OK Guys... I finally registered so I could post here. Get Both magazines, and I've been machining for a whole six months, but been around machine shops and the like off and on most of my life.
I teach at a Community College, subject not related to machining, but the comment about the students is so correct! Most of my students, just really want the grade, an "A" of course. But come to class?? Maybe 75%, the rest come when they have time. If they miss a day or come in late, because they are hung over I'm EXPECTED to tell them what they missed. Labs? Just tell me what you want Bill, don't make me think!
I have maybe 9-10 out of the 14 that I would hire, the rest would not make it a day in the real world. This is your MTV generation/ modern day high school student. Sad state of affairs. B.G.
