    Re: Cutting 6x6 tubing, hiring help

    I am wondering if an Employer can use a series of tests with out pay prior to employing to weed out bull$hitters and or not worthy applicants. That would save a whole lot of issues, lost income, unemployment insurance, workers comp insurance, payroll taxes and having to terminate bad apples.

    I know that sucks paying someone for mistake they made.
    In California I had pay a 8 day even only work for hour and had enough.

    I do not know what you pay per hour just money down the drain.

    At one I 25 working for me
    I made more money just doing working by my self.

    I found employees was just a big leak money ever were.

    Sorry for your problem

    Hi 911, can you send someone by to take a report of a Terroristic Threat made by an employee who was terminated. Thanks.

    Probably have to make a second report when his mom stops by to kick your ***.

    Thing I like more and more about the steel center is they pay for their miscuts and generally it's cheaper than having a so called employee cut the material as well.

    It's called "An Interview".

    The few places I applied had me lay down some welds after the verbal interview.

    I told him I'd give him some money, also told him the more he keeps threatening me and cussing is the less money he gets, and if he shows up and starts cussing at me then he doesn't get a dime.

    The safest way is to mail a check to him .
    He has threatened you and the check show you paid him. Use the mail with signature required.
    How you have cover your but.

    I spent a lot of my time on but covers from ever where.

    As tape goes the worse was 120" and 12 ' I do not know how many time a employees would make cut for 120" when I had 12 feet on the cut list or need cut 12 feet at 120 inches.

    isn't that what a pre employment interview and weld/burn test covers? i see ads saying come prepared to weld. after reading the job application i believe a dozen follow up questions and a 30 minute hands on demo of weld and torch technique would tell all.

    this is good advice. you probably got more to lose than your former employee who may have a screw loose.

    Re: Cutting 6x6 tubing, hiring help

    Here's a grinder and a couple cut off wheels.Clamps, squares, soap stone, levels and stuff are quite obvious. Here's some one inch tube.Build me a 16.25 x 16.25" cube box, all 45* cuts, as good as you can get it. Take your time.

    That's it.

    I have a pen. First thing I do when I get a feet/inches drawing is cross out those dimensions, and replace them with inches. I'll admit to having cut a 14" piece for a 1' 4" line on the drawing. And, I'm the shop owner, guy who pays the bills, buys the material, etc. I should know better.

    I guess thats ok if your only building small stuff but what happens when you get into bigger jobs like 20 or 40 foot sections, that could get to be a whole chit load of inches to be messing around with.

    Depends on the accuracy you need. If nearest inch is good enough, feet is fine. If fractional inches, it's pretty miserable to go though with 37 feet, 5 3/4", when you could just put 449.75.

    So then how do you find where 449.75 is on your tape measure.

    I always calculate long railing sections in inches, feet will get too confusing, a fabricator should have all the 1/16th increment decimals memorized.

    Inches, you don't need no stinking inches the best way to calculate railings is in mm, try it once and you'll see why.

    On a 40' stanley, it's between 449 and 450".

    Are you implying that 100'+ crank up tapes only have feet and inches listed?

    I know you can buy 500 foot tape
    Most my tapes are 25 foot that works great. I set one at each tool.
    I just do not want to use longer one
    I have a 50 foot and 500 foot witch I do not use
