    Default High School Fun

    Thought you might enjoy looking at my Ag. Welding Fabrication Classes latest project. The class wanted to build something that would show their talent and be useful. Gary Davis's excellent welding trailer caught the attention of the class and was the inspiration for this project. I will add detailed pictures when time permits, but here are a few highlights of the project. The trailer is 5' X10' with 3 locking tool boxes, locking cable well, and a locking drawer under the welder. When designing the trailer a lot of thought was put into eliminating leg grabbers and shin bangers. We are currently finishing up a mechanics vice and a pipe vice that lock into the stake pockets. When not in use the vices will store in the drawer under the welder. A removable ladder rack and the fire extinguisher brackets are also in the paint room. My students will be checking the site and looking forward to your comments.1welder (Medium).jpg

    Looking forward to more detailed pictures!

    Just an FYI, in the second picture, tell those two boys on the right to get out of that habit before they hit the working world.

    Hands in pockets!!! Signs of boredom, laziness, etc. etc. not good looking like you have nothing to do.

    Grumpy makes a very good point.
    If you look shiftless, you may very well be shiftless.

    Usually there isn't much to do when posing for a picture.

    I would think that nice trailer they built is more of a statement of their skills and attitude to work than how they posed for a photo.

    They did a very nice job on the trailer, it looks great.

    However I do need to agree with Grumpy,there are better ways to pose than with your hands in your pockets, show pride in your pose, first impressions last.
