Sheet Nletal Shop
Sheet metal was a required shop for sophomores and
freshmen. In this shop, the students were assigned projects
like making tool boxes, dust pans, and vent pipes. These
projects enabled the student to become familiar with layouts,
hand tools and some of the equipment used in the fabrication
of metals. Experienced teachers like Robert Flumberfelt and
Norman Griffith made Benson's sheetmetal shop one of the
finest shops in the school.
