    Re: amf

    I went to AMF school in Shelby, Ohio.(85) I have heard from a couple friends who have gone to Stahl's Seventy's.

    If you are already familiar with the machines they say that Stahl's is pretty good. You would probablly see many aftermarket applications as well.

        Mike's right. Stahl's is more geared to those who have some experience. They jump right into electrical controls such as cams and relays. Their practical portions of the course have you adjusting and repairing machines in actual real-world use.
        They lack, however, in sub-component assembly instruction (table drives, sweep links, shuttle operators), but if this is a concern, write down questions before going and ask. Jamie will help you with anything.
