A lot of people I read user experiences on said that Northern Tool has imports that are the same quality as Harbor Freight, but they do not offer nothing but imports. People who want American made tools will have access to them. American made tools are sold next to the ones that have been imported. Just expect to pay a little bit more in this case.
Forth, "Section the bike off", in your mind's eye. How many times have you seen a friend start on the mirrors and end up 5 minutes later on the exhaust tips and nothing in between done very well? I call this the "hop, skip and jump syndrome". He'll clean from spot to spot for a long time and when he's done the bike isn't. The poor guy tried to clean the whole bike at once, never had focus, never had a muscle routine and ended, after too much time, with a bike that's "ok" but not detailed like yours.
I noticed that the board that's mounted to the hand-cranked lead screw that makes the work surface boards function as a built-in vise, was loose, and flopped around as the handles were cranked. To remedy this, I used a wrench to tighten the crank shaft attachment on the moveable work surface so that there was less play as the unit is cranked. Don't over tighten, or the board won't move at all!
I started looking around at artists taborets and rolling work tables and found them too expensive to be practical. It seems if something is labelled as art studio furniture or art materials it automatically comes with a pretty hefty markup and price tag. Even basic rolling shelves and carts from the big discount art stores online were in the neighborhood of $200 with several above $400. I considered buying lumber and building some shelves from scratch, but then it occurred to me to look around at the office supply stores and in the home furnishings departments of stores like Walmart and Target. I considered everything from rolling computer desks to kitchen carts and tool boxes. I checked Lowe's and Home Depot and even Harbor Freight and found there are numerous items marketed for home use or DIY workshops ready made that would function well in an art studio.
So far, we have mentioned several different types of preparations for shipping, but learning to think with a mindset in terms of item protection and logistics will improve your overall experience in shipping. Learn to realize when ramps on a flatbed are required to load, say, golf carts (or other wheeled items or vehicles) on to the truck. Another scenario might demand a step deck truck if the freight is 9 feet in height or even a little taller. Putting the freight in cardboard boxes and strapping pallet is often a great and simple way to ship. There are even foam packing materials you can stuff inside the packaging for extra protection. Definitely recommended! We also suggest strapping or tying down the freight as well. For furniture shippers, another great solution is to get some foam furniture pads to strap to your pieces on the pallet for protection. Sometimes, people place blankets over the surface of the items for protection purposes. Again, in any LTL shipment, the freight shall be secured on to the skid or made forklift-ready with another handling unit prior to time of pickup. In FTL shipments, the shipper needs to be prepared to load and unload with a logistics strategy for such.
While I have seen some hand painted models it is a skill I have never been able to develop. Most really bang up jobs are done with airbrush. For that I would recommend a Paasche model "H". It is good, durable airbrush that is packaged with three different tips. It is cheaper than an Iwata, though some Hobby Lobby stores carry both and you can usually score one during Hobby Lobby's 40% of sales.
