The weather was getting really warm this week hitting 20º yesterday, but we had an ice surprise this afternoon.

Surprise hail!


Workshop A

    This week Daniel, David and Miguel took their first winding stem practice exam. They had to make a full winding stem, thread, square, pinion and have the whole thing hardened, tempered and polished within 8 hours.

    Dunham took his filing exam to make a male and female piece from 2 perfect squares within 8 hours. He also finished his pallet fork holder and started learning how to oil incablocs.
