 This is a Skeleton. When a company stamps out the parts that they need, the left over pieces are usually sold for scrap metal or donated to a school.

When learning to weld, the students start with small welding coupons and these skeletons had the perfect size leftovers in them!

The students learn how to use the plasma cutter and torch while cutting the coupons out of the skeletons.

The metal goes through several cycles of being welded and cut apart before we send them to the scrap yard.
