    Default CarveWright and Rockler

    This could be a great opportunity for the STARTU member to get associated with your local Rockler store and see if they might need/want any help with their in store demos.

    I asked Joe what kind of training had been done with Rockler and he stated that "They have been provided with very little training. We are supplying them with some basic instruction on running demos, and they are creating some of their own training material, but users are encouraged to go introduce yourselves and help out in any way you wish."

    I am still waiting for a reply I sent to my local store manager and if I do not here anything by early next week I will probably just give them a call.

    You can find the store contacts at http://www.rockler.com/retail/stores

    Keep us posted on what you find out.

    I have often wondered why it is that
    Conservatives are called the "right" and Liberals are called the "left".
    "The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of
    the fool to the left."

    I'm familiar with the people at my local Rockler store. I've written an email saying that I will try to make it to the demo this coming Saturday just to see what's going on. Perhaps they can use me as a source for custom pattern making. I just got a job doing pre-press stuff at a package printing company that's in the process of expanding, so I don't know how much time I'll have to create patterns. But I'll definitely do a few here and there.

    It is good to hear some have already made some contact with their local stores. My store is about 60 miles away so I am relying on email contact for setting up helping out for the demo. Another opportunity that might be out there is their class room training sessions they do every weekend for other wood working skill building. With this being their introduction of the machine for their customers and employees it might also be an avenue to being an in store instructor. If you already have your own local CW user base who might want/need training that could be a good draw for both you and the store.

    I was cam here to ask about this - thanks for the address Floyd. There is a store in Ontario, a few miles from the place I get my wood in Fontana, about 40 miles. I will try to contact them.

    Here is a listing of Rockler stores and their locations. The Rockler personnel have been given minimum training, but provided with demonstration documentation and materials. You might reach out to your Rockler store and let them know you are a CarveWright customer. They may or may not ask for your assistance, but this does sound like a great opportunity for START U members to offer training to new owners.
