  1. Sounds like that came from the White House!!
  2. It's so hot here, chickens are laying hard boiled eggs.
  3. We use Mathews etching primer that we use on aluminum. Haven't painted a lot of galvanized but it seemed to do the job.
  4. I'm in Lexington Ky. What do you have. All we do is wholesale. Mainly channel letters but we do a couple of cabinets a month.
  5. We have an Accu Bend. The problem is, with 10ft strips is, you can't use all of it. You would only be able to bend about 6ft of it. It gets pushed thru from the rear and bent at the front. There is about 4 ft from the pusher to the bender.
  6. At least you included K Girl in your deep concern for the rest of us.
  7. none here
  8. I use a brown paper with lines on it. 48" wide and fairly thick. I get it from NEI Sign Supplies in Cinn. Ohio.800.582.9024
  9. Congrats, I've been here since 06 and check it almost daily.
  10. Just did some repairs for a friend that owns a bunch of gas stations. I won't mention the name. It seems all the trim cap came off the channel letters. These were about 2 years old. Made in Germany. They had 3/4" flimsy trim cap and it just peeled off. He tried to get the national, branded gas supplier to let me build his. They sent a qualifier questionnaire and there was no way I could qualify. But yet the type of stuff I repaired was being shipped all over the USA.
  11. Getting business like this is a process. When we were still doing full service, now we are strictly wholesale, I used the contractors plan room service. At first I thought it was a waste of time. You bid these jobs before construction begins usually, so it takes a while for the jobs to show up. But they did show up. And, they were typically good size jobs. I also think it give you credibility to the contractors. It keeps them from having to call sign companies and trying to get quotes. You do one quote and submit to all the contractors who are bidding on the job.We got a lot of Hospitals, Banks and government jobs.
  12. Yes it was Rocco.
  13. love Squidbillie's!!!!
  14. Anyone that would try to strong arm you or me, because of our participation on SS, is probably someone we don't want to do business with anyway. Net Gain!
