Ken's presentation included polishing pivots.
Last but not least, a picture of the classroom and students.
The class was made of NAWCC Chapter 21 members and clock repair and former/graduate students at Emily Griffith Technical College. A very diverse class. The workshop provided all abilities with information they could use. A very successful workshop.
