Common Sense Economics - Part ? (whatever number I'm on:) $2 Spray Paint and Lame Ass Excuses

Greetings fellow Scaffs and other scaffold support type people. I realize I've been away for a bit, but hey I've been working. Today's rant is on one of my ultimate pet peeves. Color coding. Since no one seems to get the flippin point and just rolls their eyes or comes up with some shitty excuse why they can't go out in the yard with a tape measure and a technical manual and go huff some spray paint for a bit, I will try and explain this in terms…

For all of you who ship and receive material, you should read this. Especially if you are in charge of re-renting material for an existing project where you have to match equipment types.

You especially need to know if you are using Imperial material, IE. SAE sizes, 2' 3' 4' etc. or…

Scaffold Myth Busters in Forum Section

Greetings ladies and gentlemen. Come one come all to our own little version of "Myth Busters". You ask the questions and I'll see if I can get those highly educated people to answer them. I have approached the fine people at DH Glabe and Associates about putting to rest some of those things we have all been told on the job site by that grumpy individual we have, or maybe still do, call "Boss". We are still working out the detail but if you click over to the forum…

Revenue vs Non-Revenue Generating - A Lesson in Common Sense Economics

Greetings from the sweltering Mid West. During the heat of this obnoxious summer I realize I have promised you a rant on this topic and have not sat down to flesh out the details. 

Revenue Generating: anyone responsible for committing acts of service that bring revenue into the company. Overly simplified it would be the people who actually do the work that out clients…

Where to find answers ...Part 2

This is part 2 of I don't really know how many parts as I search to define the answers to the questions I get asked constantly. Todays topic will be manufacturer guidelines. I think this is probably the most overlooked items on the internet, in the local branch offices and on the back shelf under that book about how to sell stuff on e-bay. The manufacturers guidelines, also called Safety Rules, Technical manuals and or other literature about the specific system you are using I would be willing… Continue

Reflections and other oddities 2009

AS I am sitting here trying to come with something worth writing about about I must admit I am a little dismayed at the current trend of the larger companies in becoming more diversified and trying to do more things like insulation and other items not scaffold related. I must admit I am from the old school of do one thing and do it well. I'm not sure that I would be a good insulator or an electrician, but I understand I am a pretty fair scaffold builder. I look at the things I am currently… Continue
