Carl’s Teaching Handouts (Demos, Jigs & Tools)

I put all of my Teaching Handouts here on the same page to make it easier to search for what you want.

This is the stuff that was on my old web site under the “Demos” and “Jigs & Tools” main menu items. Plus any new stuff that I have added after 9/15/2020.
