  1. 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
  2. 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?
  3. 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.
  4. You can also try Quality Sign Crafters in Willimantic, CT a try they have always done well by me.
  5. By the way the price is great!
  6. 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.

  8. 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.
  9. 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?
  10. These guys look like the shop I send some of my work to Quality Sign Craft in Willimantic, CT. Another family owned shop with more pride than money. They do great work always ready to help. On the ASI adhesives. I've been using them more often than Lords too but find they tend to harden in the tube sometimes. Maybe they are getting too hot or cold I'll have to look into it. Last week our shop was 25 degrees and today the tubes were shot my fault for not keeping it warm.
  11. I have had great things done by Quality Sign Crafters in Willimantic CT. They ship anywhere and have reasonable prices. Also a family owned business another pluss from my point of view. sales@qualitysign.us will get you in touch with them
  12. Thanks Paul. I'll add that to the 2 pages of legal jargon in our contracts. It's so worth the extra paper and ink to be on the safe side
  13. been there done that only my words at the end were "Go F*** Yourself" The guy paid for that job up front and has actually come back for 3 other jobs. ALL 100% up front paid. Some times it's best to stand up to them.
  14. 190'??? You go ahead up there. I'll send my iron workers out on those jobs even with the union rates thank you Plus anything wireless can be hacked I wouldn't want to be up there if that happened.
  15. We have done a lot of restoration work here. With this one since it was hacked long ago you only have 2 options. The first one and by far the best is to find all origional parts not easy but worth it. The second depends on the client being good with it. Do a total gut and modern set up. The value of the clock will go to $0.00 but it will be safe and work as a disply item.
