    I really don't have the extra jingle to pop for the front row stuff, so I tend to build and fabricate what I need. Here's the shrinker/stretcher stand I made. Stu

    So, for the benefit of free advertising on here...........do we get 50% of some equipment? Maybe an extra 10% for being an Alliance member? Or what the hell, throw in some cool shirts too?

    SWEET!!!! I'll bet your neighbors love it too:p
     
  12. Grabbed this from another thread:

    "Hello everyone, my name is Shane from Baileigh Industrial in Manitowoc Wisconsin, right on Lake Michigan. We are trying to expand into the Hot Rod and restoration industry in a serious way."

    You know, lots of members have businesses, including hotrod, equipment and fabrication related ones, but there's a not so fine line between being a helpful participant and blatant self promotion.

    Baileigh Inc may have the best intentions but on the other hand, no one wants to be 'used' or feel like they're being exploited.

    Could you explain to me how someone coming here and making us aware of new products that relate to hot rod car crafting make you feel exploited? If you mean by selling something and making a profit, get a life, that's what the word "business" is all about.
    I remember everyone falling all over themselves when Miller came on here and offered wire welders and plasma cutters at discount rates, anyone see any difference with this product line?
    I suspect this thread is a lot like the one about Speedway mispackageing a set of windshield posts. What a bunch of whiners a lot like the guy who started that thread. Although I do see the point from all of those who have never made a mistake in their lives and there are hundreds of them here.:rolleyes:

  16. I feel the same way...........................Now, who wants to see my old tool?

    Here is a 1949 Wysong 8' stomp shear. It was bought new by a local company that went out of business. It was used to cut .010" thick aluminum, 24" wide right in the center.... thats it. It was used in a pattern company and thats all they did.

    It weighs mulitple tons, and you dont want to know what I paid for it... needless to say, I dont need it, but the price was right. It will cut 16ga full length.

  25. How's this for yard art! Not mine, It's in Mankato Mn, where it was originally manufactured. This would work some heavy stuff!

    Does that nibbler walk around much with those wheels under it? I have a Vibroshear of similar size that i have put onto a similar trolley, but am waiting the electrician to wire it up.
