DeZURIK Replaces Half-Century Old Tool for Local Students

A shop tool from the original Sartell High School is again ready to serve students. The machine, a vertical mill, was in relative disrepair until DeZURIK stepped up and paid for a technician to repair and upgrade the machine.

In addition to returning the tool to working order, a digital screen was added. The addition allows for accuracy to the 1,000th of an inch to be seen on a digital screen instead of reading a dial.

Other than the digital screen, the basic machine design has not changed much in 50 years, according to technology education teacher Nick Phillips. A new machine costs about $18,000.
