Coming Soon



If you have gotten this far, you should know that my goal is to train you and your staff to take the Static Regain engineering work away from me. Your Membership gets me back to the job of consulting for you, providing you access for handling the difficult strategies and challenges in applying static regain design more profitably.

Access Membership allows me to do prepaid consulting for you, to answer the specific questions you will have for the details of Static Regain.

If you have an ongoing static regain design project with me, Membership for one year is included as part of the process for getting the spiral ductwork design completed.
For the times between ongoing projects, your Membership allows you access to me to answer questions and help you plan such as bidding strategies.

Access Membership costs you $2,500 per year or it is included for a year with an ongoing project.
Your membership cost covers an average amount of questions and helps me by replacing the inconvenient paper work of billing you $50 for a question or $190/hr for engineering as it pertains to static regain.


If you decide to bring me to your company for a one day hands on seminar and workshop, the cost is $7,500 plus all expenses, and includes access Membership for one year. You may add a second day to the seminar for an added cost of $2,500 per day added.

  • Why using spiral duct improves duct design – SNIPS article

    In 1948, research by R.G. Huebscher established flow resistance for different shapes of ductwork at equal velocities, which allowed the creation of the duct-sizing calculator or “Ductulator” for picking equivalent sizes of rectangular ducts based on the baseline round duct size. The Ductulator is a shortcut that only works on paper if you reduce the […]
