    It's been a long time.....

    Now, that was funny! I bet only one out of a hundred people that read that will remember what you're talking about....... What are you doing with yourself if you sold everything?

    It's been a long time.....

    Hi there, everyone! I was inspired to visit this board today when I received a "Happy Birthday" email from the PWI board. It occurred to me that I never updated my email address on this board, so that would be why I didn't receive the same email from here. So, here I am. I thought I...

    Zebra stripes/shadowing???

    Be careful, because in some cases there is nothing you can do about it. Often times they use the very cheapest, low quality aluminum and coatings on those surfaces, and you can very easily completely remove the finish if you're not careful. Try a test patch before you do a large area...

    Asking for trouble

    I have no way of knowing for sure, but I honestly feel you would be dead wrong about your assumption of his identity. While years ago there were disagreements about rules, and some disrespect shown by said "guy"..........there was never even a fraction of the negativity in that...

    condo ?

    I hope he did, but most likely he didn't. They're hard jobs to get because almost anyone can do them. The tricky ones, such as townhouses that are 3 stories high on one side, are easier to sell.

    "A PWNA conversation"for members and non members

    There actually is a limit in the bylaws of the PWNA as to how many board members are allowed to be distributors, etc. There are many more people on the Board of Directors that don't distribute/manufacture then you think. There are two ways to look at everything. Having distributors...

    Ahhhhh man What the heck happen!!

    Also be sure to update your virus definitions. I keep mine on "Live Update" and it does it automatically. You have to pay for that service every year, or upgrade the software and you get it for another year. Every spring I buy the new version, and get it most of the time for free...

    Trying to know as much as possible!

    My local water company has a bulk fill line at their headquarteres............its a 2 inch line, fills my tank in no time. They charge 5 cents per gallon, and a minimum charge of $10 per month. I almost never fill it there though............mostly, I just leave a job with the same...

    Growing into Your Equipment

    I rent a garage on a local farm. He has several garage buildings........and built a new one last year. The garage he was building was to be 50' long and 36' deep.........with four 10' wide overhead doors. Before he started construction, I asked him to put an overhead door on the short...

    condo ?

    Discount it for sure, or you will never get the job. Use your best judgement. Try to determine how long each building will take you and price it out by time. I'm not suggesting you give an hourly rate. Use the amount of time you think it will take to determine your price per building...
