I have been asked a few times about teaching automotive cam profile design. I enjoy sharing knowledge with like minded people but I don't have a logical way of actually teaching someone in person. I was thinking maybe I can do this online through the website. I don't have any desire to create a YouTube channel but I admit that would probably be the best approach.
I have an old 1980's DOS lobe design program that is for sale on the website. A very good program at the time, just a little hard to use today. I hate to see it go to waste so this may be a way to make use of it again. I would also like to keep the Reed cam profiles alive in the process. I know many customers thought that the Reed cam profiles were the best. Maybe some of those folks would be interested in this.
I am thinking about using the program to help teach cam profile design. I would go through the design process with Reed profiles and post it here on the website. It would be free to everyone but to really receive any benefit the viewer would also need to have the program. The cost of the program is $125. That would entitle the purchaser to any one-on-one help if needed. Once the user becomes proficient with the program they could decide if they would like to pursue this further and maybe purchase a more modern program and even start their own camshaft manufacturing company. Let me know what you think.
