Traveling Woodworking Shop Tours Schools (Nov, 1938)

Traveling Woodworking Shop Tours Schools

Making the rounds of schools and playgrounds in Pasadena, Calif., is a complete woodworking shop on wheels. Built on a truck chassis, it includes a circular saw and band saw, lathe, electric drill and small planer. Its power is taken by a long cord from the regular 110-volt circuit of whatever school ground the truck visits. It is equipped for model building and for teaching handicraft work in schools lacking workshops of their own.

    Look at the little girl standing and watching the bandsaw 3 feet away from it. Also, no goggles for anyone. When I was in HS shop class back in 89 the teacher was fanatical about their use and would go nuts if he caugh you without them. He’ll have a heart attack if he saw this.

    I have a feeling that guy can only count to 4 using the fingers on both his hands.
