I will admit this was my first exposure to the written word on the machines and machining. As it was my high school text book, at the cooperative high school I went to. We got the academics of a regular school in two weeks a month, and spent the other two weeks in the shop classes of the area we choose as a career path direction. We had two student bodies shift A and shift B.

After 3 semesters if they thought you were qualified, you got a job in industrial at the prevailing wage rates for helpers or beginners. Which was a lot more that bagging stuff at the local food mart. But enough of history!
