Nick was a victim of the poor economy. He and SS parted ways amicably.
His old videos are still on the SS site, though.

Default thanks

Thanks Gene thats too bad as his training session were great entertainment and even instructional sometimes! I will miss that I hope SS realizes that to be a life long partner training is paramount.

Unless I am mistaken, all training has ceased. No more Traveling Academy or classes at SS HQ in Dayton. That and the elimination of the live demo's are really going to make it difficult for them to grab the next generation of SS users.

Hi Major Bob,

I have been giving this some thought, and I am thinking that, after the Power Pro headstock is introduced, we may once again see the demo's at the fairs and home shows! Maybe it is just wishful thinking on my part, but it wood make sense.

Hi guys,

Major Bob! Thanks for your service to our great country! I wish you well!

On the other note here has anyone seen or heard from Nick? Did he leave any contact information?

Bob (non major!)
