I know nothing about plasma cutters and little about repairning Jeeps; I am a veterinarian. I fix animals, but..... My 13 year-old granddaughter, Elizabeth, and I were talking about her school. She has an ag class in a small town, 1,300 people, in Kansas. Since I am a veterinarian, Elizabeth has been exposed to the animal part of ag but not the shop part. She has found she likes welding, but she said she didn't like the plasma cutter. I said, "You've got a plasma cutter??????"
They have a plasma cutter in ag class and 13 year-olds are learning how to use it. I said, "I want to be in your ag class!" I was amazed. After that, I told her about you all fixing everything related to Jeeps and trucks.
There is a vintage car restoration program, http://www.mcpherson.edu/autorestoration/
, at a college in McPherson, Kansas, about 13 miles away from Inman, and I told her I was sure a lot of plasma cutting went on restoring and replacing damaged metal on those old cars and trucks. I am trying get her to enjoy using the unit. Her problem is/was she couldn't figure out just why it is a great machine.
As you can see, I don't have a project here, I just wanted to tell the experts about my 13 year-old granddaughter who is trying to learn to use a plasma cutter in Kansas. I thought it was pretty amazing that they are exposing kids that young to these great units. That's light years from what I got in ag decades ago!!
