- Feb 27, 2009I am not trying to sound rude. If I did offend I am sorry. That was
not the intention. I am to used to my vendors jumping at the chance
to sell a product during the hard times now. I am a fabricator I run
with strict guidelines at my shop. My job is to get the job done now.
That is why I am still in buisness and the others around me are
folding up. I have to set aside time for my stuff between jobs. That
time is on the way. I have to do something now or wait another year
to get started. The other gentleman said he has been waiting since
last fall for info.I left a fax number and 2 seperate e-mails. I
can't bring myself to just send money without any information.Plus I
do not know how much or what I get with the plans. Everything is one
big question mark right now.
