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.

Pattern making has been growing in importance through the
years. Today in a time when space technology and other
industries have so rapidly advanced we find that the art of
pattern craftsmanship has changed somewhat but it is still
basically the same as in it's beginning centuries ago.
The pattern making course at Benson is two fold. First a
nine week orientation program is taught at the sophomore
level. Pattern two is a majoring course for students in the junior
and senior classes.
Basic pattern skills were taught along with a general
understanding of pattern and casting design.
The students worked with wood, plaster of paris, and metal.
Placement in local industry is done upon graduation of
senior students when job openings are available.
