    This 100 times. I am flexible with people as is reasonable, but if they can't at least agree to the terms of "paid in full upon completion" in the beginning I usually don't want the risk because I am...
  2. Clausing Kondia B-500 Parts Availability

    I bid on a Kondia B-500 (1993) with a non-op Dynapath controller, because at the time I thought I would have a truck coming right through the part of the country where it's located with a guy who...

    No pictures of this thing? I was picturing more of a ladder when I made my first comments, but seems to be a set of stairs rather? Sounds much more sketchy than what I was imagining before. Though...

    The problems with negotiating an extra year (aside from losing the sale) are that owning a building for 1yr is not free, and that 1yr of a persons time used to sell the stuff off is also not free. So...

    I wouldn't be surprised if HGR offered $25k for $400k worth of equipment.

    I would reach out to some of the big players anyway and see what they say. For one I am guessing that your inventory is...

  7. Swivel parts from C2 Wilton Vise Free to Good Home

    I removed these parts from my C2 vise when I mounted it on a pedestal base. If anyone can put them to use it will keep them out of the scrap bin. Just pay for shipping. Thanks.

    I have used most brands, and would probably suggest to buy a Dynasty if the money is there. (I have only had experience with Lincoln transformer machines, but maybe their inverter are just as good) ...

    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.

    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...
