  1. did you spray the paint or roll and brush it? what paint did you use. how many people did you have on the job.
  2. very nice! did you remove just the cans bring back repaint them and install the tubing? any pics of during install/removal?
  3. he had a lot of stick out for being so low with it, def had some sensors not working id say. That shit makes me sick to my stomach.
  4. he was one of the first people to buy those things, They used his install pics in their ads
  5. Erik, I didnt mean to come across as critical, I think your site is great! I became a patron to support your site but admit I expected some more info then what I found. The Hv probe is a great one. Keep them coming. I am always looking to absorb more info on servicing and diagnosing neon ect.
  6. I wouldn't say this site is what I am describing. To be honest I was kinda disappointed when I did my board patron thing thinking I was gonna get access to the stuff I didn't see before. But I really don't care about seeing someones writeup about a HOW-TO on designing cabinets or channel letters. The led tests are pretty cool though and helpful. I want to see pics and tricks of the trades. Im sure we could all learn diff techniques. You are right too many lurkers on this site and not enough people sharing info.
  7. Thanks Erik, I saw that. Just wanted to get more feedback
  8. got a service call from them. How are they payment wise? She said 60 days. What are you guys charging the nationals per hr for service? Is it the same as your regular customers prices? They usually are paying 85 an hour?? Most companies I know wont touch anything for that. This is the location in FL
  9. why cant someone produce a magazine dedicated to the conventional sign craft? Im so tired of seeing all this stuff about printers and the other horseshit filling the pages of signs of the times and signs and graphics business or what ever its called. I wanna buy a mag with real world technical info and pictures about building carved, routered, illuminated, channel letters, trucks, site excavation. Im sure i am not alone
  10. on top of what paul said, the basket controls are towards the back of the basket? so you cant be holding onto a sign face or anything while you are booming up? how many lamps can you fit in that bin 15?
  11. there should be a thread devoted to posting pics and info of old school sign stuff like that
  12. signtiffic thinks it looks great too
  13. think i know what you are talking about, but post pics
  14. cords suck, make it run off an attached battery!
  15. I guess i am a bit confused as to what these franchises will do? are they actually going to be smaller versions of the yesco facilities? manufacturing and servicing signs?
  16. building is for sale in the classifieds of signweb
  17. 400k to tubelight!!!
  18. anytime gas goes up, so will everything else.
  19. the crane is great but the truck is a piece. I sold it, its gonna get picked up in the next week or so. I bought a sx57 on a freightliner FL60 in august and im never looking back. I bought it with another bucket truck for an amazing price and dumped about 5k into it on repairs that I knew it needed. whats been giving you so many problems? I assume the inside cylinders?
  20. justin, how is the elliot treating you?
  21. we dont advertise it as a service like you do, but my brother and I and one of our installers will go out on a moments notice for an emergency. We work 6-7 days a week anyways. Its happened a few times but nothing I could see being worth marketing. In what instances do you have customers who will be calling you at 1 am? Other then a sign falling down and needing to be removed or repaired for health and safety concerns?
  22. how did you guys make channel letter patterns on the projector?
  23. I love hearing old stories, true ones. Anyone have stories of installs? I have heard many about the days of no baskets on the skyhooks, installers climbing the ladders on the cranes up 50' to put an 8x8 face in a sign. It really blows my mind and is hard to grasp. I mean these people really were nuts.
