    Maybe someone the attendence office needs a new string?

    As far as I know my professor isn't an archer. He lives in the city as far as I know.

    I know, I know.
    Now as far as what classes that I'm taking that have a professor teaching them, the answer is all. It is college you know. LOL Now about shooting time, maybe later. I've got to get working on my 6-7 page Persuasion(Argument) paper for English 101. Yes, I'm going to be a machinist, but I guess I need to know how to write a 6-7 page research paper. LOL

    Mine was a machine shop manager at one time, and I don't know how many years he has been in the machining field. He is very knowledgeable and helpful. I couldn't ask for a better instructor.
    I am also taking Algebra/Trig. Did you have to take Trig too?

    Yeah, there are many things that I need to get, and the machinist's handbook is definitely one of them. I also still have to get a micrometer as well.

    Yeah, I've discovered that quality machining tools are pricey. At least the shop has the tools so I don't have to get everything right now.
