You can’t beat a chain vise. I can guarantee you that I won’t get 100 years out of mine. I use it alongside a few Ridgid roller head pipe jack stands prefab weld pipe. Once the legs start to get wobbly it’s time for a new one.My Armstrong is 100yrs old. I love it but wish it had a chain vise instead of a yoke.
What’s a 40 gas installed cost in Atlanta now ?Looked into a pipe bursting rig a few times.
I have several chain vises, a 2" armstrong mounted in my shed, a 4" reed mounted in my van, a couple other used ones, a brand new 4" reed in the box and a sweet 1950's ridgid 2" or 4" mint in the original box. I don't have to use the tristand if I don't want to, but I do because it's portable and puts a smile on my face. It was 20$ from a junkyard, just needed some bolts replaced and a leg chain added.How much does those Ridgid chain vises cost that you can mount on a stand ? Could you mount one on your stand ?
We install 50's primarily. Total package, new ball valve, expansion tank etc, $2400 currently.What’s a 40 gas installed cost in Atlanta now ?
I remember being in a hotel room in Atlanta looking through the phone book back in 1987. I took my girlfriend to six flags.
The advertised price was $900.00 back then. Total job.
Back home we could barely get 1/2 that.
