It makes the majors look bad and they know it. Its also one of the reasons Amsoil and Schafferís use the same lab as I do. BS wasnít getting the slates that helped their case. And even though I am suspicious if their motives, they arenít wrong.

Thanks for the perspective, I'll plan ahead this time and not take the T6 past 10k. I'll pm you for some oil.

Tribology is the study of surfaces in relative motion, friction, wear, and Lubrication regimes. Its an under served in the Engineering educational system in the US. Auburn currently is the only university that has a tribo undergraduate degree. Most universities ME degree plans have a small focus in it, but its not very thorough. Auburns tribo Program is only a few years old, too. Germany alone has dozens of tribo programs. But, as ISO 55001 becomes more sought after and predictive and proactive maintenance is implemented, the need for more tribology focused engineers will have more universities release programs.

ME from Cullen at UofH here, and I donít even remember the word tribology from school. Tells you how much they cover it.

Can you send me info on the sample kits?

My mentor has two PHDs in chemistry and tribology from Harvard and another Ivy League school respectivel. He ran Mobils program for 30 years. Colleges all over the world have him do ME and CE graduate work with students. So he started doing surveys, and collecting data. He found that less than 2 hours is spent on it on average in undergrad programs in the US. Its his life mission to help change that. Theres a doctor that does research at MIT thatís also trying to change the culture. Dr Rabinowitz, I believe. Unfortunately, US manufacturing is behind. But, its a good thing for me. Lots of opportunity.
