      Not only do you need to understand the "trade", and it is a wide and varied one, but you must invest a great deal of capital. When a man or a crew , needs a tool, they need it NOW. If it is not on hand, they simply must go elsewhere.

      Not a business for the timid or for the "bootstraper".

      thanks for pointing this out.......
