    How hard can it be anyway?

    Heck, I'd be willing to pay,,, maybe $20 bucks to have a broken bone fixed.

    .....

    Don't laugh,,,, that's how these folks see the world....

    ...

    i wonder if anyones ever tried to use coupons for that kind of stuff . they try everything else

    what do ya think they use when they put a plate in a spine or baddly broken lag/arm?? SS coopons and a few screw's. they should probly weld it insted of the screw's but i dont think they could figure out how to work the TIG setup, after all they are only doctor's. so screws will have to do.
    dads had a plate and some screws in his foot before . problem with welding it was ya cant weld steel to bone
    welding...its awsome

    Plus I have a excellent network of spies,,,,, and they often give me advance notice of what's coming so I can get a head start, or even have something done before I'm officially asked for it.

    .
    Oh, I love to do that! Give someone a part that's still hot and tell them to let it "marinate" for a few minutes; that always pleasantly surprises them
    The problem for me though is that I get asked to do so many different things that my shop isn't always set up for it. I can be welding on a tractor one day and building aluminum flower pots the next day. I still need to find my niche market...

    EXCELLENT THREAD! My 2 cents:
    Dabar39: I think I'll make up a bunch of 50% coupons and pass them out in your area I"m dying to know what you did to that guys job when he said take what I give you or go home with nothing !!!
    I'm a softy, so I wouldn't take a nickel from him, and just say, "I'm sorry to have caused you grief..." Get his license plate number, and a month later, call the cops saying it's a stolen vehicle !!! Oh well, if you have "nicer" ways to get even, send me a private message

    If any customer calls you back the next day, telling you "ok, you fix it" (after knowing they called everyone else), I think you have enough business to tell them, "sorry, got new jobs, don't have time for you now, how's about 3 weeks? I have time then!"


    regarding shop rates as people ask questions, give advice, etc. too bad people don't take that seriously!

    My wife got her masters in Social Work. I tell her all these "professionals":
    Higher their degree is, the more common sense they lose...

    As others have said, good to read through this just to know I'm not alone...

    My grandfather used to say "He's so educated he's lost all his common sense..." Ain't that the truth!

    My Grandfather lived from 1888 to 1963,
    and his term like that was saying someone was, 'An educated fool'.
