    Gerber AR600 6x10 router Has clamp table (not Vacuum) was in working condition and used weekly before we moved. The computer with the software crashed so that would need to be replaced but I have all of the software including Omega and artpath. Only known deficiencies were in the coolant system. One of the adjustable nozzles is broke and there is a slow leak in the tank. Should be repairable but we didn't because we mainly routed plastic and foam with it so coolant was not needed. It is not set

    We have a job that requires us to attach around fifty 4'x8' aluminum panels to an aluminum factory wall 80' up in the air. Has anyone worked with cordless pop-rivet guns ?   I would prefer Dewalt 20 volt since we have so many batteries ready to go, but Google only shows $1,700 rivet guns ( what the hell is that about ? ) On the other hand, I see Milwaukee cordless rivet guns for $190 ( but I have no other Milwaukee cordless tools or batteries ).   Love to hear from

    I have been a Watchfire dealer for years and I am very happy with them but I am looking for a cheaper second option for my customers who just cannot afford a Watchfire EMC. Just curious if anyone can give me direction on a cheaper sign that they have been satisfied with. Thank you!

    With Principal LED and Sloan's V-series (value line) LED lines hitting the market at extremely low pricing I noticed a surge in shops literally flocking to save on peanuts.   Here's a warning, be weary....It seems like Principal LED has taken a large step back in LED module quality as all their LED modules have gone all Constant Voltage.....no longer Constant Current.     Sloan's newest Value 4 line....the 2LED Module is now .96 watts per module with modest light output for t

    Any chance anyone out there has an older Watchfire EMC they've removed with a phone modem?  Our city has a board we installed back in 07 and the board works great, the phone modem is just shot.  Watchfire is no longer making that hardware.     Thanks!

    In case you’re living in the metro, gleaming lights shouldn’t be unfamiliar to you. These promoting methodologies will quite often be exceptionally normal as organizations attempt to grow their compass to a wide assortment of likely clients. In the midst of this large number of headways and arising patterns, a more up-to-date method for drawing in purchasers to actual stores exists. This can be accomplished by evolving the “brand” of your business, and custom neon signs are a decent method for t

  • The Sign Syndicate BrightON II LED Module


    Maybe I should have titled it "That BrightON Halo Illumination"

    Thought I would share a project where our new High-End 24 volt, .8watt BrightON II LED Modules were used.

    As I've discussed before in the past.  There is a difference and a gap between "Usable Light" and "Competitive Light".  The BrightON II is the most efficient (Light per power) LED Module in it's class, and it is the definition of Competitive Light.

    As explained here and suggested for spacing, it was chosen to use the 3" module spacer, and obviously  you'll see as you scroll down the spacing could have even been much farther apart.

    "......Anyway, Fairmont contacted me just prior to the time I realized Regency was going to give me the runaround. So at the time, I didn't think to check for feedback here (lesson learned obviously). They asked me to remove a Goodyear sign. Did that, then the Regency crap started, then I saw their feedback. That's about when they asked me to remove signs at a Kwik Car location. I told them I would do it but if they don't pay...."

  • 24V - Sign Cabinet LED Modules


    Double Sided Cabinet Light Spacing For LEDs

    Most Light Source Suppliers and Manufacturers won't show you examples let alone "numbers" of light readings on Sign Cabinet or Sign Projects from light source components they push like these I'm posting here, but....This is The Sign Syndicate!

    "Seeing is believing" as they say.

    So, one of the components I've been big on because of feedback and demand is a strong enough LED module that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, isn't proprietary where you need to buy their special clips, brackets, etc, and actually put out enough light without exaggerated "Usable Light" under too far spread spacing that's supposed to save you money that won't compete with other existing signs in the area of your project. 

    Biggest complaint from sign shops about cabinet LEDs....."I don't want to use a whole bunch of power supplies!"
