Of all the classes I have taken in my life, my 7th grade technology class had the greatest impact on my life. Before this class, I had never operated a power tool or even considered making anything more substantial than a clubhouse made from old blankets. By the time I completed this class, I was sure of my decision to secure a job in the manufacturing industry.
I am now retired, but even after all these years, I am in awe of everything that has been accomplished using even the most basic industrial process, such as thermal processing. Through this blog I hope to give back to the world what my 7th grade teacher gave to me, a true love and appreciation of machinery.
