  5. Customers that send out a lot of quotes, "cast netting"

    I have heard this from several shops... customers that routinely send out a list of parts to many shops for quotes. Five or more is not unusual. Then they pick the lowest prices from the quotes so...

    Speaking of college types, as a prototype "machinist" contractor I was at a lunch with a bunch of the science and engineer types when the senior engineer told a story of a contest to guess the length...

    Death Panel? and that would be what?

    Free college? Do you think our elected officials want an educated free thinking bunch of voters?

  10. Blue collar, white collar.. my observations in the US and what about other cultures?

    So when we decided to get married almost 40 years ago, her CPA pop asked me how I was going to support her daughter since I was nothing but an aircraft mechanic with no college... He died in debt,...

    Yep, they have pretend docs preventing real docs from doing their job which we pay dearly for them to do.

    Yes, Stefan seems to have things dialed in for a small shop. I like his videos.

    Is there a cost to someone in the EU to do business in the EU? Like dues or anything?
  15. I know how large the EU is. I was just asking...

    I know how large the EU is. I was just asking for the reasons why. I didn't think it would be any extra cost or much paperwork to sell outside, but it must be.
  16. So doing business inside of the EU, if you are in...

    So doing business inside of the EU, if you are in the EU, is like doing business inside of the US between companies in different States. Got it. Simple is usually less expensive.
  17. OK, sounds like a good reason. We have extra...

    OK, sounds like a good reason. We have extra paperwork when selling outside of the US.

    It has been said that going to the Moon was not so bad but the paperwork was rough. Or something like that.
  18. Shops working only in the EU? Why would this be?

    A friend sent me this link which says this small shop only works inside of the EU. What would be the reason for this?

    Apparently there is nothing preventing me from selling to someone in the EU....
  19. Trillions. Yes. But it is not like those...

    Trillions. Yes. But it is not like those Trillions will be added to what we already pay.

    What I would think would be less expensive, is to have a tax increase and no person would have to pay for...

    That is interesting... wait 6 to 8 to see a doc for what?
