    Gary, What meeting are you referring to? I don't see anything that fits that description.

  5. Gary, Hahaha... Heck of a deal eh..... It was probably a little over priced at 95,000.00. Had a number of calls but nobody showed me the money. I think at 73,000.00 it's much more enticing. I know there are people out there looking, it's just getting it in front of them. December and April seems to be the best month to sell equipment. End of year planning and a busy looking summer in April for folks.
  6. Truck is back on the market at $73,000.00! Call Dave at 217-254-0029
  7. Bruce, It is still available. I put it back in service shortly after I advertised it because we got very busy. But things are back to normal; and I have bought another nree truck also. I have lowered the price to 73,000.00. It's still in the same shape with maybe an additional 1,000 mi8les on it. Dave 217-254-0029

    It's on the tip of my tongue but....

    Eddie, Thanks for the correction! It was Watco where I bought some of their old equipment. Kolux was out of Kokomo, IN. and had the Shell account I believe. As you said, it's been a long time. The old CEO from Kolux went down to Jasper county in Illinois shortly after they went out of business and talked the county into backing him in setting up a production sign company. They were going to make all signs for Pepsi. Needless to say 6 months later I went to their auction and remember buying 150 brand new ballasts for 2.00 ea. as well as a brand new spray booth and a few other items.It is indeed a tough business.

    It looks like an extrusion that was used by a company out of Shelbyville, TN. They are long gone now. Kolux I believe or something like that. they made a lot of gas station signs. I still have some equipment of there's that I bought in their closing sale in 1990. Including the form press that could have formed the radius on that retainer you have. I doubt you will ever match that extrusion unless you find an old sign that has it on it. Most of those extrusions were made just for that company and they owned the molds.

    How many stupid people does it take to screw in a (l.e.d.)lightbulb? :-)

    Swing Sign Hanger Brackets

    Wow1 That use to be standard hardware that every supply company carried. I probably have some around still. Send me a pic if you haven't already found one and I'll see if I have them. There are a few different styles.
  14. I thought I would share our Parade entry, which, for the second year in a row won the "Grand Prize" award. It was a great time and really brought good will to our company from the community. If you have one of these in your area you should participate.With our industry knowledge and tools at our disposal, you will have a distinct advantage. And everyone loves a Parade....:-)
  15. Thanks Gary! It was worth the effort!
  16. Has anybody else participated in a Christmas Night Parade? It seemed a natural for us as a sign and lighting company. We took first place last year with this entry. It was some of the best publicity we have ever gotten. This years parade is Friday. I'll let you know how we do. We took overhead shots with our Drone....

    Christmas Night Parades

    Thanks Paul. As I mentioned it was some of the best PR we've had. In fact some of our drone pictures were used by the city on their Christmas card last year and they have asked us to take some more "official" shots this year for them. Also made the front page of the paper. It was all 120 volt. the sign on the back was a Nativity picture with lights forming a pyramid up to a star. In addition it gets your employees motivated to be part of such an effort. We kind of took everybody by surprise last year and I think this year we are going to see a lot more entries step up big time. We shall see!

    Recycled plastic

    That's unfortunate there are no good recycling options. This stuff truly will lay in a dump for a hundred years and not degrade.

    Recycled plastic

    I would be interested in knowing what others are doing with their old plastic faces and scraps. Any good recycling operations you know of that take whole faces as is? I have had companies bring a shipping container to my place and I've filled and it was sent to China for recycling, but that is very hard work loading by hand and they don't want to leave it for more than a day or two. Usually about 25,000# will fill it. They will pay you for it but price is going way down.

    New Elliott Crane

    A beautiful machine! Alas, all us sign companies can do is dream of such. Utilities are the only ones who could afford such a beauty! Vegas and Times Square possible exceptions.
