  1. RIP. I enjoyed his posts over the years.
  2. I replaced my old 4 x 8 last fall. With a new 5 x 10 Accu Cut from Computerized Cutters in Plano, TX. Since I'm 5 miles from them, I worked a pretty sweet deal. I upgraded the spindle to a 5hp. Then they actually ended up upgrading, my upgraded spindle, to a 7hp. (I guess it's what they had on hand) Man this sucker is quiet. We were able to pick it up on our trailer. I have a fork lift at the shop, so it was easy peazy getting it in place. I didn't get the vacuum table. I Had a newer one on the old machine, and it's ridiculously loud as well. Take your time, and work them down in pricing. Time is your friend. I scored mine for $22,700.00
  3. "They're just doing the jobs, Americans wont...." I see crap like this, all over TX. Low bid wins once again! I seriously doubt this fool works for a licensed company. This is the guy who worked at a sign biz for 12 months, bought a used 33' bucket truck, and now is a Sign god.
  4. Sooner or later they (employees) always take advantage of a great situation. I allow my employees to build small projects for themselves, not for resale. If they need something for their kids team, a B Day, Anniversary... I'm cool with that. I let them work on their vehicles, borrow a trailer and truck to move. But when it comes to money, regardless of the amount. If it's happening in my shop, it's my money.
  5. That channel letter pic has another fail. Can't terminate the LED module wire as shown. It must have a small whip beyond the module, and both wires have to be capped, via wire nuts.

  7. Oh well, we're still in the 20th century here. Amazingly, we're still able to build channel letters, without a channel machine. Probably 50% of our channel letters are welded, and use neon for illumination. If I was chasing business, and needed to build a low cost product. In order to compete with with the nationals. I suppose I'd buy one.
  8. 2nd on the Lien on the property.
  9. No short cuts. We've done plenty of the same installs. One man drills, one squirts water, switch bits, and get 'er done!
  10. No thanks. I'm sure the best pics are blurred out.... ;)
  11. It's been 5 years. (See link at bottom of the original post) Any idea how the Genessee Beer sign/LED's are holding up? ;)
  12. Well a great start would be to remind us (former) paying members to continue our memberships! I don't see my biz on the installer map? Shoot me a bill, and I'll fix that.
  13. Great job E! I have yet to take the plunge into any sign trade organization. I have my personal reasons, no need to go into those details. We're still building plenty of evil neon, and fluorescent signs here at ALLTEX! We're actually re-branding a chain restaurant group, with exposed neon building signs. Triple, and double stroke letters, and border accents. We'll also be building an amazing neon sign project (2,500' border), plus the largest neon building sign, and pylon sign I've ever been associated with. ( In my 26 years in the sign biz. ) This is for a different customer. You will actually be able to drive under this sign. I designed it as a feature piece. The city actually signed off on it. This location will also have 10' tall neon channel letters mounted above the building. We're all really pumped about this job/opportunity. It's a real blessing to have loyal customers, who have vision, and trust in the, "old school" technology.
  14. You disagree with me, not Paul. Not sure what you disagree with. It's as if you think no man has suffered, died defending this Country, helped build, and create what we all have. I've been a guy for 49 years. I still have never been invited to the club. Where men get together, plot and plan to hold women, or non Caucasian races down. I live in TX. I think I'd be someone that group would contact. My mother worked her ass off, going to college-paid her own way, to become an Attorney. Which she did for nearly 40 years. She instilled my work ethic. Not my father who left us when I was around 8. When I hit 18, I joined the Army. Went to school, worked 3 jobs at some times. I've been in the sign biz for 25 years now, 10 as an owner (with my wife). My wife hung wallpaper for 20 years. Started her biz when she was 22. She, like me have worked for everything we have. Zero, I mean zero help from our families, or the Gov. Disagree with me as much as you want. No one should demand to be treated more special, than anyone else. Basically, that's what all the protests are about. That, and Hillary losing.
