pipe for an R100GS?

Cool. I made a DIY Foundry for the backyard but haven't used it yet because I don't have a crucible.

Well, the semester already started. I've had 2 CNC lectures so far. There are 13 people in the class. No girls.

Lab begins next week. Unfortunately, there will be lab groups again.

I'm trying not to jinx myself in that respect. I'm looking forward to the projects.

I tried to take a PLC short course, but my Demolition class has a lab on one of the 4 days the PLC lab is scheduled. Oh well..
