Actually it isn't a Devastator glide Mike, it actually is a PC TI SLOT glide to be precise.
Or this just goes to prove my OG statement about Lisa when I asked her to make my glides for me originally.....it was just a PC Ti glide like I suspected.
I told you Mike that the cuts were NOT for my wand. She just sent a PC Ti thank you for confirming that.

Huh?

There is no conformation anywhere in this video that a PCTI fits your wand. Go look at the Hard Surface Glide I sent you and tell that will fit on a Prochem.
Very different profiles.
I cant imagine what would make you say that.

I was wanting him to show a Sapphire internal being made, but a "NDP-14" (new dang pro) was in the oven when I arrived, and we were running short on time. I knew this was going to create a issue with you, sorry. Wasnt planned, you can ask Jim Eckman, he was there.


Your story and Lisa and Mr X's story are worlds apart on what happened. Ill trust Lisa's and John' account based on many reasons, but it really doesn't matter to me.
GreenGlides produces after market Glides, plain and simple.
The demand for GreenGlides for your wand is significant.

Nobody's come even close Fred so what does that tell you.

Guessing that Tom zoomed in and froze the screen and tried to read the hieroglyphics which he's assuming are the same as his for the PCTI. I can assure you this 50 year plus machinist doesn't work OR THINK like any other OPERATOR.

I think back to our early conversations of how you were contemplating making the glides for me with a lathe table of some sort . The memories leave me dumbfounded with the reality of how impossible that would have been, volume wise, let alone fit.

Mr X, and his son should have a plaque in the IICRC GRC, bigger than all the rest.

What does it tell me? That those folks can’t measure or use cad….especially if they have an example

And it was literally a mill I was talking about

I said it could be done other ways but not as precise or the volume

Now go to sleep

The volume at the ( neglected) time was doable.

Ironically, I could very much use Tom's help keeping up with demand, now..

Know how?

This was my first time seeing one created.

Why would you think any different?
I would think different because you toute yourself as the all knowing owner of the company. But you are just a salesman. All the time selling selling selling. You should get the mill and learn the Gcode yourself. If things go bad with the guy, you're dead in the water. History shows that things will probably go bad eventually, especially in this back-stabbing biz. Then you wouldn't have to spend money on the guy making them, you would not have to stock inventory. You could make them on demand in 30 seconds. Then you could truly afford to compete against the other guys.

There you go again..

1. I dont have have the sort of brain that it takes to machine a Green Glide. I dont built automatic transmissions or play musical instruments either

2. I DO have the sort of brain and experience and passion and commitment to tweak and perfect Greenies Glides far beyound Mr X's expectations. People who compare them all have noticed, and I've tweaked most by now. Ive also created quite a few new carpet and hard surface Glides. To call me just a salesman is disingenuous.

3. I have a great back up plan for when Mr X retires, or dies tomorrow in a car crash.

4. I don't have competition.

5. Your hatred is based on hearsay and as a friend, I would suggest you listen elswhere, too. Your ignorance doesnt look good to those who know.

6. It may take Tom 30 seconds to produce one glide, and from the looks and amounts of his cuts, you may be right, but mine take 12-15 minutes each, and I buy in bulk. On demand would be ridiculous, but I can imagine why you would think thats doable

7. Interesting isn't it.

This Salesman fixed the industry's most popular wand too.

$600 and cleans as good as a $1700 wand and will last for generations.

That alone is worthy of my epitaph.
