  • "I've learned more in just a few hours with the Tec-Ease GD&T Hierarchy Coach than in 12 weeks taking a similar on-line program. I look forward to the time I get to spend viewing the presentations and taking the interactive quizzes. Here at FOX the Tec-Ease GD&T Hierarchy Coach is rated "best in class".
    - Marvin D.
  • "Thank you for all that you do. Your "Tips" are INVALUABLE -- I frequently refer to the archive for advice when I run across a sticky tolerancing puzzle."
    - Barbara P.
