The info I was given : 3 1/2 tons: 2600 lbs per inch - 4 tons: 2900 lbs per inch.

I don't know for shit, even though I work in a suspension shop. I'm getting hired after october long weekend (oct 11) by another suspension shop that winds their own coils, I took the tour today. So I might be able to hook some testers up on the cheap in 3 or 4 weeks.

how nice it would be to have a job bein able to wind coils
well i'm 90% sure I'm in in 3 weeks, and they have some awesome equipment, I'm super excited. They said I could start monday to train till the position's available for minimum wage, but i told them I didn't need any more training and I wanted at least $12.50 to start, so hopefully i didn't come off as too cocky. They said I can start for $12.50 oct 11th, so I'll go in untill them and harass them ,hold them to it. :biggrin:
