“Why Dirt Sticks”
Dirt sticks to the surface of the product or oozes out of blind holes. You can’t coat it or plate it or assemble it.  You certainly can’t sell it to customers. Your customers are waiting and getting grouchy.  Never fear! Barbara will explain why dirt sticks to parts (especially in Southern California), how to fix the problem, and maybe even avoid it. And, because you've had a really tough day and a big dinner, she will make sure you stay awake and keep you laughing. Ed K. (the Rocket Scientist) will also be available to answer your questions; we’d love to see you.
