Showcase Video

Content: The top 3 things I learned from this showcase were:

  • How to fabricate an Aeroquip 303 hydraulic line
  • How to use the tools involved in fabricating the line such as the mandrel, the vice clamp, and the combination of the screwdriver and wrench
  • Failure is part of learning

One thing I would have done differently is that I would have more thoroughly dug into how to fabricate the line before picking up my tools

Social/Emotional: One thing I am most proud of by completing this showcase is:

The one thing I am most proud of is that despite catastrophic failure, I managed to finish the project successfully.
