Training & Fabrication

As a former corporate employee of the world's largest took & equipment supplier I did extensive training of end users in automotive repair shops and instructors at technical schools on the theory and use of high end electronic systems for wheel balance, wheel alignment and tire service, utilizing imaging technology.  I was also involved in training uses on electronic frame measuring systems for collision that worked on ultra sound location technology. I produced videos and fabricated training aids along with materials for trade shows in Orlando, Fl.

Training is always important to prevent vehicle failures, as in the video above.

Later, working for a lift manufacture I also made videos to assist installers and fabricated items for a variety of needs.

The video above is the shake-down test for an equipment/materials elevator that I built to move furnishings and appliances up to the second floor of a house I have in Illinois.   Not all the bracing is welded in yet, and only 75% of the welds are finished.  If the unit can lift my target weight in the test, it would hold up when completed and I'd be sure it could lift what I needed.

The photos below show the Elevator in place at the house in Illinois.  Note the slope of the driveway and that the braces are in place now and it is bolted to the decking.
