Course trainer - Ken Johnson

Ken Johnson began his professional career as an air traffic controller.
After 4 years, he found that carbon brushes with their many idiosyncrasies
were far more challenging than landing aircraft. Having always been
intrigued with machines, he discovered brush-ology 31 years ago and has
worked with them ever since.
