Good morning guys.

Our pilot is out flying jobs in Iowa, Minnesota & North Dakota. He will be gone a few days. That leaves just the two of us full time guys here at the office.

Our new printer came in yesterday. It takes four people to pick the printer up to put it on it's stand. The trucking company said the box weighed 467 pounds. Getting it into the building was tough. Now I need to round up a couple of friends to help pick the monster up and put it on the stand. The printer is a Epson 11880. It is replacing or little 44 inch Epson 9800.

The other printer was a lightweight, it only took two people to move it

We are selling it to a regular customer of ours. Our old printer is WAY better than what he is using now.

Our printer before that one was a monster 62 inch printer. It was a solvent based printer that smelled real bad when it printed. We paid over 30 grand for it and it died in less than three years. The manufacture orphaned it so parts were not available unless we signed up for a maintenance contract that was 5 grand per year. We literary pushed it to the curb and some dude came buy to get it for scrap.

I found a black neck tie out in the street in front of my house a couple of days ago. It is an Arrow brand. You could wear it to put your water pump on.

There is a bumper sticker for Rovers that says "Watch for falling parts." Found out why.

On the way to have lunch with Glen yesterday I noticed a new vibration when turning. It kinda felt and sounded like a cv joint going out. Figured I would be repairing the 4 wheel drive stuff on the rover when it got really bad. Walking out from Glens office I noticed a couple of lug nuts sticking out much farther than the others on the drivers side rear wheel. Got the lug wrench out and tightened those two and the rest were a turn loose. Checked all the other lugs and they were good. Driving to lunch the vibrations and noises were gone. Whew! It would not have been fun to be cruising down the highway and have a wheel come off!

I know I torqued ALL the lugs to spec when I bled the brakes 3 weeks ago. A friend that helped pump the pedal bleeding the brakes specifically remembers me torquing the drivers rear too.
