    Looks like a good time. Wish I lived a bit closer.

    Any chance the new 19e rotary can fall in a box that just so happens to have my shipping address on it? Lol

    Hmm.... if there were a chance a LHR 19E Rotary Polisher was going to leave Colorado it will probably be in my suitcase.

    ***Update***


    Andre let me know there are only 2 more spaces left in this class.

    Here's the pictures from the last class Jason and I taught together, click the link and you'll see that our classes are totally hands-on, zero to very little sitting.

    The Colorado class will be the same way. Intensely hands-on.
