I just signed up for my Fall 2009 Classes.  Instead of going further with the electronics classes, those are put on hold for the semester.  I’ve signed up for two metalworking classes; Millwright Theory & Metalcraft 1 at the local community college.  These should teach me the basics of the lathe, mill, grinder, drill press and layout work for metalworking.  They sound like a blast and I am looking forward to their start in mid-September.
