Good Common Sense

I think many would agree that it seems common sense isn't common anymore. Remember, common sense, determination, and patience will carry you further than almost anything else will. Don't compare yourself to others, just go about your day, every day, using common sense, determination, and patience. It's almost a game to try and practice these skills. You'll find over time that with practice these skills can continue to develop. These skills are not a "on" or "off". They are developed over time.

Keep in mind , any metallic material that a magnet will not stick to (such as copper or aluminum) will require that you induce a signal onto the line in order to trace it. This is where a Pipe & Cable Locator comes in handy. Buying both instruments in Kit form saves money, and keeps your organized with a hard case that holds both instruments. If you're a land surveyor, a building contractor, a plumbing company, or city worker wanting to locate a variety of underground utilities, the MPC Kit by Schonstedt is a clear winner.

America was Founded by Risk Takers

To me, America was founded by risk takers. It was founded by people willing to risk their life while leaving everything they had known risking their life crossing an ocean on a sail boat, and arriving at a country that was not founded yet. They were willing to risk their life, and weren't afraid of hard work. That to me, is the America that was started and needs to be kept alive. There's people in the United States of America that are willing to take the risk, start a business, build a life and work hard for it day in and day out. I do think there's people in the country that don't necessary want to take any risks, nor work hard for a better life. We really need to think about what started this country and what holds it together come November. I think you can divide the country by those that work hard, and then all the rest. All of the political games, spending waste, media frenzy, and lolly-gagging needs to stop. We all need to get down to business, figure out what needs to be done, and work hard for it, or we'll lose what we have. The old saying , you don't know what you've got until it's gone, it's very true.

Some people use a small board as a drafting table for use in the field when conveying ideas during a construction project, or to a client while in the field while rendering various design ideas. Bottom line is, portable drawing boards help people in various ways on and off the job.

Being first with a winners attitude

I realize it seems almost everyone has an opinion these days. I'd like to mention something less of an opinion but more of what our Country needs right now. We need more people willing to accept responsibility for their own actions within the work place and within our governing bodies. A guy I used to play ball with in High School had the attitude we as Americans now need to exhibit. During an inning change he would run out onto the field and run right in front of the other teams pitcher that was coming off the field. He would be out onto the field crossing paths with the pitcher before the other team had even gotten off the field. He wanted to show that he and his team was first, and willing to give the effort to get out there first and win. This attitude of being first carried my friend all the way to the minor leagues which is quite an accomplishment. As American workers in the workplace I feel we can do the same thing. We can jump out there and admit to our employers and co-workers when we've made a mistake and do it before they can point it out and promote the idea that we're responsible and giving a little more effort than what most think is the requirement.

Surveying Tripod Education



The model shown is a DUAL clamp tripod……that happens to have 1 quick clamp at the top, and a screw clamp (wing nut) at the bottom. Very secure tripod since the user clamps BOTH top clamps and bottom clamps……legs wont loosen and drop your expensive instrument. I recommend a Dual-Clamp tripod for Total Stations, GPS Instruments, and Robotics Instruments since they all have some weight to them. Auto Levels and Transits and Lasers you'd be okay with a Single Clamp tripod. Some Dual Clamp tripods use screw clamps at top AND bottom. Some use Quick Clamps at top AND bottom. Some have a quick clamp AND screw clamp. This is pretty much the combinations I have seen. The screw clamp is most tight and secure. The quick clamp is a lever with a cam type of clamp that gets tight when you flip the lever.



Single Clamp tripods have clamps only at top , or only at bottom. Some have only screw clamp, some only have quick clamp.
 
Example of Various Types of Tripods

Single Clamp tripod with screw type only (only at top, nothing at bottom)

Dual Clamp with both quick and screw type

Single Clamp with quick type clamp ONLY  (for quick setups, lighter instruments)


 Then you have "Elevator Tripods" that have a crank handle that raise/lower the head
These are special application tripods, and some users are using them for rotary laser height adjustment.

