Topic: Sad to report Rod Roseling has passed away
Posted: Friday, March 25, 2016 10:30:11 AM
My dar husband Rod passed away on March 18 in his sleep. I miss him so very much. I found that he came to this forum and I wanted to let everyone know. He was an Insutrial Arts teacher at Madera High School in Madera CA for over 26 years teaching mostly woodshop which was his love.

His Celebration of Life service will be on April 23rd at 11:00 am at Sierra Pines Church 40855 Covey Ct Oakhurst CA 93644.

If you have any stories about ROd, I would love to hear about them. We were married for 21 fabulous years and my heart is breaking at his loss.

Thank you for being his friends,

His loving wife, Mary

I used to be real regular on here, but just got out of the habit. There never was a lot of posting as I had there would be.

Have gotten some good info and appreciated the work that Tom did with his powerpoints.

There are still some woodworking in our area but most is construction training.

J.Marquart -- congratulations on the retirement. I hope it will allow you to relax and enjoy -- I know that Colorado teachers retire after 30 years with 75 of their salary. Calif uses the number of years times a mulitplication factor based on your age.

I treat the project just like a text book. I check the wood out to them and they must return it in a usable condition. If they ruin a piece wood they are charged for it. If at the end of the project, it is done in such a manner it can be sold -- they are off the for buying it. If it is not, just like they ruined a text book they pay.

Okay, so after having set up the Sawstops (no mention of tape on units) they are a well made saw. They are easy to use with their safety system. Even though I feel I covered safety very well, this has just put my mind a little more at ease.But I still know and hear when the saw is not cutting right. Just because you don't know what goes on inside of a mind.

My only disappointment is that the saws are not American Made.

Will have two Sawstops -- which the students will use -- I need to keep one of my old saws for cutting up junk wood as I would hate to have a Sawstop misfire.

This society is taking away from people accepting responsibility for there actions -- and instead want to blame every one else.

Topic: High school Math Teacher looking to transition into a Wood Shop Teacher
Posted: Thursday, July 31, 2014 12:20:28 PM
I am glad you are considering Industrial Education. First I woukd suggest you spend time in several shop settings. It is totally different than math, english etc. classes.

The skills needed: 1. You need to be mechanically inclined. 2. You need to be able to deal with multiple
Items and still be aware of everything else going on in the classroom at the same time.

Another thing to consider, is a program called Project Lead The Way (PLTW). You will need to research it and talk to your principal asit does take a committment -- it can lead to a multi year program.

Last, you need to contact the state credentialing agency for specific requirements for adding supplements to yourcredential.
Topic: Radial arm saws?
Posted: Thursday, March 20, 2014 11:32:51 PM
I use the radial arm saw all the time -- we use it cut long boards down and to make final length cuts on boards less that 12" wide -- it is a great tool for that

Many years ago I also used it for cutting angles -- it was fine until - my co workers wanted to do the same and they tore up the table by not using common sense -- so I made it cross cut only --

for the intended purpose of cross cutting, I find it one of the safest tools to use.
Topic: Roll Call
Posted: Saturday, February 8, 2014 11:13:23 AM
I am looking at getting 84 percent or better on my retirement -- I sometimes wish I wouldn't have taken time off to do other things -- but hindsight comes too late -- if I had those extra years from taking time off from teaching -- I would be done this year. I really don't plan on picking up a part time job (substituting, Walmart etc) just putz around home building stuff to sell at my own pace.
