A YEAR IN REVIEW OF 2010 - PART I

Show us YOUR sign!

We're located in an industrial park, in the first unit of our building (facing the street). The landlord only allows plaque style sings on square blanks that are located next to each door, so we simply stuck our logo on in vinyl and were done with it. I have since been able to persuade them to allow us to make an illuminated sign that is exactly the same size, but with a little more flair. .....

TACO BELL SIGN FALLS - KILLS WOMAN

Wow. That pipe is shredded. I see one thing that happened in your case that interests me. The Section Modulus of pipe is determined by its thickness *and* its diameter. Section Modulus for those of you who do not fab heavy steel is the steel's ability to resist bending. I won;t bother running this through our engineering program to see if my numbers are exactly accurate, but the principle will be true. The SM of a 10" pipe with a 1/2" thick wall may be the same.....

520 WILKIE - WHO HAS ONE AND DO YOU LIKE IT?

We have a Wilkie 520, It is very reliable, for a small crane it is as good as the skyhooks I used to work with, having to work the load line to telescope in and out while on service calls is a slight inconvenience, but over all you can't beat them, hell for most repairs you can get the parts at any auto parts store........

SHAME.....SHAME...BAD IMAGE....!...

It is people like these that give our whole industry a BAD RAP, Especially Neon!! At night you can see that they did not use 2161 transformers....Not is there going to be a Fire, But when will it Happen??? They should be found and run outta town..Tared & Feathered........

MID POINT WIRING

I believe the original post was referring to 'mid-point return', where the mid point of a well-balanced tube set is returned to the transformer ground lug. This requires a transformer which has two sets of secondary magnetic winding shunts (such that each half of the transformer secondary is independent of the other.) This method has fallen out of favor because (1) other than boarder tube, well balanced tube sets are few and far between, (2) secondary ground.....

CITGO SIGN IN KENMORE SQUARE LED REPLACED AFTER 5 YEARS AFTER THE LEDS FAIL

Red and Amber LEDs should hold up for a really long time and 100,000 hours is achievable. The problem is the circuit design, drive current, how waterproof is it considering the application, and is the LED chosen a suitable part for the application. It sounds like on more than one front, they built a system that wouldn't hold up.......
