  • Bumper built in high school ag shop

    Thought I would share a few photos of a custom bumper built by three of my senior ag mechanics students.

    Feel free to ask questions!

        Nice job on the bumper, thanks for sharing. Is the grill guard welded to the top of the bumper or does it go through and mount to the frame ?

          It is mounted through to the frame. A bit tricky getting the angle

                  All MIG. Can't seem to convince them that the trusty old stick welder will do the job. 3 different machines used - Millermatic 35, 250 and 251 - depended on which one was available at the time. My favorite is the old 35

                    Just take your time and make sure to measure everything twice. We did a lot of tacking and evaluating. Except for the floor plating, all materials were recycled.

                      I should have 2 more bumpers to show pics of after Christmas break. These seem to have become the project of choice this year. Doesn't matter to me, they are fabricating and welding!

                          I bet it was, at the same time, it was a nice learning curve for them. Look forward to seeing more projects the students put out, big or small.

                            Not sure if I am a very good teacher, but I can get them to think (sometimes) Two of the boys are already enrolled (to go this fall) at Tulsa Welding School. I think they are hooked for life on welding, just not too sure about this internet thing.

                            I learn as much from them as they learn from me. I typically have to say, "Oh no, you did exactly what I told you, and it was wrong!"

                              That is Hilarious!!! My son went there as well(TWS) and got "Top One"
                              Changed his life forever. He made $80,000+ last year welding on powerplants.
                              Tell them that they should not believe all their propoganda tho. They are there to make money not help the world, and they will spit yer @$$ out in a heartbeat and keep yer money!!! They will still have to start out at the bottom wherever they go as well. Running a pretty bead and working/making things can be 2 different things. They will need to become MEN
                              I wish there was more shop teachers out there like you ...HATS OFF!!!
