Start a delivery company that will pick up items from wholesalers, suppliers or home improvement centers and deliver them to
- contractors in the field so they don’t have to drop everything and run to the supply stores with their big service trucks just to pick up a part or two they are missing.
- homeowners who don’t want to have to run out to get parts
It would save big time and money for the Contractors who’ve got men and equipment sitting idle waiting for parts, the Clients who are being charged $125 an hour for some guy to drive around town or the homeowners who have their fingers stuck in a pipe to keep the water from flooding their home.
Put a couple of kids on scooters and a couple in trucks and viola’ a business is born!
How to “rip” thin material on site with a skill saw
Today, as part of a large remodel for Felicia’s client, we modified a cabinet to accommodate a new oven. We added a shelf so that the Microwave could sit just above the oven and we took some of the veneer from our other cuts that we had made to open the cabinet for a wider appliance. I used some of the “harvested” veneer to overlay the new shelf that would be exposed between the appliances. The veneer cut was 1/4 by 3/4 by 22 1/2, a difficult piece to cut with a skill saw, so I pin nailed the veneer to a piece of 2X6 and ripped it on that. I saved the last cuts for the ones that released it from the pin nails that held it to the 2X6. The saw was easy to handle on a large cutting surface, the cut was good, the project looks great and I still have all my fingers and toes. 🙂
