William and Hussey Moulder Chicago4/3
I am looking to borrow a William and Hussey moulder in the Chicagoland area for a quick job. One or two weeks. Anyone have one that they may be willing to let me use?
What are you trying to run? There is an Excellent mill work shop in Skokie that is very reasonable
borrow for two weeks? You can run a mile of trim in two weeks, that's no little job!
Based on what I saw on your web link of projects you should purchase one of your own. They don't cost a fortune . Investing in ones self is never a bad investment.
Sara, you need to think of your request from the moulder owner's perspective; there are loads of risks and no reward.
Do you have your own tools and tooling? Do you know how to set-up and operate a moulder? Can you trouble shoot/correct moulder issues? What if you or one of the mills employees gets hurt? Who pays for the electricity, not only for the moulder, but also the dust collection? The company isn't going to let you on their shop floor with no one else around, who pays for that person?
As a past business owner, and speaking for myself, I would never, ever allow someone "off the street" to come in and even touch my equipment, much less try to run it.
Go out and find a company with a moulder that can effectively and efficiently run your moulding for you. You can shop around for the best deal, but remember "you get what you pay for". What you want (the way I read it) is something for nothing.
