Computer Wiring New
Feature In Electric
Freshmen learned what can be done with electricity
in the Electric Shop. Taught by Mr. Francis Walborn
and Mr. Kenneth Hershberger, the students learned
through written work, discussion, and shop projects.
They repaired small home appliances, made a small
motor and investigated transformers.
Seniors became involved with two electric cars in the
shop and worked on computerized wiring projects.
Projects include house wiring, service of large
appliances, telephone circuits, motor winding and
large electric motors. They also worked with
programmable controllers and semi conductor
projects. They installed 3-phase motors and did
rewinding on 3 phase motors. Trouble shooting of
electrical circuits was also a part of the program.

Structure Of Metals
Learned In Foundry
The sophomore foundry students worked on small
projects like making book ends, trivits and wall
decorations like eagles or ships.
They were taught how to make a mold and howto cut
out riser spquts. The riser is a hole where the metal is
poured into the mold. They were also taught how to
mix the sand so it would be right for the metal being
poured. Instruction included how to melt and pourthe
molten metals that range from 1200-2000 degrees.
The juniors and seniors were combined for the
foundry major. They do more advanced and
complicated molds than the sophomore students They
also use different types of metals ranging from iron to
bronze. In addition they learned how to make high
quality products with the least amount of defects.
Pattern and foundry were combined due to Mr.
Phillip Coquillette's retirement in the spring of 1985,
and for a broader look at foundry and patttern.
