A Comparative Study of Teacher Education Institutions and Machine Tool Manufacturers to Determine Course Content for a Machine Tool Maintenance Course in the Woodworking Area.
Polette, Douglas Lee
To determine what type of maintenance training the prospective industrial arts teacher should receive in the woodworking area and how this information should be taught, a research instrument was constructed using information obtained from a review of relevant literature. Specific data on machine tool maintenance was gathered by the use of two questionnaires, one sent to industrial arts teachers educators and the other sent to manufacturers of power woodworking tools that are in use in the industrial arts facility. An analysis of this data provided information for the recommendation of content in the area of power wood-working machine maintenance, methods of presenting maintenance information, maintenance responsibility, records, condition of equipment and maintenance budgets. Various agreements and disagreements between industry and educators concerning maintenance instruction are discussed. Conclusions reached are that: (1) non-technical operating knowledge should be integrated into the curriculum; (2) technical details should be taught in a separate course; (3) the future teacher of industrial arts should receive maintenance training; and (4) although most schools spend an adequate amount on equipment maintenance, few have all their equipment in excellent working order.
