cool! i took 5 1/2 years of mechanical drafting and 1 1/2 years of architectual drafting in school, back in the day when we had to use triangles and a compass and dividers, no fancy computers to draw it for you back then LOL  most people thought it was boring, but i enjoyed it, paid off later, i can sketch out a rough blueprint for a part and take it to the machine shop, and get the part back perfectThumbs Up

Being able to draft out your idea can really be helpful for a lot of different things.
 
I can also kindof draw by hand too.

I thought that first one was a picture as well. Finally saw the flag and realized it was a drawing. Superb.

I was very much into mechanical drawing from the time I was a kid and all through high school. Wanted to be an architect more than anything, but that dream was smashed.

Fantastic work!

LOL, I hadn't heard that one.
Alex, I can't carry a tune if it was in a bucket.

Don't underestimate yourself Alex. I bet you can draw LOTS of flies....without even trying.

I am a General Education teacher at New Castle School of Trades. We teach a bunch of different trades between the two schools. The school I'm at has Diesel, Power Generation, Heavy equipment repair (one program) Motor cycle and power equipment, Commercial truck driving, Heavy equipment operation, and industrial maintenance. 











The Students did an in-frame overhaul on this detroit 60 series, and had some inspiration from an instructors at home project....

I currently am an electrostatic painter for a company that manufactures push reel mowers.



I paint them as they roll through my paint booth.



It's a messy job working with 50 year old equipment sometimes...



Then there are the days you don't realize your mask leaks until your nose is all green.



It's a good job, great hours, and some decent perks like access to free sheet metal scraps, media blasting equipment, welders, etc. The plant supervisor is customizing a 58 Chevy Truck and is pretty cool about letting us use equipment on our time for our projects. As soon as I score some spare control arms I'm going to run them through my booth. We have a really nice metallic silver gloss, and a nice gunmetal metallic I want to try on them. The paint is really durable after it is baked on, I think it will work real well.

lee: that's cool to have those kind of perks, especially for a car guy with upcoming projects! Big smile

zack: cool! i used to be a Detroit guy, until i started driving this kenworth now with a 3406E in it, LOVE IT! but i learned as a kid driving a Detroit 8V71 in a 69 cab over freightliner, nothing like the sound of those old 2 stroke detroits!!!!Thumbs Up you have any of those old 2 stroke v-8's in the shop 8V71's or 8V92's? for nostalgic purposes???
