    Have any pictures? Sounds like they would be better off without it at only 18ft haha. Though at only 18ft I think 5x5 columns is a bit overkill if it is tied into the wall. You could fit 3 people...

    I think you would be crazy not too.

    There is an example of each of these machines that just sold in the last two weeks on Ebay I would take a look at. The FP1 sold for under $3500, and a decent...

    Ain't that the truth.

    Most recently wanted me to put in the same amount of paved parking spots required per sq ft for an office building, but on a warehouse addition. Takes calling around the...

    I don't think it is supposed to have an open tank anywhere. Doesn't the runoff flow through a filter back into the tank? The rest of the tank has a cover over it then is how they come original I...

    $200 a piece or $360 for both plus actual shipping. I doubt you could buy the 8 rollers alone for that. Someone get these before I decide to keep more stuff I don't need. :willy_nilly:

    The way it is here you can't do any of the work yourself on a commercial property. (unless you are a licensed commercial GC) I would guess that is true in many/most of the rest of the states. ...

    I don't know what your local codes are there, but out here commercial building construction and shoe string budget are never going to happen. Also starting from bare land and cheap will not go...

    Two tons on a trailer with no brakes can turn a summer road into black ice when you need to panic stop. Ask me how I know... I would only tow that much weight behind a pickup with trailer brakes. ...

    They work well for slag removal and sanding on sheet metal parts with an angle grinder. I have seen places keep one by their plasma table for that purpose.

    I would put it into service as it is if that were mine, and only go back in if it seemed to cause any issues. If you are worried about balancing then trim the opposite blade to balance it out, and...

    No, that was my own opinion after reading what I posted again. It was not meant to sound so harsh, or serious a complaint.



    I won't disagree with that. Get busy doing good work, and you will...

    I said the nickel thing might very well have only bothered me, and was probably overly critical of that in the post where I said it. Since edited a bit to not sound like such an ass.

    If you are going to cold call for new customers it is the person who *sounds* like they can do the work that gets the job, not the person who can do the work without sounding professional. I myself...

    I can't imagine the marijuana growing industry is any better or worse than the rest of industrialized farming at any of these issues, and possibly better in some instances due to the extra scrutiny...

    Same here. I do a good amount of stainless fabrication (architectural mostly), and no matter how hard you try to keep material clean there will always be touch up. Once you learn the techniques it is...

    That just sounds like a good way to ruin a step drill to me. I would think a step drill should never be used on material thicker than any one step, but for what they are intended to do they are...
