    That's a good possibility and they seem to pop-up more often in searches (probably more "trendy"), but all the ones I've seen were all wood whereas mine are tin with wood faces and backs, and most...

    We calculate our chips differently than some shops, but scrap value rates don't have any bearing on our books. We're not running nearly as high of volume as some shops but for us chips and drops are...

    Hot-Shot Ocean Freight... why not?

    I wonder if they can by-pass the ports like the hot-shot trucker guys bypassing scales? This could be a lucrative.
