  1. John, Do I qualify for the job? Good luck, the last GOOD guy I hired took 6 months to find.
  2. I agree with John. If there isn't a disconnect on ANY sign we service the first thing we do is shut down the power and install the switch. Then go on to see what is wrong with the sign. I feel terrible when I hear about unnecessary deaths like this but if you don't know what your doing you shouldn't be doing it. Sympathy to his family and friends.
  3. Paul you've got it. I just today had to explain to a Ben & Jerry's manager that just because the have LED's that are lit the sign illumination level is such that it looks out. His response was "But LEDs are supposed to last forever" It's frustrating that after a lifetime as a lighting designer and years in the sign industry I just don't know anything.
  4. Finally!!!! A little national attention to our classic products. I so wish the codes would let us animate exterior signs here. No flashing, sequencing, or blinking allowed in exterior signs in CT
  5. Thanks! - industrystones@yahoo.com

      Did you get the job?  Stay hot!

  6. Good luck! It took me over 6 months to replace a tube bender here. If you send me your e-mail I'll forward you a resume I got 2 days after our new bender started.
  7. Jeff. did you contact me by e-mail a while ago? Please send me your resume along with expected salary to bob@burkeenterprise.com Thanks
  8. It seems EVERY time one of our "good customers" tell me they can get it for less online I get a call within 2 years to come fix it. Funny how our service rate can go up for those calls. I just can't figure it out..... Can anyone out there shine shit?
  9. I agree with Eric, If the neon is installed correctly it will outlast the LED and give a better ROI. You will be doing your customer a miss service selling him the LED. Show him the facts data sheets for cost to install and operate then let him decide.
  10. You can also try Quality Sign Crafters in Willimantic, CT a try they have always done well by me.
  11. By the way the price is great!
  12. Korea is better than China but still.... Does anyone make ANYTHING in the USA? I know your doing your best as are all of us I'm just venting.

  14. The last time one of the nationals we work for took a much lower price they had to hire us to go fix the mess that was made. Don't under price yourself especially to the point that you have to do shoddy work. Do a great job for a good fair price and make a living. You don't need to take of the marbles but if you don't go home with some of them in your pocket you can't play again tomorrow.
  15. Does this mean that the constant voltage LEDs that are used in a dimming system (as in a building using lutron controls for the lighting) will be brighter at the beginning of the string and dimmer at the ends? Erik we may have a problem with the casino project we have been talking about!!!! Can I get by by making more home runs to the power supply and feeding from the middle of each string?
