Whoops. A file name brain fart. Sorry but apparently those interested managed to figure it out.
One of my students who was a great help on this project was a sophomore when we started. He is now a senior and wasn't sure he would see the thing work before he graduated. It is not that the project is so difficult, or that we are so slow (although there is a bit of that) but there is so much to do during the school day it is tough to get a project done in the same timely fashion that might be achieved in a shop where there aren't kids to be taught.
Just got back from Cabin Fever and the bender was a great success. It drew a great deal of interest and I gave out the plans web link to many fellows.
