Steel Flat Files for Storing Large Documents like Blueprints, Maps, and Artwork

Mayline C-File 5 Drawer Model

If you're wanting to store large documents like Blueprints, Maps, and Artwork in a safe, protected, flat way, then steel flat files are the solution. Basically speaking, steel flat files are large metal cabinets made with thin height drawers for storing large flat documents.The basic sizes flat files come in are 24" x 36" and 36" x 48" and each size is made in either a 5 or 10 drawer model. Flat file cabinets can be stacked a maximum 3 cabinets high although most people stack 2 cabinets on a 4" base, and only 1 cabinet on top of the 20" high base. And, if you want to raise the cabinets a 4" base is sold separately, and a high base is even higher raising the height to 20" off the floor. Label holders are on the front of each drawer which allows you to label and identify what is stored in each drawer.

Helping Engineers, Architects, Land Surveyors, and Builders

Here at EngineerSupply we know we're selling products to Engineers, Architects, Land Surveyors, and Builders. The professionals we sell to may be the most informed and educated people around when it comes to selling products to them and providing the level of service they require and if you ask me, deserve. I suppose if we were selling products to the general public, things such as automobiles, we could relax and just process the orders knowing that our customers ranged from uneducated and needy all the way to the affluent wealthy with many not knowing what to expect in regards to a high level of service. Knowing that we sell to professional people (we like to call them "people" instead of "customers" whenever possible) that know the products in many cases better than we do is something we understand and enjoy doing. We know their required level of service and their expectations, and the bottom line is, we deliver and have been doing so now for 16 years online. If you want proof, listen to our customers voice by reading their ratings and testimonials (sorry to horn toot a bit but we want you know that you're in good hands when shopping with EngineerSupply).

Check our ratings out on ShopperApproved and ResellerRatings, both of which are rating services that rate webstores.

Best Brands of Magnetic Locators

Magnetic Locator
52Cx Magnetic Locator
Magnetic Locators are a Land Surveyors best friend when it comes to location anything underground such as a property corner, a valve box, or manhole cover thats buried under 2" of asphalt. A magnetic locator is simple, it will locate anything that a magnet will stick to. Why you ask? Because that metal is ferrous and a Magnetic Locator (also known as a Ferrous Locator) detects the material and alerts a sound signifying depth and mass of the underground utility, property corner, manhole lid, ductile iron pipe or cast iron meter box. When it comes to brands of Magnetic Locators, we carry them all. The brand or model really depends on a few things that you may want in a locator. That would be; depth of location, gain / sensitivity control, speaker volume control, hard or soft case, and warranty. Really, with any of the brands we carry, you can't go wrong. Just take time to browse the prices, warranty, and the basic features and you'll be on your way to saving time locating.

How the USA was formed

Pretty simple concept on how the USA was formed. It was formed by people that did not want someone taking care of them. They wanted to do it on their own without help from any one else. Simple in concept, but difficult on the level of effort it took to cross the ocean on a wooden ship, build shelter, harvest food, and survive. Thankfully we don't have to cross the ocean in a wooden ship any more, but that mindset of hard work and not wanting someone to take care of us is something that we need to work on in the United States of America.

People that use Laser Levels on the job every day

If you are one of the construction professionals that buy and use laser levels, then you know they are time-saving tools, and produce more accuracy with better end results. Whether you're laying tile in a bathroom remodel, hanging kitchen cabinets, building a swimming pool, laying stone pavers for a driveway or sidewalk, building forms for poured concrete, or building foundations and retaining walls, laser levels are your tool of choice when making sure the work is built level. Laser levels used for construction come in various styles. Rotary laser levels, line laser levels, and then plumb or "dot" laser levels are the three main styles of laser levels. Use a rotary laser level when you are mostly outdoors and need the extended range and full circle of work area they provide. Use a line laser mostly in close working conditions, usually inside but not always, and where you are focused on on side of a room or up against a wall as they do not usually cover 360 degrees of work. Then go with a plumb laser , also known as a "dot laser" which simply produces dots of reference and no lines. The dots can be used to align walls, light fixtures, and things like rigging for concert lights. Plumb lasers usually have 3 to 5 dots of reference with many models having a plumb-up and a plumb-down dot beam. Many professionals decide to own one or more styles of laser levels depending on the work they do and construction projects they take on. We at EngineerSupply represent and sell all styles of construction laser levels with many of the top brands available.

Keson Road Runner Measuring Wheel RRT6 in Feet and Inches

The Keson Road Runner Distance Measuring Wheel RRT6 in Feet and Inches is one handy measuring wheel. The Keson RRT comes in 2 different sized wheels, a six-inch diameter wheel and a twelve-inch diameter wheel. Each size wheel comes in 3 choices of units, ranging from Feet/Inches, Feet/Tenths, or Metric. Additionally, theres a nylon soft case that is sold separately. We always recommend a case for measuring wheels as cases protect the wheels counters from dust, and protect the entire product from damage. Cases, when used, allow the product last longer. Remember, smaller wheels such as the 6-inch diameter are great for smooth surfaces like floors and concrete and asphalt. Larger wheels such as the 12-inch diameter model are better for surfaces that have some holes or dips and/or raises spots or for outdoor use.

Schonstedt Combo Kit MPC-300

The Schonstedt Combo Kit MPC-300 features both a Magnetic Locator as well as a Pipe & Cable Locator. This is the best of both worlds if you're looking to locate property corners, valve boxes, iron water pipes, and have a need to locate cables such as a electric lines that are made of copper or aluminum that a magnetic locator will not locate. 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.

Portable Art and Drawing Boards

Portable art and drawing boards are very handy to have an use. They are small drawing boards that are small replicas of larger type drawing and drafting tables. Some portable drawing boards include a parallel straightedge that aids with drawing straight parallel lines as well as when using drafting triangles. Some call portable drawing boards something of a sketch board or quick board, and some use them for doodling art and as a hobby for relaxation. 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.
