Well worth the extra money for good sheet stock! You pay $150 for blow holes and fills...

That's how all the first aid kits I've ever needed to use are. All the bandaids gone and two dozen other things I've never seen before and dont know what they do. If my injuries at work require more than a bandaid I need medical attention anyways I figure.

I often skip even bothering to go looking for a bandaid and just wrap it in electrical tape.

I'm first aid certified but if it's just me who's hurt ain't no one got time for that.

Re: New Trailer Build!


Well been super busy since last post. Wife popped out a kid, business is booming, no sleep because of the baby but.. I finally started to break down my sheet goods to build some drawers. Not following all the measurements in Ron Paulks plans because I like wide drawers over narrow ones.

First few banks are going to be 28.5 inches wide.

electrical, painters, duct, packing... whatever works. it sucks when you get one that wont stop bleeding and tape wont stop it either. twice i cut myself really bad and im stuck on a roof or on top of a pergola bleeding all over the customers house and here they come.... randomly checking in and im trying like hell to hide the blood.. ill stick my arm in a lead jack or wrap it up with a shingle.. lol i hate bleeding all over a customers house. thats so gross.

Thats why I like the dewalt rack so much. One of my arms broke, was my fault overloaded a box and speed bumbs. Dewalt exchanged with out wanting to see a receipt.
The replacement folding arms seem to be build a lot better.

The jarring in the trailer can be a lot more than one expects.

the roads are very messed up here. And the city putting in speed bumps in 50mph zones doesn't help.

Finally moved my small parts rack to its permanent location. So far I'm liking it.
