There's madness in the air...although we're not sure how much longer our Combo madness is going to last.

We primarily do HVAC work, lots of 16 ga and thinner cutting with unistrut and angle iron on occasion. What 4.5" cut off wheels would be the best for us. Long life and cutting speed is more important than cost.

While we don't have them on our website, we carry Walter Surface Technologies cut off wheels which are considered some of the best in the industry. Give us a call (888.301.3007) and we can discuss.

I sent you folks an email with my order

Repeat customer

Please do more specials... the "other" guy is kicking your butt on pricing for flap discs... even better while we all appreciate the pirate discount run more bulk deals (ongoing for pirate customers) on here so we can compare apples to apples... capitalism is a good thing

Thanks

So.. I wanted to let Pirate folks know that Roark was immediately responsive to my above post.

Frank Woods, their sales person and pirate post watcher, reached out to me immediately and actually called me. He said he monitors the site regularly and saw my post.

We spoke on the phone for about twenty minutes or so and he explained how Roark is listening and that they intend to do some more bulk pricing on their site, lowering the costs of some of their hot products.

I think, of note, was the fact that he said they don't mind the little customers as well as the fab shops. He figures if their company treats the one car garage folks no differently than bulk customer that they will eventually build loyalty. We discussed at length other vendors and bidding apples for apples on products ( for me flap discs which I use a lot of)

He went on to tell me about some new lines they are going to carry and asked me if I would take a sample and give them my fair assessment of the product.. I didnt ask.. he offered. He said dont prop them for the freebie.. just give them a fair assessment. ( Ive been on Pirate almost twenty years.. I can do that.. we, after all, the end users here are very critical when its our hard spent dollars for stuff)

I mentioned that I wanted to try some of the curved flap discs for smoothing weld corners and he sent me some to try.. nada zip.. no charge.. Im not saying he will do that for everyone ( Ive ordered from Roark a number of times..pretty much because they will bulk rate stuff for me and I like the German flap discs which I abuse ( tell me one of you that doesnt)

So.. there will be some upcoming posts about some of their products that I am going to try... use.. and abuse.. they aren't paying me.. they are going to send a couple of one offs. If its a freebie Ill say that up front.

I will be fair.. maybe not Pirate brutal.. but fair.. I like doing biz with a company that is responsive and I asked them for more sales for all of us.. and for some more bulk packaged items.. for those of us who might be busier fabbing than others.

So.. moral of the story.. write our vendors if you want something.. you might be surprised.. they might just listen and jump on the chance to give better service and prices for all here


And that what it's all about

Rock on Pirate
