            The handle you're looking at is an adjustable handle Meguiar's use to offer. I'm pretty sure it's been discontinued, but there are still some around.

            I know, Kevin Brown, a distributor of Meguiar's has at least a couple of cases of them because I I loaded them into his trailer after the NXT Tech Institute workshop was over.

            He goes by the name iamwaxman here on Meguiar's Online and you can send him a e-mail from here

              it's too bad us poor folk who don't live in the area can't attend... I would love to go to one of these if it was up here in Vancouver... or even Seattle.

                A big 2 thumbs up to the guys from Meguiars. They did an excellent job with this first NXTi. We started from the basics and got a good understanding of how to approach different problems. Then we got hands on....which was great. The instructors were extremely knowledgable and patient. Well worth my time and money.

                Thanks Meguiars! Job well done!!!!

                  The first NXT Tech Institute Advanced Workshop was a lot of fun and came off without a hitch. It was a fast-paced class with a lot of information and hands-on training packed into on day. We hope everyone came away with more knowledge and had a chance to learn new skills and/or improved the skills that already started with.

                  Here are some pictures from the event starting with Bill using the rotary buffer with instruction and oversight by Mike Pennington.
