I have ben threatening to retire for heck, 5 years or so. I can't afford to retire. LOL

Teaching in Minnesota has saved me as the driving and flying for hours on hours was burning me out. I have had a nice time going out my back door and walking 150 feet to my shop. It has been a Godsend as I can teach and not get burnt out. Traveling for 40 years and living out of a suitcase was no fun. I have seen and done some amazing things but now that I am semi retired at age 71 I am pretty happy. I talked it over with my wife of 47 years and have picked some dates in 2022 that I can devote to teaching classes this year that I love to teach.

I would change locations and teach more in other places, but You would need to organize it. - I would like to go to Springfield, VT where Warren Jones had planned a class in 2020 and 2021 but because of Covid, we had to cancel them. I am open to travel anywhere to teach, but as I said I would prefer to stay in Minnesota. I will keep the cost the same as I the 2020 for the MN classes. Students can always ask for help or consulting free of charge. Many of my Students have You Tube shows - Search - Richard King Scraping- and there is dozens of wonderful shows. I will continue to write here giving advise as Practical Machinist is family.

Thanks, Rich
