    If you had to start from scratch what euipment would your "Dream Shop" have including hardware, software, and material brands? Let's pretend money's not a problem but you don't have enough to not have to work. hehehe

    A huge wet bar around the entire perimeter of my office, work area, computer room and vinyl room.

    • 200 ton air conditioning unit.
    • We’ll keep warm from the distillery in the basement.
    • A huge grill for lunchtime. Hot dogs go real good with:beer .
    • Glass walls in every room [except the MENS room], so I don’t have to turn on any lights…. it gives your head a better flavor in natural sunlight.
    • All the workers would be computer driven machines and we’ll just sit back and watch them work while sipping our suds away [I look out for my employees].
    • No grass to cut, just macadam all around.
    • A limousine service to pick me up to back and forth from home to work and if my wife doesn’t like it, well…. I’ll need a couch without glass walls. [I snore.]
    • Last, but not least…. I would want a helicopter landing pad to fly from Milwaukee and back with fresh brewskies.



    Yeah, ain’t it just fun to dream………………… :Sleeping:




    :thankyou:

    There's something to be said for a well-stocked bar. Grey Goose anyone?

    This is my ideal shop.

    1/2 of the girls break all design rules and and the other half do the signs in crayon. I'm not concerned, with our open view into the production area from the front of the store, we have the most loyal customer base ever. Most of the customers need signs weekly, amazingly, and have no problem waiting while they are produced.

    Weasel, you've got too much time on your hands..and not enough women.
    My dream shop would have all the tech stuff, including a rapid proto-type synthesiser, which would create the ultimate employee...
    (see attached)...Cheers!...Ken

    rapid proto-type synthesiser? I've already got one of those. (see pic) I don't know if adding the beer hat has made her more or less hot. If she's drunk, then that an automatic *more hot*

    Our shop has a strict Wet-Application only policy.

    Hey Quick Draw..A double-barrelled hard-hat is good for employee safety!
    Cheers!

    I hope this answers your question Wannabe. Sometimes we just take a different meaning here. By the way, our shop kind of looked like that last summer except the average age was 15 years older.

    It's good to have shop help but also good to have "on the field" help as well

    A good window graphic installer.
