Something new I learned at work today…
Did you know, that a cast saw uses vibrations to cut instead of spinning like a regular saw? I sure didn’t. When I saw the casting technician turn on the saw and run it across her hand I was a little surprised. I know casting saws don’t cut through skin, but I wasn’t sure how they actually prevented that. When the tech told me it was the vibrations that caused the saw to cut through the fiberglass, I became more curious. So I read some articles on it, and watched her do another cast removal. If you’re still curious on how it works or want to watch a video, click the button below. Thanks for reading about my random bit of knowledge!

Today I started my last semester before I earn my associates degree. I started this small journey many years ago, before the military. I have two classes to complete then I will be on my way towards a Bachelors degree. I am more than excited to finish up these classes. It is a little strange because they are both online, but there are pros and cons to this. I think the pros would be, not having to drive to campus and pay for parking. The cons would definitely be, not having that student/teacher interaction and help with material. I know this is a learning curve for professors, students and the families. Don’t lose hope, just stay focused and positive!
The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet.
