Hi Petem, Only 5 of us check in pretty regularly and an occasional "drifter" with an oddball question or two. But after all this time even this "gang of five" is beginning to wear thin. Three are no longer working in the trade. Just Mark and me are still active. But that hasn't kept us from bantering and posing questions and answers all this time. But - - - - now that Les has stepped down I don't think there will be too much left to talk about having to do with alarm systems. Good to see you're still around and kicking.
Yeah, I've tried to rationalize that a number of times. If you don't consider the labor and machinery costs, drilling holes into and making a big piece of metal a smaller lighter piece of metal seems to be counter intuitive to charge money for that. I mean, if you added the labor and machinery cost and made it BIGGER, it would seem more acceptable some how. I'm thinking that the new advancements in 3D printers just might do that though - - - - Right? Now you can REALLY charge a lot. Now your making something out of nothing. 8->
