  1. OK So what started the fire ? Where was the Transformer ? What was burning inside the sign ? GTO wire and end Caps will not produce that amount of fire, heat and damages as shown And the plastic face was intact while the fire was burning as shown in the video The Eface storefront is fireproof, restricts fire. A wood storefront or interior sign would have a different ending Just questions for reference ..............
  2. Electronic Transformer used inside the sign cabinet shorted and caught fire. Glass melts at 1,000 degrees and the neon glass in the sign is melted into a new shape. Think of the damages if this was inside the building, thru the wall, or just an interior neon sign on a wall. The electrical breaker never tripped, So we will blame it on the electrician
  3. No Retirement in sight for you now. Best wishes with your new adventures
  4. WOW ! HAPPY BIRTHDAY You only have another 53 Years to go.
  5. As the song goes............... " For The times they are a changing "
  6. One photo tells a thousand words. Same photo for all the electrical signs. Its all to code, same work.
  7. Sign Suppliers selling to anyone for that extra dollar. I know it well. I can not blame anyone for trying to make more money or extra money on the side. We all have done it. When a supplier goes into business selling to the trades, that is his profession and that is what he is building his business on If the Supplier wants to sell to the public and or manufacture themselves and sell directly. Let them. You can do the same. Buy Direct. Buy someplace else. Knock them out of the picture. Make them hurt. I did it several times with a supplier. I stopped ordering from them. Sometimes I paid less, Sometimes I paid more. But that supplier lost everything from me. That was a big hit to them and they felt it immediately. New Suppliers want your business and want their competitors out of business also. The suppliers came back to me and with better pricing and service. They also changed their policies. Get a few shops together on this and watch the impact you will make.
  8. I have always demanded deposits and Balances under my terms for many years No one works for free, Not the Nationals, Not the Maintenance Companies and Not me. If they want to pay in 30 or 45 days, perfect with me. Tell them to send you the payment on their Credit Card. THEY can then pay their Credit Card Company in 30 0r 45 days or whenever Everyones happy I have NO Collections open
  9. Brookyn NY ....... We are 1 mile from the Barkleys Center. The center for all the shit that happens in Brooklyn Manhattan is 1 Mile. 3 Miles from Times Square. In any direction I go, I'm in the middle of it. So far we are good.
  10. $ 1,120. a week to stay home. PLUS a $ 600. Food Voucher a month to stay home on the couch. TOTAL ........$ 1,270. a week. And Here in NYC, Our Mayor, Mayor DumBlasio purchased 34,000 Air Conditioners to GIVE away FREE to people who are ...? And the City will pay their Electric Bill WHY WORK ?
  11. The phone is ringing and customers are asking about sign removals Some are never going to open back up because of this shutdown. Some are giving up and know that they will not make it successful And some just had enough, early retirements. The question will be for many , Is how much money, time and effort do I want to put back into starting over ? Then there is the Employee problem.
  12. U P S means................ Under Pylon Sign Same Day, Next Day Any Day Service That's real drive thru service.
  13. Our Accubend went down. The 1st time since it was new. Due to the Current Corona Virus Restrictions and Scare. Our scheduled Service was cancelled Accubend Service called us up and scheduled a Video Conference to repair our machine We scheduled the time and with the Accubend Service Tech and our tech, we were ready 2 Hrs of trouble shooting and the repair was made. No Parts needed, No travel time and NO CHARGE ! Accubend has again proven that they are the best. They have proven that they stand behind their machines and do " What Ever Is Needed " to get the job done ! Thanks for keeping the only " RED ACCUBEND MACHINE " up and running !
  14. Who's bringing in the LED Lights ??
  15. TERMS This is a removal and has NO Value to anyone Once the Signs are down, No one cares if you get paid and there is No One to go after . Removals......Paid in full prior to work or start of work Especially if you are working for someone else who is waiting to get paid
  16. Mercer County NJ Traffic Dept. Working On O.T. attempting to lift a traffic light off the ground. Boomed directly up and into the Power Lines........Jib made contact and ZAP ! Operator survived without injury. Truck is a total loss
  17. All I can say is WOW ! I guess they will not be celebrating 4th of July, or any other American Holidays anymore
  18. There use to be specific vendors. There still are choice Nationals building the signs. There are also numerous " Approved Sign Companies " building and installing DUNKIN" signs When it comes to anything outside the standard sizes and designs, the " Approved Sign Company " will do the entire job
  19. Still available in New York Along with the Illegal Drugs, Guns and anything else you need But DO NOT block the Bicycle lane, that is the priority here
  20. I went to a job site and found this guy at the front door. Everyone needs to be greeted by this guy. He is the shinning star and ready to help anyone at anytime. He sets the example for all employees to follow. Do you think this guy would wear a Company Shirt that advertises the guy who pays him every week ?
  21. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Have fun in the sun... I cant remember that far back to 46, I need pictures to remember 46
  22. Here is the 1995 International 4900 DT 466 Motor, Allision Automatic, Loaded Options, All Brand New Tires and 7,003 ORIGINAL MILES when delivered to me. Original Factory Paint job. NO EMISSIONS Shit. And it came with factory installed automatic snow chains on the rear wheels. Bought right out of the Fire House, Never outside in the weather Sent to STAMM MFG in Florida to build with a NEW MANITEX SC 62 Ft The Truck Cab is not new paint, it is the original factory paint job buffed out shinny
  23. Here is a " National " Maintenance Co that sent me a request to work for them. I read their contract and it included payment statements stating they will only pay their contractors if they get paid by their customers. Also included was a Hold Harmless Insurance Policy covering everyone And no legal actions can be taken against the National or the end customer Plus a lot of other nonsense When I asked why would anyone want to work with your company knowing that you do not pay until you are paid ? I also asked how do we know if you are paid or not paid from your customer ? Here is the answer sent to me Hello, I will take you out of our system. The only reason we wait until the client pays us ( like every other maintenance company that isn’t upfront with you about it ) is because we are nationwide and all through Canada. If we paid every technician before getting paid we would be out of business. That would be millions we would have to lay out. Thank you!

  24. Frustrated 1st thing in the morning leaves the entire day to really get pissed off. When people ask me " How many employees do you have working for you " ? I answer " About half " That is the reality of being a business owner If this was easy, everyone would do it.
