  1. I use them all the time, great product, great sales staff, very easy to use....and the competition is always trying to catch up with them and their technology.
  2. The crane was plenty big enough to lift that structure, with the proper set up, that structure has 11 cabinets that weigh somewhere in the range of say 250#'s each (rough guesstimate) those three poles I'm guessing around 1800#'s each and then miscellaneous cross braces, say another 1000#'s for those. Total guesstimated weight is roughly 9150#'s. That is a 105 foot 30 ton crane, it can lift two of those structures with the proper set up. Lifting over the side of the crane like that with a boom angle such as this one is never a good idea. Also the way they had it rigged make NO sense at all, Now if he were to set up closer and have the boom more straight up I don't believe this would have happened. Did anyone else notice the propane torch tank in the bed of the pickup that the boom landed on? The boom missed it by merely inches. With the sparks from the electrical contact and the propane, that could have been a hell of a lot worse!
  3. I'm sure it's nothing a little lake time on the boat and some stiff drinks can't take care of!
  4. What happened to the foot bar and the back gauge?? Did someone try to lift it by those with a forklift?? The foot bar eeehhh that can be repaired pretty easy as long as it did not damage any actuators, but the back gauge looks smoked...
  5. They Claim they are UL listed...
  6. This is what happens when you don't use the silicone and only rely on the VHB...and use VHB to block a module up to not be shadowed by an LED driver...This was a company out of Indiana that made these...
  7. Long story short....you'll spend more money on vinyl that what it's worth to go with a cheap cutter, I threw away lots and lots of vinyl with my US Cutters... From not tracking straight to just stopping in the middle of a cut file they have sooo many bugs in them it's not funny.
  8. I'm guessing with the faces already removed, all ALL of the letters hanging, not just a few, that this was a job the OP was removing and did it for the laugh factor... No way...NO WAY in hell even if they used really short screws and very little silicone that they all would have fallen without the owner noticing and calling it in...
  9. We will be hanging the ones in the photos from the ceiling of a convention room, but they are too large to fit through the door, so they have walls torn out for us to get them in the room, once the room gets closer to completion we will finish the install of these along with a few other smaller ones that can fit through the door. At that time yes we will be fixing the neon on all of the signs, they also wanted to fix the flashing lights around the Chevrolet sign! I suggested that they would not need any other lighting in the room if they chose to do that! They decided to go with just the neon...
  10. We are moving some old well known signs in the Des Moines area from a warehouse into a new restaurant, pretty cool stuff, thought you all would like to see them. I will post updates as we move forward.
  11. Old post but with summer coming I couldn't help but contribute. We spend every minute we can at the lake.
  12. We have ordered from them with satisfaction met in every department, ordered online with no problems, part showed up a few days later. I Highly recommend MCS!
  13. Most around here are like you stated "counter service" but we have one here in central Iowa that is taking up to 2 weeks to issue a permit for a simple face replacement, I'm talking about removing and replacing a simple tenant panel in a strip mall! They have got to be one of the most anti business muni's around! But after seeing what Leawood is doing down there... Wow how has no one taken them to court?
  14. How long does it take your municipality to process sign permits?
  15. Any Ideas where this was?
