Brothers weld last part of Portland, Oregon, rail line
The Oregonian
After fusing 2,549 seams along about 30 miles of rail between Portland and Milwaukie, Oregon, brothers Arnulfo and Octavio Zavala on Nov. 18 connected the final section of TriMet's MAX Orange Line. "Welding. Grinding. Welding some more. Connecting rails. Building switches," said Octavio Zavala, 50, as a cloud of steam from a molten, orange-and-white weld swallowed him. "We've been doing this for two years."

US manufacturing expands, but may be losing speed
Reuters
U.S. manufacturing output rose modestly in October as motor vehicle production fell for a third straight month, suggesting some slowing in economic growth at the start of the fourth quarter. But growth remains relatively sturdy, with other data Nov. 17 showing a rebound in factory activity in New York state this month. "While the solid outlook for the U.S. economy remains, there are, however, mounting downside risks to growth this quarter," said Harm Bandholz, chief U.S. economist at UniCredit Research in New York.

This 3-D welder could bring metal 3-D printing to the masses
Gizmodo
Three-dimensional printing in its current guise is kind of cool, but also limited by its use of plastic — there's only so many combs you can print before you get bored. An affordable 3-D printer that uses metal would be a major step up in practicality, which is exactly what this team is hoping to achieve by mating a MIG welder to a conventional 3-D printer.

Nevada provides test case in debate over a skills gap
The New York Times
A test case involving the middle-skills gap is about to play out on a patch of scrubby desert just outside Reno, Nevada. This is where Tesla, the automaker, has decided to situate its "gigafactory" to build lithium batteries for its cars. The project will employ up to 6,500 people. When Tesla announced Nevada as the home for its huge high-tech plant, the state’s governor, Brian Sandoval, said the move would "change Nevada forever." But some economists have questioned whether Nevada, which for decades has been tied to the dwindling casino industry, can provide enough qualified workers to operate complicated machinery in the Tesla plant.

Wood shop and welding giving Norwood, Colorado, students real experience
The Norwood Post
At the end of last year, when Norwood (Colorado) School’s seniors completed an exit survey, they reported they were lacking hands-on activities in their four-year high school experience — classes like auto mechanics, wood shop and welding. Jon Hubbard’s moved to town and started teaching wood shop and welding class, changing that for many students in ninth through 12th grade. "The kids are loving the class, girls and boys both," said Norwood School principal Merry Martin. "We need more hands-on learning for our kids, and Jon makes it so real-life. These are skills that all kids need, whether they want to go into a trade or not. We hope to be able to expand on this program in the future."
