Hey Tim, I often think we are on parallel life paths (mine minus the talent). We are also looking at a newer cayenne for my wife because my '08 has been so ridiculously stellar in regards to...

LASER welding isn't easily evaluated by eye (unlike MIG/TIG). We do literally miles of LASER welds every day and without destructive testing or cut and etch or XRay inspection you're left to...

As an example, I just looked up a sub-assembly that we supply to one of the big three. This assembly is complete and e-coated (ready to install). We sell this to the mfg for roughly $24 and the...

This seems very odd, my best friend is the CEO of a fairly large land planning/survey company and it's essentially a full boat charge regardless if it's already on file. Those are the spoils of...

Very cool, my brother has a similar setup and does all kinds of cool stuff with it (in addition to heavy production work on stencils).

One thing I did notice is that the foam you cut appears to be...

Everyone has big swinging balls from from behind a keyboard (or from a boardroom in my case), hell I'm guilty of it. I say this because all of the prior posters know damn well that poor planning on...

Valid points, I would argue that falls under the umbrella of marketing but it's real regardless. I loved driving my buddies SWB CJ with sidepipes and no doors, it just felt cool as all get out. It...

No doubt they had their moment, I'd absolutely drive a 50's/60's Jeep for the nostalgia (while accepting the pain of ownership as a badge). But anything remotely recent is cartoonish trash, it's...

Absolute chit-box of the highest order, but then that never stopped folks from buying the normal Jeeps. The good reputation that Jeep has is one of the greatest marketing marvels of all time.

Very cool, you'll be fine. I drove my '77 930 every day for 5 years and it was a rock (until the head stud snapped). They are comically reliable for what was a super-car at the time.

I think you misinterpreted my post. I'm not calling your inquiry silly, I'm calling the top end toolbox industry silly. I'm shocked there is such a market for them still, that's all.

I appreciate...

Those "Pro" rollers and tops are asinine for a hobbiest. Everything is relative so if $5k means nothing to you by all means have at it but in reality a $500 roller (or better yet a used pro unit) is...

I'm with you, I was beyond stupid in my 20s. My worst was 140+ in my 930 on a two lane with my new/current wife in the passenger seat while passing a friend. I still cringe when I have vivid...

It's just a bad weld, it was like that when you put in on I assure you. I've been in the tube/pipe industry for over 20 years, that's a common flaw (that should have been caught in house).

It's a dying profession, stay away. No one talks to a vacuum salesman before snagging the latest hoover and it won't be long until there is no need for a car salesman either. Tons of pressure in...

This is my question as well. In my case the majority of the bearing walls were stick built so I would think ensuring level would be no-brainer (and simple). Mistakes can be made on anything though.

The house is essentially completed, the actual process of leveling the joists isn't the main concern.
