So, some of you have kept up with my shit show of a personal life and can understand why I was not doing clinics for a while. Also, I have had to adapt and research to changes in our boxes as what worked 10 yrs ago may not work now; ex would be using old bearings. I have secured a source for new bearings and have verified in many builds that they are robust, and to factory spec, so they can be easily installed. Thus, I am able to once again start offering clinics as my time allows.

I have discussed it with Scotty B and he has graciously offered up his new shop near Richmond, VA as a venue for the clinic. It is within half a days drive for me so it is doable without me missing days from my day job that pays my bills. As soon as I get more time off saved up I will look into doing other clinics around the country, and Canada (yo, Mark!).

So, how does this go? Since there are a lot of new folks on here, click on the links in my sig below to see how we have done these in the past. I am keeping the cost the same ($300/head and 18 and below are free, free to spectate, take pics, etc), but expect to buy new bearing sets off of me. If you insist on using old bearings, I will not warranty that they will last. The more people that we get bearing sets, the cheaper for everyone. Not sure what I will cut off the class size at, I haven't been to Scotty's shop yet to see and will talk more with him as we have done them at his old place in the past and he is savvy.

When? Towards the end of the year is the earliest. Early Dec is looking like a possibility.

Lets see what interest we can generate!

Also, I am always willing to do a clinic here at my shop in OH, 43160. However, I am planning to sell the house/barn and move to the city and I am not sure I will have such a luxurious structure to do such things at in the future. (Divorce is a bitch!).

Guys from LA and NorCal have contacted me privately, they are needing/wanting, and I would love to meet that need as soon as I can. I just need to time off of work.

Washington, Mr242 has lit the fire and you are on my radar.

Canada, I can drive it in a day and Mark has a great place to host (and he just basically kicks ass).

Any others wanna throw their location in as a possible?

Post up here if interested, PM me if very serious and I will assemble a list of parts purchasers so I can see about getting a group discount from my suppliers. Man, I missed doing these (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

This is welcome news!

For anyone not knowing the value, expertise, and beer drinking abilities of the kind Dr., just do a search.

If need a box, there you go.

Great to see you doing this again! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/aktion035.gif)

Sweet! I just redid a box earlier this year watching each chapter of your video about 100 times to make sure I wasn't screwing something up, but I'd still like to do this in person. Count me as definitely interested.

I’d be interested in attending. I have a 902/1 box to freshen up for the 68 911 I am building. Since it came with the tub when I bought it, I have no clue as to the condition. Where is Scotty’s in Virginia? My oldest son went to Virginia Tech and that was about 12 hours from here in central Vermont.

A little East of Richmond off of I-64. My son's at Tech now and I was just there last weekend for the Clemson game (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif) ...nowhere near Tech.

If you come back here I suggest some place other than the far side of Shelton.

So, the far side of Shelton keeps the riff raff out. Gotcha. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/happy11.gif)

Texas is a definite possibility. Its a big state, though, so where?

As for where in VA, I only know where his old shop was in Charles City (IIRC) and his new place is near that. I sent him a message letting him know I opened this can of worms so he can chime in with particulars on that.

Most of the TX members are in San Antonio. Austin, Houston or the DFW area. Austin is the most convenient and central of those being 188 from DFW, 160 from Houston and 78 from San Antonio. I see TY75's in you future Doc. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/hide.gif)

Well a Shelon location is better than what Kevin offered!
I can help by housing Dr. Evil, don't have a shop place other than Shelton. So who's offering a spot in the Seattle area?

Dude, I would love to do an Austin one and have contacts there (non 914). Always need a place to do it and an agreement on trading service and goods for the rent. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Another 'yes' for one in Texas! My shop is available for use, but I'm up in the panhandle, which wouldn't be much help for the folks down south.

Just so you know mark, I offered my place if no one else stepped up prior to you and mike deciding upon Shelton. We clear on that one?
