    The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.

    Our trucks are all white and unmarked. There’s only a few companies that mark their trucks and they are the “big” companies who’s strategy is to saturate the market with name recognition to get their phone to ring but do less than stellar work and have a high customer and employee turnover rate.

    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?

    How do they work on lath and plaster? I have problems when cutting the lath and it shakes and cracks the plaster up to a foot away. If I can get neat a joist where the lath is mounted, I can keep the plaster from cracking.

    I do prefer the plaster with with wire mesh much better.

    Lath and plaster is hard no matter what you do but the diamond blades will cut through the wood lath it just wears out the blade quicker.

    You said in post 17 as you were bragging about how much better and smarter than jt you are that you dont put ads on your vans and trucks. I simply stated it was illegal in Alabama and only the weekend warriors trying to avoid permits and inspections work from unmarked vans.

    As a matter of fact your post that i was replying to didn't really have anything to do with this thread. It was really just you bragging.
