Default 2018 Metalshaping classes in the US

Well guys there is not going to be any classes in the US this Year

After trying twice and providing all the paper work that the US consulate asked for ...I was denied the visa again I am sure that things have changed from when I first started my trips to the US
I would have liked to come over and demonstrate some of my new toys that I have developed for my wheeling machine (and others). At this stage unless things change it's not looking too good.
Peter

This is truly absurd. Did they give a reason for the denial?

Hate to hear it's not going well, Peter.

To try to stay on AMS-topic, I'll just say Its an insane time. At some point, reality has to matter.

If you think there's anything I can do to help you be here, I'm more than willing to help. Might not be able to do much, but I'll do what I can.

What's the point in guessing?

Well that sucks, I was looking forward to some more instruction. Maybe another reminder, " You've got to open that f(*ker up, mate"
I'm really puzzled by this, we constantly have contractors here in the plant doing all sorts of work, from machinery installation to software work. None from Australia, that I am aware of, but certainly several European countries, Brazil and even China. WTF? Not sure what they are doing different than you, wish I did. Good Luck

Don't you need to perform warranty repairs on equipment you've already sold here?

All the shipment to the US invoices + the invoices of the people that makes for me all the components of the wheeling machine and Pneumatic hammers and dies was not good enough
