    Where the heck are you working that has you running a 45' aerial boom with no training? Seek a better employer who will care if you die or worse kill someone else.

    A $500 plane ticket is money well spent to prevent you from buying a $25k boat anchor.

    I think it depends on what it is and how much of an investment it will be for you. In my experience most...

    Have you anyway to confirm that it was working when purchased at the auction? If you bought it as-is at an auction there is a good chance it could have previous issues in the first place. It looks...

    If ever selling a product exclusively through one distributer I would make sure that there was a solid agreement on minimum product that they need to move to keep exclusivity. Easy for a large...

    x2 I always see them on there, and think the same as you as to it just being a sales ploy. Like a furniture store that has been "going out of business" for the last 10 years it just plants the idea...

    Even Ingersoll Rand does the same thing with some of their cheap stuff too. Run the same pump on a larger motor at a higher RPM to increase the output. There is no free lunch, it just puts more...

    I feel like info is missing to make this make any sense. Is there a reason that RW pulley needs to be two different diameters? (such as something out of diagram that right belt wont clear if it is...

    I don't see what is funny? It is only barely more than a brand new one. A brand new one you never know what issues you might have, but this one is tried and true...surely they will guarantee that it...

    Without seeing your entire correspondence, and fine print of any paperwork...they could have very well protected themselves with a clause about third party work like this I might suspect.

    I would think that MSDS would need to be kept on hand from manufacturers even long after the end of production of a product. Sorry not much help, but maybe just need to get the right dept/person at...

    You are in a better part of the US than me for surplus machinery, and a press brake is not a cheap shipping item so finding locally helps. As someone who has been looking for a similar press brake...

    Do they work off of a simple ball valve on off? I am assuming that the pneumatic powered vac pump needs a constant flow of air to pull vacuum, or does it reach a holding point and lock up the...

    If I get to the end of the year with this roller I will just keep it I'm thinking, and have also raised the price everywhere to $10,500 currently. In the meantime though still for sale...and I will...

    I did take some 80grit and roughed up the jaws a bit, as well as made sure they were clean. I have just temporarily been adding a bar clamp on the jaws to hold the material down in place to get...
