Quote:See how all this is going to look right uptown? What's nice about pillow block mounts are the real basic beef parts are simple and quick to put together. Plus they have numerous places where you can add "stuff" without dealing with curved surfaces to tap into etc. Then when you coat them with a nice crinkle finish they do indeed look quite "industrial" and operate like it too! Yeah they aren't meant to be portable grab 'n goes they are for semi and permanent setups. It'll look first class Gary. Guess what Gary? Something tells me you aren't going to stop at one unit or 1" for that matter. I see more in your future. Mike
