    Because I am running a training program for opticians and I need to be able to teach them how to use this resource without impacting our limited budget too greatly.

    KB get it on disc, then they can all use in one closed circut class room. Besides how long can it take to teach someone how to look through a catalogue? Small children with practically no education used to be able to handle the Sears version. Maybe even today's opticians could be taught in less than a day.

    So, Chip, how can you teach even small children how to use something you don't have ...? Say, picture might just do it ... but me thinks that the real thing would be an advantage - AND if I can acquire one without incurring a $400 cost so much the better.

    Don't mean to seem rude ... did that seem rude ...? [I tell ya, sometimes I'm so cynical ... mumble, mumble, mutter mutter ...]

    KB:
    A: Surely you have this in whatever office you dispense in. Pirate a copy for a day or two, it's all they will need it.
    B: On disc. there are other things available and larger for teaching purposes.
    C: I suspect Frames data might even freebee a quarterly disc if you were to tell them that you were teaching (and thereby indoctrinateing newbies) to use thier tools.
    D: The disc has suggested retail prices which might be helpfull to newbies.

    FramesDATA has agreed to send Kevin a CD with pricing. He should get it in the next couple of days. I appreciate FramesDATA's active participation in Kevin's endeavors.

    Hi All, I am also seeking a FRAME FACTS or FRAMES DATA price book from the mid 1990's (any year and any quarter). I am willing to pay $150 for it. Please send email toDrRobert@eyeworksgroup.com if you can help. Thank you!

    Hello, I am seeking relatively recent copies of the Lenses Product Guide and the Surfacing And Finishing Product Guide. If anyone has these and would be willing to sell at a reasonable price, please let me know, thanks.
