Guys things are getting grim at South Seattle Comm. Coll. The deans and chancellors are starting to think of uses for the machine shop building. If we don't get a program installed there soon, the shop will be liquidated.
FYI The machining program was canceled last spring after many years of under enrollment. This lack of students can be attributed almost completely to the instructor at the time. He would do nothing to bring in students and would refuse to let people take his classes if he didn't think they were "serious" about being a machinist
We need somebody willing to teach an evening basic machine shop program. It will be run under continuing education. Pay is not great, but you do get to be in charge of an outrageously well equipped machine shop. I would teach it myself, but it has been too many years since I was a prototype machinist at Purdue. Plus they will never let me teach welding and machining at the same time.
If you are interested, or know somebody who could be tricked, I mean convinced, to do this, please contact me.
