    According to my research, it is not required if your lifting capacity is less than 2000 pounds. Since our sky-hook and jib are both rated for 2000 so i have not pursued the certification.
  2. Not sure how many heard of this in Florida last week. It made the news here in Ohio. Hits home with my crew as we do many of these type of installs. Also hits home with my school sales guy as he says that he has lost many install deals as the team boosters decide it costs too much and they will do it themselves. Sad. https://people.com/human-interest/baseball-coach-and-wife-electrocuted-putting-up-new-scoreboard-son-injured/

    Vehicle Templates

    We have done it both ways. The outlines are nice for quoting but we don't do enough new quotes to justify the expense. Most of our vehicle stuff is for repeating customers so design and files stay pretty consistent.
  5. Hi ALL! Hope everyone had a great Holiday Season!! Question for the install crowd. Wondering if anyone has a good solution for hanging patterns on Masonry (stone or brick) and/or EIFS in weather below 40 degrees. We have tried several different tapes and such over the years but have not found a good solution as of yet. Thanks in advance.

    Pattern use in Winter

    Thanks ALL! Some great ideas. BTW we use a lot of Gorilla tape. It works great as long as the temp is higher than 35 degrees.

    Thanks! Did not think of the reuse part regarding coro. Love the idea! What spray adhesive have you found to work best? What speed do you run the spindle at.... Assuming very slow. 😎

    Thanks Rocco! I like the idea of the tape to make a hem and then staples. We have done the cardboard trick with tapcons as well.

    Flex Face install in 30° temps

    Good questions... cant wait to see what the more experienced members have to say. We have not had luck unless it was >50 degrees outside.
  13. We are a growing sign company in Central Ohio and have a current opening for a Sign Installer / Service Tech. If interested, please call 740.602.0260.
  14. Looking for some ideas... We are constructing many small non-illuminated direct bury cabinets for a local home builder. We are using aluminum "U" channel for the legs and then want to attach max metal faces to them. We want to use max metal because it comes in a prefinished color that works for our need and is it more cost effective than aluminum. We are looking a glue or epoxy that would work. I don't think that the max metal (DiBond like product - PVC with Aluminum skin) can be welded. We want to have a clean appearance on the faces (i.e., no visible fasteners). Any recommendations? Thanks, Paul

    Securing Max Metal to Aluminum

    Thanks All! I will try both. But it looks like the Lords may be a better fit for this application.

    Anybody else starting to notice??

    What auction companies are you all subscribed to that have Sign Equipment? I am on a few but rarely see sign companies... a lot of printers and machine shops.
  17. Does it fold down into wings and fly?? LOL
