                That's a good one Gary!

                I say trash 'em.
                Most people do not have enough taste to like the signs.
                Also, I took those hooks off of the sign I have, in order to hang it on my wall at home.

                Keep up the incredibly obscure, arcane, wierd work, you badass you!!!

                    Crud, I received one of the "new" laminated cushion planks last week. It's made out of baltic birch plywood. During the 80's, I sold cushion planks made out of solid oak and ash. The price of solid wood drove me to use plywood by '85. I made about 1,500 plywood planks by '89. They were sold as Dura Plank. I would stamp any distributors name on the plank, along with stamped serial numbers which indiacated the date and the number of the plank. I also made and sold the Dura Rivet. A typical indented stamp might read, 78700926. That would be plank number 926, made July '87. I stamped the planks because I gave a one year guarantee and I needed to know when a plank was sold. I still have almost all of the plywood planks in my machines along with solid ones from 1982. AMF's plank looks good!!

                      AMF"S plank might look good but will it last [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif[/img] if you gave a whole year warranty with yours I wouldn't have bought them :p the good planks used to last longer then a year [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif[/img] I would rather pay a little more for parts and have them last
                      if yours were so good why didn't you give a five year warranty [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/confused.gif[/img] CRUD

                        CRUD, AMF never gave you a refund on a plank unless you received it broken. I limited the planks from one year after the date stamped on the plank, because some houses would try get a new plank after three or four years use and then claim that they just put it in. You can tell if a plank is more than a year old. I only had to replace about six planks in eight years. Six replacements out of 2,500+, isn't too bad. CRUD, if you'de like, I'll send you a plank free and you tell me what you think. There are a few blanks in the basement that were never completed. You pay for the shipping. Deal?

                              They were the best planks ever made because of the layered plywood design the plank took a lot of the stress off of the weldment....kind of like an OSHA approved plank for carpenters. It has give but wont snap. It would eventually splinter at the rear side where the rivets came out but if used with the durra-rivet and today's cushion facing it would last for years!!!

                              I asked the pin boy if he was interested in manufacturing these again and no reply....I guess I'll have to look into it my self. [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif[/img]
