High Schools here in Australia still have all the “manual arts’’ as they are called here… I know because the neighbors kid wanted some timber for a turned table and I gave him some NGR and PH and he was the envy of all the other kids with their pine…. I also have had enquires for the Torque Workcentre from various teachers and schools in Brisbane… so they are still doing a lot for the Vocational/Technical trade courses… also a big push for apprenticeships here in OZ… there was a slump for a while and now the country reallises that more trade people are required to actually run the country…. or stop it from stopping… lol
