    I went a little over board and bought a industrial based printer. I spent nearly $4k on everything. It's an investment for my start up business.

    Practice Report

    Went to Larry's yesterday and test drove the SST with more rows of pins removed from the front tires. While it was a little less barrel rolley it still wasn't great. I was just about ready to never...
