    Are we talking about operations flying under the radar, or ones that were approved at the time of inception? That's one of my main concerns.

    I definitely see the point about not getting an ROI...

    Backstory, I run a small fabrication shop, currently in a leased commercial location. Been here since I opened in late '12. Pretty much a 1 man band, save for...

    Double may be the case in 1100 aluminum, but it's most definitely not the case in 5052. Depending on whether it's H32 or H38 or whatnot, you'd only be looking at 1.2 or 1.3 times the force to bend...

    Aluminum gauges are different from steel gauges, and while I don't know of anyone that actually uses aluminum gauges (decimals instead), 11 gauge aluminum is only .090 so I can almost see that...

    I think most of us here are in that same boat. I'm sure not beating down small shops, if you've got 10 guys working for you, you're quite a bit bigger than my business.

    But, as Digger said,...

    Do you not have CAT scales at truck stops near you? Or, are you so far off the beaten path that there are no truck stops? I think they're like 12 bucks a weigh.

    I took that stuff for 7 years. It's a relatively mild drug, not sure what side effects would be so bad, unless it's the antibiotic they are combining with it, rather than the Plaquenil.

    I don't know. 2 Vf2s are what? 17k? Add 10k pounds of inventory, 8k for the truck, 10k for the trailer. That's 45, plus a saw, tumblers and whatever else he said he had.

    It adds up about right.
