Default My $.02 - Benjamin Willhoite

Hey everybody,
I have a few minutes before my next appointment, and I wanted to weigh in on this. A lot of times I post things before I have had time to think them through and end up feeling foolish. The rest of the time, I think them through and talk myself out of posting at all. I'll wonder later whether I should have kept my own council.

EZ tools are really fantastic. I have gotten to try Festo tools, and they are also fantastic. They have all the halmarks of good german tools, and they are priced accordingly.

A fully equipped EZ setup is also expensive, but it has an advantage that I appreciate: It uses power tools I already have. I like my porter cable circular saw and triton router. After a little work, they function flawlessly with my EZ guide and smart table. Also, I think I get more function per dollar for my EZ system than I would from Festo. I am sure that Festo would stand behind their products as far as manufacturing is concerend, but I have never seen a company that is as adamant that I be satisfied as Eurekazone. Dino regularly offers sales and promotions. Not to be trite, but he "goes the extra mile" to make sure I will be a repeat customer.

I also have some criticism of EZ, but they are not related to the actual EZ components or design. I am mostly afraid for Dino's health, and for the continuity of the company.

Sean,
Have you ever try to go against your believes and opinions?
At eurekazone we don't form opinions.
We like to spin things in order to discover new ways.
And when we do, we like to find new ways to spin things.

Take a look here and you may find that eurekazone is a non opiniated
company of many people.

Enjoy.

thats an interesting spin on the idea of a work bench. those guys are really pushing the envelope and coming up with some useful stuff.

so are all those people employees of the company or are they customers?

Smart tools 4 Smart people, Sean.

Now you may see why we're the most open minded and the same time
the most protective of a good idea.
If we don't protect our right to invent and create,
there is no room for new good ideas.

Welcome to eurekazone.
Time for a nice poem?

This poem is all about the freedom to think and the duty to protect the right of others...to think.

Enjoy.

nice poem indeed. did you write the music yourself?

there is a delicate balance between being open minded with a desire to learn new things and protecting our hard won, strong opinions. its an interesting quandary that be fronts us, do i continue to use the standard method that works fine and produces excellent results or do i search for an alternative that improves the results.?

once we have found a way to work with both of them we open up our growth potential and can almost guarantee success.

you and your crew seem to be on the right track.

i'v found that growth does not come from simply buying a new tool for the job. it comes from figuring a way to do the job without that tool. once we refine the process of mapping solutions to our issues without using the obvious fix we can than produce results that are successful and repeatable.
