I want to clarify a couple of items related to the previous email sent on 12/20/2013.  

  1. The tools/items that are required for the CDE need to be brought with you.
  2. Electrode size needs to be 1/8" diameter for 6011 and 7018.
  3. The traditional L-shaped framing square will be much more useful that a "speed" square.
  4. You should bring at least one hammer.  A 16 oz hammer will suffice at Area but you will need a larger hammer at state (3 lb).  You are welcome to bring multiple tapes, hammers, squares for the team activity.
Thank you,
