Re: The skill/equipment/efficiency balance

Screenman and T4K: Your responses are ambiguous. These are exactly the type of comments that provide little additional value to the neophyte W/S repair person that is looking for advice beyond what is provided in an eight hour training course and/or a 30 minute CD/DVD. This forum is replete with sim...

T4K;

When does warmth become heat? How warm is warmth? How hot is heat?

Re: The skill/equipment/efficiency balance

Bill; I notice that your location is Alabama. If you were in Minnesota or Maine, or Manitoba or Alaska you might well consider heat to be your friend. A major problem that I've noticed on this forum is that some techs who post comments choose to do so without the benefit of perspective. Different st...

Re: $150 for delta kit

1. There are no stupid questions; however, 2. WSR is a far cry from rocket science, therefore, 3. I would wager that probably 99% of all technical questions have already been addressed. Consequently, 4. This forum has, intentionally or not, aggregated a comprehensive database of technical insight. H...

Re: $150 for delta kit

Screenman raises an excellent point (jeeze, did I just say that?). Anyway, the point about thinking for yourself is this: I would wager that the majority of successful W/S repair personnel who have been in the business for a decade or two at least are those who did not have the dubious luxury or cru...

Re: What PSI is used to inject the resin into the crack?

As you probably have deduced by now, there is a world of naysayers out there. Typically, naysayers are not particularly well versed in thinking outside the box. What you are proposing may or may not work but then you never know until or unless you try. Success is generally 10% inspiration and 90% pe...

Re: The skill/equipment/efficiency balance

In addition to Brent's post of 11/11 on this thread you all can refer to his post of 6/25/2012 in the "Star Break" thread. After you all have read and considered what he has advised you might read Screenman's posts on 11/9/13; 5/28/13; 3/20/13; 2/1/13; 6/24/12; and 6/25/12 among others. Point being,...

Re: Which Insurance Companies Claim WSRs will NOT increase r

This is a perfect example of the shortcomings of this forum and forums like it: You get some self-styled Einstein who opines on a subject and when asked to elucidate and expand on his/her position suddenly gets a terminal case of laryngitis. So to all you 'smartest-guys-in-the-room' ; if you're unwi...
