    There is a automotive shop owner who only asks two questions to an applicant...How many thousands in an inch? In four words describe the operation of a four cycle engine? My answer .....It all depends who is buried in Grants tomb....and Suck,Squeeze,Bang,Blow. He laughed so hard he had tears in his eyes.He said it was bad that I was not looking for a job.

    Mr. Howard and my Mr. Flanders must have gone to the same schools, same with Prof Hill, and Mr, Emms.

    Tough shop teachers, but you knew you were going to learn from them. And if you tried hard they gave you a chance to work the problems out.
    Hardest B's I ever earned, came from them.
    And safety was always first, both had spotless safety records.
    Everyone that learned from them still had all of their fingers at the end of the school year.

    Glad to hear that SlideRule, something to be proud of.
