Grand Rapids Minnesota "mini regional"
Randy is opening up his shop for an informal event.
Things that will be covered, along with a shop tour, are water-based finish and how the shop is setup to maximize the productivity of my finish. Also want to cover some troubleshooting and standard operations. We will go over spray equipment, sanding, drying, environmental challenges, etc.
Also Federated Insurance will do a train the trainer on forklift certification, lockout tagout, and shop safety.
Also, will have an edgebander tech go over a maintenance schedule, making improvements to your bander for better results, maybe run a PUR job.
This will be a total hands-on event. Bring your work clothes.
Lastly lets make this also a fun event! Thinking all meals some sort of potluck and bring your own drinks! Randy has plenty of grills for BBQ. Maybe some rootbeer floats and smores over the evening bonfire. Northern Minnesota is a great place to bring your family or escape for a long weekend. Lots of lakes for fishing or cruising, great offroading lots of golf courses, mountain bike trails galore. Bring your family and make it a work trip!!
