  1. It was my computer. I was able to view it today. Semper Fidelis.
  2. Small (5 employees at present), expanding, full service sign company looking for apprentice service tech/installer to learn the trade working with a master craftsman. All applicants must understand a few things: 1. If you're 10 minutes early, you're 5 minutes late. 2. We get paid to work with our hands. If you like to work with a hand in your pocket, you get half pay. 3. Short cuts are for getting to your boy/girl friend's house, not getting the job done. 4. There's always something to do. If you are still interested, and would like to work in a most rewarding and gratifying trade, plea
  3. I don't have a problem with helping people in need. I'm not tooting my own horn, but when a neighbor's house burned down, I went to the local grocer, gave him a sum of money, and told him to call John and tell him he had a line of credit for that amount, donated by a neighbor. Had I given that money to the government for disbursement, by the time John saw any money he would've gotten 10 cents on the dollar at best. For every dollar I gave the grocer, John got a dollar. And if John's house burned down while he was sitting on his back porch in a drunken stupor, he probably wouldn't have gotten a

  5. Yeah, I know. I get that all the time.
  6. I noticed the bottom line right away. But you also spelled Pina Collada wrong.
  7. It's been 20 years since I've done any sandblasting, but I don't think the technology has changed that much. If you're not set up for sandblasting expect to pay for some equipment including, besides sandblasting equipment, a nice table saw, planer, and a clamping table. You'll have to have a separate room for nothing but sandblasting, I imagine, and make sure you know the proper method for clamping and gluing. Clear redwood is what we used most, then cedar, though probably any wood can be used for sandblasting. We did a sign in Cypress once. It was like sandblasting rubber. Hope this helps.
  8. Don't know what you're talking about, Erik. I'm a year older than I was last birthday. It doesn't matter, though. I'm still young at heart. The bones? That's another story.
  9. Congratulations, Jet wen! I hope everything goes well for you.
  10. Here's a hint at what we're looking at. I'm sure you can tell the type of mounting from this pic. SG, the transformers are already in the letters and they are magnetic.
  11. We bid a job for an out of town sign company over a year ago, got the job, and started it today. 5' halo lit, self contained neon channel letters into brick. The backs of the letters are spaced 2" from the wall. Before I tell how these letters were installed (we installed according to manufacturer's instructions), I would like to know from anybody who wishes to participate how you would engineer these letters for installation. The letters are 5" deep aluminum channel letters and, as I said, 5' tall. They're all upper case and probably medium helvetica, or similar. Each letter has at least one
  12. Well, I guess we all have our preferences. I call these my work slippers. http://www.magnumboots.com/workboots/5990.html#here
