    I would hope anyone who is abusing the ability to sit in a chair would be fired anyway. I sit when I can. Why not?

    tell them it'll cost more. You probably bid it so buy all material in "bulk" and set up one time. Now they expect you to cover the cost of material as it sits on your shelf or worse, finished parts...

    We are slammed for what looks like the rest of the year. I'm having to turn away an uncomfortable amount of good work.

    The boss over at Garr should put my name on the back of his boat because I'm pretty sure I paid for it. I use a ton of their alumistar cutters.