Elevator with Quick Clamp

Presco Roll Flagging Best Flagging Available

Presco Roll Flagging is the best rolling flagging available due to how long it lasts. It outlasts other brands with how long the color holds before fading, it stretches well and ties well. You won't go wrong with Presco "Texas Roll Flagging". When I was an Instrument Man on a Surveying Crew I was taught to wrap wood stakes by using both hands wrapping in opposite directions, while stretching and over-lapping the flagging all at the same time. After tying a secure knot, some length is left over on the ends to make the flagged stake visible. The method makes for a very tight and durable flagged stake. The over-lapping and stretching avoids the flagging from loosening later and sliding down the stake. If done properly the flagging will be so tight it would need to be cut off of the stake using a knife or cutter of some type.

We added the Apache Machine Control Product Line

We added the Apache Machine Control Product Line to our selection of machine control products. If you dont know anything about machine control, in a nutshell it's controlling a machine! Funny right? It's used by heavy construction firms that operate heavy equipment such as bull dozers and trackhoes for site prep. Site preparation professionals use our machine control laser detectors to grade construction sites prior to construction. Rotary Laser levels are set up to beam across a construction site, while machine control detectors are mounted to the blades of dozers, and arms of trackhoes. The grading contractor can read the blueprints (aka construction documents) to see if there is cut or fill needed at any location of the construction site. With machine control detectors the dozer operator will know if s/he is above or below grade. Hence the term "Machine Control". While we only sell the 2D machine control products, there is a more advanced subject and system and that is of 3D where the sensors detect X Y , and Z coordinates for elevation. 3D systems are expensive and not normally needed except for specialized applications. 2D systems that we represent are commonly used on many construction sites all over the world.

Distance Measuring Wheels

Distance Measuring Wheels are excellent tools for measuring long distances in a hurry. They are great for estimating paving jobs, building lot sizes, carpet estimates, grass seed and fertilizer calculations, insurance calculations, fence estimating, utility contracting, and other uses when a large distance measurement is needed quickly. To use, simply reset the counter, place the wheel at the point you want to start measuring, and roll in a straight direction to the stopping point, then read the counter.

Steel Flat Files for Drawing Storage

Steel Flat Files for Drawing Storage are great for storing archived documents, as well as working documents. The flat drawers allow  you to store your work flat instead of rolled, and allows for easy identification. Flat files generally provide a lifetime of quality document protection. If you're wanting to store x-rays, blueprints, drawings, art work, poster storage, all in a safe archived system, flat files are the way to go.

Underground Utility Locators like Pipe and Cable Locators

Underground Utility Locators like Pipe and Cable Locators are extremely useful tools to help save time, and lives. Being able to locate underground utilities accurately is obviously a safety issue. The ability for a line to be located accurately will help crews dig in the right spot and hopefully locate only the line they were looking for without digging up other lines by mistake. High voltage power lines are the first we think about when dealing with safety.

Pocket Scales are very Handy

Pacific Laser Systems PLS180 System (PLS-60522)

If you're interested in Laser Level Reviews, the Pacific Laser Systems PLS180 System (PLS-60522) is one of the best and most useful laser levels we have seen in a long time. With its 180-degree sweep it has a vertical and horizontal beam. The PLS lasers have a tough case and feel like a solid tool in your hand and not like something that will break only after a few uses. The PLS 180 will be a solid tool in your toolbox for many years. It'll pay for itself over and over as you'll find new uses for it each week. We recommend you buy the system model since it includes the laser detector. It's best to buy a detector up front since you'll need it for outdoor use sooner or later. To date we have yet to see a PLS 180 get returned.

Drawing Holders

Get organized and look more professional with a drawing holder. Another great tip or idea is to provide your client with a drawing holder when the job is complete!

The best blueprint storage box we have seen yet

The Manager 25 Blueprint Storage Box is the best blueprint storage box we've seen yet. Its very sturdy and will last a long time and can be reused over and over as projects come and go. Being 25 inches deep means it has 1 inch play for rolled drawings that are 24 inches long. A popular drawing size is the 24" x 36" and if rolled its 24" long. The Manager 25 is perfect for these size drawings and it includes a grid or index that helps you find drawings quickly. Some users will buy multiple boxes and store each project in each box then archive the box when the project is complete. If you have larger drawings than 24 x 36 check out the Manager 37 Blueprint Storage Box as its 37 inches deep.

