    -Norm, The hoist is handmade from scraps. I bought the ram from Northern tools. I was worried my trailer would sag on the corner its mounted to but it does real well. Its also handy for loading my MM210 when I am by myself which is most of the time.
    -Bill C. I had gotten some great work from a paper co. called Weyerhauser. Things were looking good and then they got bought out by International Paper. I am now listed as a vendor for IP but they are shutting down plants left and right. A weld shop that I worked for last year has all but shutdown. He had about ten guys working for him.
    -Fusion king, Sorry things have slowed for you also, I don't know what the future holds for everyone but I am going to try and hold on. Hopefully when the economy recovers the guys still in business will make up there losses. Happy thanksgiving everyone, Adam

    FusionKing, HI; I'm sorry for putting a Dampper on your day!!! Here in Canada, things from what i've read and seen myself, are NOT as Bad as they are in the U.S.A. For one thing we have not sold our Country or Morgaged it to China the way it seems your Govt. has done for you! I TRUELY HOPE things pick up for you personally and your economy , South of the Border!!!...... Norm :

    Things have slowed up in Michigan, I'm told Michigan has been hit the hardest with all of our auto plants shutting down.

    I had a slow spring but got busy by May 15th and am still busy thank god, I'm expecting to be really slow come january and not sure what the spring will be like.

    Most big fab shops are about out of business and I suspect me picking up what few customers they still had is whats helping me now.

    Even in Alberta, it's slowed down quite a bit, so even my firm has to diversify to keep afloat. Going to New York next week to pick up repair work for the Sulzer line of spray machines.

    The welding covers support my business quite a bit, and the reels should help as well. Gotta buy that new bike for next spring ya know.

    Default work still steady

    We have been in business going on 3 years and our work load has been steadliy increasing. Our business revolves around the farming community and small busineses plus we have a local heat/ac company that contributes much business. The work load has not dropped off even though many in the area is out ot work or very slow. We do from 2 to 4 thousand a week which isn't getting rich but not bad for one ole' man of 62. The wife keeps the office in order. We are blessed and never fail to freeely give the Lord his tenth. To us, it is no mistory how our business continues to grow..We wish a turn around for all in our trade.....
