Beginners Machine Polishing - KDS Gillingham - Date tbc

Hi Guys,

Been around DW for a while and bought my 2004 Tourer up about as far as I can without picking up some polishing muscle, but really been struggling to find some courses for newbies...Seems that the further North you head the more choices open up but tbh I'd rather do something locally and I'm sure that I'm not the only one

I know that the only local training is from Kelly at KDS, but imo the next course would be too advanced for me, although once I've got the basics sorted I would definitely attend one.

See later post from Kelly at KDS - he has said he'll run a course for us newbies, just need to get the numbers

So, if you would be interested in adding your name for a course introducing newbies to machine polishing add your name below:

Is there any thought if this does go ahead, where would this Event be placed, and more importantly who the trainer will be.

It' a bit of long shot this one, the thing is can we make it work.

There's more viewings on this thread, and less replys.

I feel we might be better off attending the KDS event, I know it will a advance course for the day, and all areas will be covered, but you can't get better than Kelly.

I know if I attended the course I would struggle a bit, that's normal, Everyone has a different learning curve and how quick they can pick up things from a training course.

so here's a thing,

IF you get around 15-30 guys that want this then i WILL go a head and sort out a date and training plan for you guys

simple as that.

What i will do is envolve ALL the KDS staff , so we can put you into groups and lay out the training panels i have .

we have 5 different panels 10 rotarys etc , this way you will all get time on actual machine correction time.

maybe even on a car too

how does that sound
