bigwalls.com questions
« on: March 22, 2007, 10:55:33 am »
Have a couple of questions/thoughts for this website. 

Couldn't really find an 'end users agreement' but just wondering what the policy is of hucking your wares?  Is this forbidden?  In some circles this is considered bad form but wasn't sure how it is received here.  I've got a couple of gear/service offerings, but don't want to offend and/or turn this fine site into a flea market so I'd like people's (or more importantly the admin's) feedback.

Also, how about some sort of partners forum?  I do more solo aid than team aid, but was thinking it would be a fun experience.  Since we don't have a formal forum for this, I'll just toss it out that I'm in the greater Portland, OR area..... anybody else?  Only been fiddle farting with aid for a few years but am not opposed to learning new stuff on some practice walls around town or ???   
I have a couple of climbs around these parts that I'd like to attempt later on this year and don't mind sharing.

Well I see the partners thing was attempted in the past, but now I just get an error.

Did this just not workout in the end?

John's server crashed, and that may not have been fully restored.  There wasn't much in there at the time of the crash, so just restarting with a clean DB may be possible.  Might take a while, tho - John's new baby's probably getting more time than the server still  :)

zippy, not sure how John wants to approach it, but I for one, and not keen on hucking wares that are irrelevant to climbing.

so if you are selling your own home sewn haul bags, well there ya go, good stuff.

if you're trying to pitch a pyramid scheme or even over posting your own amazon links for every word in your post, then I think that's a little uncalled for.

Somewhere in the middle the site will police itself.

btw, I got a pair of old socks I'm trying to sell.  $60.00 opening bid...



cheers,
Munge

Sorry, guess I should have been a little more specific, absolutely climbing related.  I'm not one of those pyramid schemers, so that's out and
I would never try and sell my own homemade gear since others do it better already, and with the amount of hours invested, I'd lose quite a bit.

My offering is pretty generic really:

"swaging services": if you have anything that you want to swage cables onto, let me know.  I have a nicopress and all the materials (galvanized cable, copper & aluminum sleeves) so you would just need to ship me with the item to swage.  Cable sizes available: 1/16", 1/8", 3/32".

"sewing service": nothing large scale please!  Pretty much want to keep this to sewing webbing on various items or maybe smallish repairs.  I'm not a professional sewer, but I do a decent job and have an industrial machine that can handle damn near anything!
Need to sew any keeper loops?  Your adjustable daisies' webbing worn out?  Need a sewn loop on a cam hook?  Just a few ideas.... I'm sure you have more.

Prices dependant on what you need done; lets talk!  Shipping would likely be via USPS Priority Mail using their flat rate packaging (cheapest and fastest I can find anywhere), so I'd like the item to fit into one of their flat rate boxes.
Reasonable rates.... not looking to get rich, but I have the equipment and am just trying to assist the community.

PM me if you are interested.
Thanks,
Kevin
