    Danny and Jacob went over to the cutoff saw and lopped a good piece off. Funny their gun ho on the hi-tech and a little slow on the old school stuff. Jacob had the bar locked down in the saw and was trying to measure his piece. The blade was a foot above the part. I reached over turned the valve and slowly dropped the blade down and stopped it just above the part. Jacob smiled, nodded and gave me a thumbs up. He made his measurement. Iím old school, but Jacob is off and running into the future with the computer age.

    One of my favorite little tricks on a lathe is showing beginners how to center their cutting tool on the round work stock.

    Yes, it does. But it seems like a little overkill. At the school shop the other day I used a short broken off piece of a bandsaw blade.

    Shop tour

    The Rains invited me down for a class study session. I couldnít turn that down. After that, time to tour the shop. Danny does a good business in boat repair, but he really likes American muscle sports cars and motorcycles.

    Cool early AMC Javelin getting new floor pans and a ton of more work. Danny does almost all his own work. Impressive.
