  1. Favorite rolling work chair?

    I had one with the broken back i had set aside, it was kinda not broke looking until you sat back and did a roll over. It somehow kept appearing from where i kept it and getting used and almost breaking someones neck. Now i take the backs off the second i get them lol.

    Dannnnggg How do you even start to get that off? Ice scraper ain't gonna do jack I wonder if it is thick enough to shrink/contract enough to break glass

    F this weather. -4 degrees (realfeel of -26) foot of snow with the top being an inch of ice. Must be getting old, my ankles don't like this cold.
  7. Where can I hire experienced window tinters?

    I agree, worth a shot. I think that's the basis of most non-competes, kind of the hail mary pass of agreements. I will add, contracts can be a double edged sword that can backfire.
  8. Where can I hire experienced window tinters?

    Non-competes are useless and unenforceable and also bs. I worked for a very large high end construction firm in top administration and they wanted me to sign one, my Lawyer said it was a joke and couldn't be enforced and if i couldn't get work because of it i could possibly sue them to continue to pay me for the remainder of the agreement. Also, you're a tint shop, what trade secrets are there that you can't find on youtube or facebook? Waste of time and money. They also don't keep the employee from working for your tint shop competition a block away as a janitor or front desk person or whatever else they'll say they're working there as to keep them putting tint on windows. They happily signed it knowing it won't do anything. Anyone considering a non-compete may want to check state laws, especially CA.
  9. Green turbo

    Was it the Fusion green turbo or the old style green turbo? The Fusion seem a little more consistent and keep the edge. I've used the orange crush but kept getting a skipping type of thing on the film, even with the newest version, so i've used it for cleaning. I cut a Orange crush down to about 2" and modified one of those extended blade handles to put the orange crush in it, it worked great until i lost it

  11. Best way to remove film?

    I was looking to try this product, and follow up with ATR for remaining adhesive -

  13. All the new tools lately, i have a ton of them, multiple tools that all do the same job well, tools i didn't really need but you know you gotta try them out. I also see people on youtube doing complete jobs with just a yellow turbo. If you could only pick 2 or 3 tools to do everything, what would you pick?
  14. Aluminum Glass Stand

    I also do steel construction and we've used alum mullion like that as framing around the glass in those big buildings in NYC that have a glass facade, so i'll agree that's the good shiz you got there, and not cheap. Just a tip if ever needed, the L shaped angle piece at the base, if it doesn't give you the needed bracing i've used a piece of square tube like a 6x6 tube and it restrains that bend that may cause sway at the inside corner of the L, in your case if you replaced those L's with a same length piece of 6x6 tube or bigger, the tube will have a bracing action. Also you can lay a piece of wood or alum channel across from tube to tube to act as a shelf under the glass, or light tubing all the way across. Just my input in case there's a 7th mod ;-)
  15. Aluminum Glass Stand

    The base seems like it would need some sort of bracing, i picture the glass moving back and forth when pressing against it. Is it rigid?
