    lol, I first saw her stapled to the side of a liquor store when I fell in love. I had to rescue her, and she's been a great companion ever since.

    So I am lost in this thread now,
    this Darin dude is 9100? I heard of this guy before but dont know from why or where, it was here in AZ.

    so curiosity got me and I wanted to see 9100s building. at
    10012 TARGET LN
    HAVANA, AR UNITED STATES 72842-8812

    its a vacant lot LMAO

    I rarely am fooled by people online, Yeah 9100 talked alot, bragged alot, but I really thought he had a decent shop not as big as he claimed but decent anyway, at least until that last post of him buying out someones shop just for the employees. after that I didnt pay much attention to him.
    Saw wheelies post explode and thought you guys were still bitching at him about his bathroom. 1st post I see is a bathroom with a full size female cut out haha . then started reading back words Oh wow it got wild.

    What bizarre time warping intoxicant has struck this thread? I followed for a while and it was largely a credible discussion (ok, argument) about difficulties in hiring people for mundane work at mundane wages. OK, Wheelie needs a rest room in the shop, and probably a lady robot dancer who is keeping beat to facebook or instagram or something. I guess she should have a whip too....

    Then I go away for several tens of minutes, and come back, and I *think* we're talking about TWO different people, one who others find abrasive (and whose business arguments strike me as lacking much observation of reality - but that was in a whole other thread) and another one, marked Stainless by the board (how many posts is that?) who on reflection is clearly some kind of fraud. And may be the same as another famous fraud. Or two...

    Is there some 3rd or 4th person in this pot?

    Odd, 9100 was claiming he was trying to "help" SwissMak.... ??? (Are they the same person who is both in Taiwan and AR, or perhaps really stowed away on Air Force One?)

    I think I remember what those are..... it's been a while through..........

    I was looking back at some of the other threads, and I'm amazed at how many guys bought into as9100d's line for so long. He certainly seemed to have some talent, but the smell of excrement was always there in the background, at least for me. Member TC1999 called him out some time last year, but he was still able to convince many that he was legit. He was a pretty good stand up philosopher, as Mel Brooks would say. Too bad Darin's version involved taking advantage of others.

    Wheelie, My best helper walked in the door about a couple of years ago. His english was pretty bad, but he had some shop experience. We found a way to work, and his english has gotten better. I think if you could find a guy kind of like him, it would be ideal. I'm going to ask him if he knows someone on your area, or might know someone that knows someone.

    That could work. Really well!

    Ecuadorian lady on staff and I operated in Spanish for ten years. Met her husband, hired the kids when they got out of HS, then off they went to college

    One day she asked a big, big favour. He is a "tornero". Lathe hand. But not-only. Had bought himself a used machine, going to strike out on his own now that both kids are adults and working their way.

    She knows it is a lot of work, but could I please translate the manual into Spanish? Hands it to me.

    Bridgeport 2J.

    Internet was not yet a big deal, but Compuserve found the factory manual. In Spanish. Had it same week by mail cheaply enough.

    Shuuda seen his eyes light up!

    Guy was midddle 40's, sharp, had been in the trade since teen years, was as capable as they come. Machine didn't really give a damn what language he spoke. Long as he run it the way it was designed to be run, jobs got done. Most major machine tools NOWADAYS have manuals in several languages.

    I've had Russians, Lebanese, Palestinians, Hungarians, Chinese, Ethiopians, and Sikhs as well- same place.

    They all functioned OK at the work, one way or another. Numbers are numbers.

    Not as if we were a choir as had to sing a song all in the same language.

    Looks like one of your renovations was to knock the bathroom over on its side. I have to agree with the wife, that's not fit for use!

    Gotta be careful with that - sometimes those apprentices sort of go off, and you're left with a flooded workshop...
