Moving To Machine
The Benson Machine shop has just received a new
Apple lle computer, equipped with two disk drives, and
a line printer. ln time it will be connected to the CNC
mill, that is, it will be ableto showthe path ofatool on a
screen, without actually running the toolg also, it will
allow direct programming into the Bridgeport mill.
When the budget allows, the shop will have a tape
reader and writer to assist the computer.
The Apple ll also has the capability to be hooked up
to a CNC lathe.
Elsewhere in the shop, there are two students
working on special technical projects for the
Professional Engineer's Contest at the Tech Show.
The Machine shop is patiently awaiting the arrival of
a new milling machine to replace the one that no
longer correctly works.
"l enjoy the shop because l feel it has a definite
impact inthe industrial world. Right now, l'm thinking
of my future and the future seems to be with machines.
And the pay is very good!," stated Charise Johnson
"lt gets boring because it's so long, but it's also very
interesting, especially the bigger and harder projects,"
Scot Thorburn 1111 added.
"lt's the best shop in the school with the best
students and the finest staff. The potential for making a
living is unlimited because the average age of
machinists is over 50 years of age," commented Mr. Ed
Thiringer, instructor foreman.
