    Group Sourcing Metal Ideas

    One thing some people neglect to look at is that they ARE running a business. If I can back up a step I’m not saying I like MS or that I don’t like them. Businesses need to make money to keep the doors open. Yes, price gauging is probably going to have the opposite effect. But I agree with...

    digital mic's

    I’ll always remember the first time I cut off a piece of 1”x5” aluminum to be 6” long. I used a tape, marked the line, hucked it in the bandsaw and cut it off. Feeling pretty proud I asked now what? The shop owner said grab the mic and measure it. It was 6.197” long if I remember right or...
