Stiles Machinery and Madison College recently held their third and final lunch and learn seminar for the 2013-14 school year. Stiles’ team of solid wood experts included Chuck Carter, David Hise, and Dave Schmidt.

The all-day seminar included presentations on the rough mill, tool room setup, profile knife grinding, tooling, and moulder applications. The seminar was attended by individuals from several companies as well as current program students. In the words of one participant: “Thank you for allowing industry into your classroom for the Stiles presentation yesterday. This was beneficial for myself but I cannot express enough how awesome this is that you are exposing the students to these kinds of learning opportunities. They had exposure to things yesterday that took me 25 years in the industry to have exposure to. That is great for the future of our industry to have your students exposed to that type of information.”

We are grateful to Stiles for their continued support and willingness to partner with us to present these high quality programs at no cost for attendees. Previous programs have included Veneering and Overlays, and the ever popular Sanding & Finishing Seminar held each fall.
