They're both out drinking tonight, spending that money before they earn it.


One isn't going to show up.

How do you do that exactly, seems like you need two separate burners and control systems.

I did a job in Vermont a few years back at a famous ice cream factory. Luckily it wasn't a shutdown but I can only imagine what it would have been like if locals would have been on the crew.

Typical job, half the parts are missing, and about half those actually on site are either completely wrong or maybe workable, with some redesign of the piping schematic. We are about 85 hours into the job and about 45% of the work is done.

The pipe threader they sent is broken, they sent the wrong welding rod and left out the 4” x 3” forged reducing elbow, but sent (3) 2-1/2” elbow (no 2-1/2” pipe on the job), they did get the correct plasma cutter consumables.

One of the minions left all of the gaskets in the shop, so a new threader and hopefully correct gaskets and other parts, are scheduled to be delivered by noon tomorrow.