What is a Sirvayur?

A Sirvayur is something that grubs around in the woods looking for little sticks and stones. When he finds them he does some kind of weerd dance around thern with a funny-looking 3-leg crutch wich he leans on and looks at. When he don't find them he walks around all day like he's lost. Sometimes you see them squashed by cars along rodes, espeshelly in the sumer when all th other bugs are out. A Sirvayur has one big eye and one littel eye like popeye. He is stooped over from being bent all the time. His face looks like old lether. He cusses terribul. He cant' reed because he mesures between things and then puts down a number in a littel book wich is difrint than wat his littel map says. He always mesures to a stick or stone, stops neer it, and puts in another stick or stone. He is not too brite because he is always markeing marks on side-walks and rodes to find his way home. His pants are allways tore from rock salt and his shoes look like they was made of mud. People stare at him, dogs chase him and he always looks wore out. I don't know why anyone wants to be a Sirvayur.

We're Shooting Grades and Taking Elevation

There are various types of rods used in the land surveying, construction stake-out, and site prep industry available. There are various types of rods are Grade Rods, Survey Elevation Rods, Lenker Rods, Level Rods, Cut/Fill Rods, but they all boil down to being used to figure elevation for various reasons. These reasons could be shooting grades for highway work such as grading a road bed and ditches, or installing storm sewers and drop inlets, or installing sanitary sewer lines and manholes. Other reasons could be setting a septic tank underground at the right elevation so there's enough fall from the sewer that exits a building over to the tank. Any time you need to measure from a known level reference, as when using a transit level, auto level, or laser level, a grade rod can be invaluable. A "Smart Rod" that Agatec makes is one worth looking at as well.

Cut-and-Fill Rods are used to quickly figure out if a dozer needs to cut or fill in a particular area. These are great tools for construction stake-out and grading contractors. One cut-and-fill rod we carry is the Crain One-Shot Grade Rod.

Measuring Rods also double as a grade rod. Measuring Rods are rods you can use in a vertical or horizontal fashion to measure distance. Great examples of uses are a land surveyor that shoots grades and then quickly needing a measurement of a sidewalk width, or the height of a building. Another example would be

Pocket Rods can be handy on any construction site when you're wanting to take a quick measurement for elevation from level.

So there you have it, a quick run-down of the various types of rods used by land surveyors, grading contractors, construction stake-out folks, building contractors, and anyone wanting to find work from elevation.

Manhole Cover Lid Removal Tool

Anytime you want to safely and quickly remove a manhole lid, try a Manhole Cover Removal Tool. Some folks call it a "Manhole Pick" and some call it a "Manhole Lid Removal Tool", but its all the same. Inspecting manholes, measuring inverts, discovering flow direction, it all requires that you open a manhole and take a look and getting a lid removed is not easy. Sometimes some overlapping asphalt will make a manhole lid difficult to remove, but either way a Manhole Pick will quickly and easily remove a lid.

The Leica Disto D8 Laser Distance Tool

The Leica Disto D8 is a laser distance tool that surprises most people the first time they use one due to all the features and functions it has. Yes, its an investment but one that quickly pays off if you spend any time daily taking measurements on the job. Feature that typically surprise first-time users are the 360° tilt sensor allows the Disto D8 the ability to measure angles without being able to see around obstacles, for example when measuring the height of a tree, or measuring the height of a window on the 4th level of a building. Another nice feature is the Digital Pointfinder which allows the user to zoom viewing through the Distos screen and see a target and then set the point which is very helpful for long distance measuring. When you add in other features like Bluetooth, a measuring range of 650 feet, and a manufacturers 3-year warranty, the Leica Disto D8 is a serious tool for the serious user.

Topcon Laser Levels

Topcon Laser Levels are some of the most accurate, bright, and durable laser levels made. Topcon Theodolites are also considered some of the highest quality surveying instrument available. Topcon Automatic Levels are manufactured with high-quality optics made for high-precision work.
