Charles was originally an engineer with Texas when I first met him. I took over running the first SMT course in the UK using his materials.
I met him for the first time when I was a boy, the new kid on the block at the Nepcon West conference 12 years ago and always talked with him at the speakers lounge. A real nice guy !!!!
When he passed away and the SMTA set up the Grant I just wanted to contribute hence the three manuals I gave to the SMTA to sell, all the income goes to the student fund to help a future engineer with books, material etc.
