Yo whats up everybody about 4 weeks ago I made a post about some new tools that I was getting well that all changed all of the tools from baltimore are now getting sent back up to new york. Because in DUMBO brooklyn which stands for down under manhattan bridge overpass we have a 2,000 sq shop. We have 2 shops in new york 1 in dumbo and 1 in crown heights brooklyn so in the dumbo shop on saturday this guy steve was making some radiator covers for a job on front street and this other guy marco was building 2 lolly colums which are for holding up I beams in a house. Well anyway steve was using the table saw with out the dust collector on and on each end of the lolly colum is a metal plate well marco was cutting the plates with a torch and the saw dust got some sparks in it and the whole shop burned down. Now these guys are dumbass because the fire didnt spread until about 1 min after it started. Worst of all we had a special sprinkler system in it so that if there was a fire they could turn it on them selves that way we could send it to where ever the fire was in the shop. Now since we lost more then $10,000 worth of equipment and a 2,000 sq shop well to make a long story short the bandsaw table saw and the jointer that I was going to get are now going to be in a different wharehouse down the street because this shop is burned down.
