    It was supposed to ramp up higher in...

    You are not going to get anywhere near a true to the model part for $9ea.
    All those fillets and rads make that a $50 part. With a 100pc minimum. Paid in advance (cause anybody that has been doing...

    Well, we are well in to the 100's temp wise now. I saw 102 today.
    So far, with machines running, the shop stays a very comfy 76' (set on 76') until about noon.
    We are working 5-1 right now (I use...

    Well, yea, smooth power-troweled finish for sure. Exposed aggregate finish (not polished) would suck! It is the coatings I don't understand.

    I have never understood why so many people worry about the floor. All manner of coatings from paint to epoxy to polish, seem to take priority.

    I am going to have to echo the "don't pay rent" crowd. I did it to get started. Had to, no other way.
    But, priority #1 was always to get away from paying rent. It took me 4 years.

    That is precisely why that huge fly-cutter works. You can get the SFM up there with low Rippems. And, the cutting forces are zilch.
