Operating as usual
Fort Scott Welding has put in some miles this year, going to some competitions. Beloit, Chanute, and Hutchison. Each contest has presented its own challenges, but we have walked away with more knowledge then when we started!
Welding classes have broadened their welding skills to more difficult welds. Some students are a little more photogenic than others.
Here are some videos of the student moving some metal. In comments are some more videos of the students.
Part of our intro class we have gone over woods metal and soon to be plastics. We were able to bring back the old days of moving metal with heat and arm strength. The kids really enjoyed getting to hammer on the metal!!
Our construction class has been building some doghouses this spring. We have made them as real as possible to building a full size house as possible. The students made their plans to scale and made a materials list for their projects. Each group had to manufacture their own trusses for the houses. They are not complete but they are getting closer with each work day!! The houses are insulated with at least one window and a covered opening.
I have been a little behind on things this year but here is the shilled mechanical crafts kids building some signs and cutting boards. A lot of projects were taken home before I could get pictures. If you have a picture of a project your child made please leave in comments. every student worked extremely hard on their projects to turn out some really good ones!!
We still have an hour left before the doors close. Come see us at the middle school commons area.
Tiger Construction I has been busy getting ready for the Fall Extravaganza at FSMS. Please come see us!!!
Welding II class has been busy making some fall decorations. They are selling these to help buy some new equipment for the welding shop. Pumpkins are $25 and turkeys are $30. We have more pumpkins than turkeys. We are sold out of turkeys!
These three students represented Fort Scott in a big way. We received the results of the state Skills USA competition we competed in last week. We placed 7th out of 9 teams. For their first year of competing in a competition where they were required to read blueprints and build what was on the prints, they did fanstastic. We are extremely excited to see how next year goes when we have and more time to perfect our skills and a better idea of what is expected!! Even though it was extremely difficult they still walked out with smiles on their faces. Fantastic job!!!
SOLD The Tiger Construction class has decided to sell the storage shed they built this year. The dimensions are 10’ wide and 16’ long. The floor joists, wall studs, and trusses are all on 16” on center. The door opening is 5’ wide and 6’ tall. The inside wall height is 6’8” with an open ceiling making the inside peak around 11’. Overall height is close to 12’ tall. SOLD
