Knew a dude who worked in the movie business doing props, mostly space suits and armor. Did a lot of big name productions while working for another who finally retired. So he starts his own business, he had the contacts and a good reputation. But he wasn’t getting the contracts. He knew who he was bidding against and what their rates were.

Finally, one of his contacts tells him he was quoting way too low and everyone was expecting him to either cut corners or not deliver. He was told they typically dismissed both the highest and the lowest bids.

So he raised his rates, a lot, and started getting the contracts. He told me from working as a defense contractor, and in the entertainment industry, it was essentially the same. No basis in reality.

The Pulkkila ridge road? Same lake, this is from the lighthouse pavilion cafe downtown. Come in the summer and I'll give you a spin through roads much more awesome finished with the best franks n chips I know by the lakeside.

Did 4 years in the defense sector. Can confirm rumors of it always being the lowest bidder are complete BS

Been wanting an RMR for my EDC gun for years, found a great deal on a barely used one.

Also desperately need to stock up on fasteners.

Both cost about the same, almost to the dollar.

What do?

Hypermotard 1100S the weight-shavening.
Bandit 1200 cafe/fighter that will never get finished at this rate.
Turbo Busa v2 2017 Buildoff.
Turbo Busa V1.2 2016 Buildoff.
Turbo Busa v1.1
919 Hornet build'n'flip, lotsa electrical diagnostic info in there.

Re:tihar. 6mm ID seamless stainless tube has proven to be quite the challenge to get at any reasonable price. Ebay sells but pieces are too short besides doubt a longer one would still be straight upon arrival... Might need to up the caliber, checked with neighbor who knows a lot about guns, air powered -> no laws apply, can shoot bowling balls if I want.
