Hey everyone, don't get to come on as much as I use to. I started a new job at the end of January and been pretty busy with it. I have been enjoying driving my wagon a couple days a week to work, had to put new tires on it. The old ones only had 15,000 miles on them but time slipped away on me and they were 7 years old and had to go. My dad and I still tinker in our shop around the house, seems we are just getting slower but I was just so excited about the tubing bender I got for the shop and had to share. I wanted one for awhile but never could justify spending much money on one but the opportunity presented itself at my new job. I work at 2 diffrent shops, one in New Orleans, Louisiana and the other in Picayune, Mississippi. The one in Mississippi had equipment sitting in the corner taking up space. I was sent there to help get the store organized after it was left in disarray from a manager that wasn't managing and told to fix, sell or junk that equipment not being used. They have 3 broke tire balancers, older but working Coats rim clamp tire changer, 2 portable alignment machines and a pipe bender. I told the owner I wanted to buy the tire changer and tubing bender. He asked how much the bender was worth and I told him I would look it up. After looking it up, I figured I didn't want to spend even a couple thousand on it but it was worth more than I thought and told him. He decided to sell me the tire changer and pipe bender (throw in the pipe and mufflers left there) for $750!!!! I told him I couldn't but he insisted, told me when he hired me he didn't know what to expect but was happy with me and wanted me to consider it a deal and sign on bonus for working for him! I told him today I would try to sell the 2 alignment machines for him and was surprised when I told him what they cost.
