    ​I get the sensor today, take it apart, very easy to figure out, I did not have schematic of the washer, however the top relay is N/O SPSP, so it always open and close when pressure apply, may be for motor only run when water present. The other relay ...

    You have to look to your customers for the TL decision.  If you need them, price them right.  Around the same you charge for a 20 lb is probably a good start. The TL will get abused, period.  People double stuff one just to get their clothes wet as ...

    Stan & others, If I ordered brand single pocket new dryers ... we would again get the large swing out bottom door on left hand hinges if the manufacturer again would allow that specification.  One of us workers just wheels along on a mechanics creeper ...

    Curt, You are right. It can't hurt and just may help. Once I pulled a dryer motor for a bearing job. When I was putting the rotor back, I wasn't sure....but I think I nicked the coil on the stator. Sure enough I did.  When I put the whole job back ...

    It is hard to look at equipment mix without knowing your pricing strategy.  For example, you say people love top loaders.  If you are charging $1 per load get rid of them.  If you are getting $4 a load buy new ones.  These are the extremes, but the illustrate ...

    Those of us who have computerized POS systems probably have built-in CC processors which may have defined CC systems.  These systems may require a specific processing company (our system requires a specific company). Does anyone have this same situation ...

    I can't speak highly enough of our move to DCM (Dollar Coins Mostly).  Customers love it, attendants love it, store managers love it and I love it.  Get yourself a good dollar drop (I use IMONEX - which have been flawless) and it should be smooth sailing.  ...

    I was very disappointed to find that my credit card acceptance costs were well over 5%, several years ago.  I complained bitterly to my provider, who switched me to a completely new plan.   The key change was to get away from tiered pricing and switch ...

    Great work Phu! Half the work is pulling the motor out of the dryer! Have you considered doing motor rebuild work on the side? ------------------------------ Paulie B Store Owner/ Employee Mr Machine New York City NY ------------------------------

    Simon, I agree. It's easy to spread too far out and waste ad dollars.  Unless your mat blows away every other mat in nearly every way, you should stay in your customers comfort zone.  The odds of any any decent number of customers passing more than ...

    I feel your anxiety.  I have a brand new card store that opened about 1.5 miles from me.  Half the size, similar hours.  I've driven by a couple of times on Sunday and each time, the only person there was the Attendant with her feet kicked up.  If I see ...

    Hi Simon - First thing I would say is don't use Google express....on the surface it sounds right but you end up bidding on words that have nothing or very little to do with your marketing initiatives. With that said, if you are looking to drive self-serve ...

    Not to change the specifics of our friend's Stan's post ... but is seems like from Larry Adamski's actual experience with both single pocket dryers & stacked dryers there is a frequency issue that should not be ignored. Is it true that a high lint producing ...
