Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

Me: Hey, Do you watch My Little Pony?
Mentor: Yeah! You might as well ask who doesn't watch it, you would get less people answering that way.


Shop mentor: "He kept wandering around the shop whining about how he wanted a mountain dew so I figured I better bring some and some candy bars to keep him working and not wandering the halls whining."

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

So we were polishing parts to be anodized, and while polishing the mecanum wheel plates, we had this little conversation.

Me "Hey, we should chrome plate these."
Second mentor(Middle aged) "They actually nickle plate nowadays."
Third mentor(young) "We should get spinners for them."

As the second mentor is walking out of the room:
"I'll get you some pinwheels from the dollar store."

We laughed for five minutes.

Re: "Quotes" that were said during build season

"I didn't know the role of mentor included Ballast..."

One of our mentors was helping a student use the sheet metal cutter but the student didn't have enough weight to finish the cut and the mentor helped with that. His wife made this comment

Including an "annoying" mentor who happens to be one of the most frequent and experienced members on this forum with 7,000 posts.

Good job.

Me, seeing the large chip in it: How did you manage that?

Mentor: I cut it

Me: How?

Mentor: The table saw

The only tablesaw there is, is set up for cutting wood, with a wood blade.
