    Default Rockford IL Rebuilding class set - August 18 - 22, 2019

    I want to let all know, I will be teaching a scraping / rebuilding class in Rockford IL at Bourn & Koch one of the last new machine builder left in the USA . August 18 - 22. I invite any of you You Tubers to attend. Shoot me a note if you need more info. As many of you know many of your members have already taken the classes and can be watched if you search my name and scraping on You Tube.

    I would love to teach a class at Cashes plant and see those huge grinders he has. Also he has employee's who scraped for Mattison Grinders and would love to see their methods.

    At B&K class we did in 2017 I asked their employee who had worked their fr 30 years to come over and tell the class how he scraped. LOL I was surprised when he said BIAX scrapers were for roughing only. I used to say that too, back in the 70's. But once you learn to use them correctly, you can scrape 20 PPI blindfolded almost, 40 PPI with lots of practice and 65 PPI if you challenge yourself. No need to scrape anything that good, but I have seen students do it.

    If someone has a hardship, on a fixed income and want to attend any of my classes but can't attend because of $ issues please ask me if we can make special arrangements. Thanks....Rich

    Just took the 3 day class in Springfield VT but wished I had more time to learn. This one sounds super cool, i'll be saving my money and watching my vacation time as this gets closer. Would be awesome if I could make it to this one too.

    Also, hoping you write a book

    We had 2 students register today and send in their deposit. Still need 6 more...The students who have attended a basic class, come and jump right into a project or advanced class. I'll see if B&K can have their inspection department break out their ball bar and laser and show everyone how they work.

    I made a typo when I did the first post. Class is M-F August 19 - 23, 2019. We have 9 students so far and room for 1 more. I am accepting 3 day students now but the class will be 5 days. Lots of Q&A's, hands on teaching, so you will be able to hand scrape, power scrape, basic alignment and machine rebuilding. Class starts on Monday August 19 at 8:00 AM. If you would like to attend let me know. If you really want to take the class and have some hardships, let me know and I will see what we can do. [email protected]

    We have 8 students now. Cash is sending one of his apprentices. Thanks Cash for the compliment when you have Original Mattison Journeymen working for you and they could teach them too. I have seen this before when companies Journeyman are to busy to teach. I will do my best so he can slide right in to work with them. I have done this with B&K assemblers. They take the 5 day class and help their Journeyman and all he has to do is show them where to scrape. :-)

    One of my references on my website:

    "Ever since you instructed our first group of rebuilders, we have had numerous requests to have you back to instruct the remaining rebuilders. Your ability to adjust your class to fit our needs left a lasting impression.
    Even though our rebuilders are experienced at scraping, they learned new techniques to improve accuracy and efficiency. The rebuilders had a lot of praise regarding the class and recognized your expertise as you worked along side them.
    I strongly recommend King Way ... seminar for instruction in Basic 40/40 Hand and Advanced Machine scraping. It is excellent for anyone who is doing machine rebuilding or slide retrofitting."
