I had nothing to do with the footings on this job or the mounds of dirt. There going to be doing a 24" basement dig out.

Three beam lines 81' in total 11 columns.
We removed the old beams, installed the new beams. Then jacked everything up. It came out great.

After I received your message I tested it and it worked just fine. We sell tens of thousands of them and I maybe heard this three times in 15 years.  I'm happy to send you another one to try.  Just send your information to Sandi (sandi@fastcap.com).

Thanks

You could try to take some blue painters tape and wrap the pencil to increase its diameter. Or see if you replace the pencil if you have the same issue. Anyhow hope that helps

FastCap Product Problems / AccuScribePro slipping
« Last post by Eakes on February 06, 2017, 01:56:52 PM »
Hello all,
I just love the concept of the AccuScribePro -- except that with those beautiful little brass thumb nuts, I find that I must use vise-grips to get it tight enough to not slip -- and slipping is the death of a scribe.  Although because the bolt was metric, I had to tap a metric thread in the only wing nuts I could find, it is now a great device with wing nuts in the place of the knurled nuts.  See photo.  May I recommend a nut change so I could rate this tool as perfect?

Before you buy all that, there are also apps for your phone.  Google receipt management to learn more.

Your the second person to suggest that too me. I think I'am going to try it, will see. I have a mini home office. So I file all my receipts/records at the shop, where I have a XXL file cabinet. Currently at the end of the day when I get to the shop, I unload the truck/trucks file any receipts for the day, and then load up the truck/trucks for the following day. I am going to look into what it will cost for a cheap computer, scanner and probably a shedder, to keep at the shop. I am going to be moving into a new role at work and I know there's going to be a ton of more paperwork involved. Also I want to track job progress more thoroughly. My goal is to have a large library, of past jobs to be able to look through to help with the estimating process. I know my current process needs improvement at my current level of paperwork.
So if there's any other suggestion, I am all ears.

Have you tried scanning your receipts and giving them meaningful names?
