    Adding a tip for anyone doing the shows, If you can set up on Thurdsay afternoon before the Friday show. This will give you more time for your set up and making sure the machine is set up and ready to go. I also took a card table and extra table to set up everything. Even with these I has display items that were not put out. I had a corner booth set up (no vendor on the outside) so having the extra table was nice to have just the machine and related items on one table. The other two tables (comes with the booth) were used for display purposes. If you can/have a display shelf to sit on top of the table it help with the space plus it makes the items more visiable. The traveling pallet for the show has some plate stands included but if you can take more they will give you lots more room on the table to have items standing up instead of laying flat...

    Thanks Floyd

    I have an extra table that's nice and sturdy and small that I can easily bring along, I think I'll do that. Going a day early isn't really worth an extra tank of gas though. I will also bring a dolly along to help. Last year I was carrying my computer back and forth every day and it was a lot of work. I'm also going to bring some extra clamps for holding the banner up.

    Did the machine work in the show. Last year it wasn't working and had no bits.

    I had no machine issues this time around, it ran like a dream. It did show up though with out a T handle for the chuck, no carving bit and the card reader would not be recognized as a usb device. The small vacumm would not work also. Gary had the same as his show before me. I sent a note to Connie and Joe so they could get these items replaced for the next show in St. Louis.

    Are you using a desk top computer or a lap top? If a desk top I can see that as a pain to pack around. They do have a printer with the show stuff this time which made it nice for printing out the sale sheets, customer reciepts and anything else you might need. I did have to down load the printer drivers. It is a Brother HL-2070N series if you want to get the driver before getting to the show. Not sure what you are doing for internet access but for the Denver show the facility had in house access for $9.00 a day. I find having access makes it great for doing orders on the spot plus being able to show the CW site, forum and other places that relate to the CW.

    Thanks for these great updates Floyd,
    Very helpul ideas. Any clue on who out here is doing the Tampa Show in March. I'd like to exchange this type of data so I'll know what to expect when the boxes arrive in Atlanta. Many thanks again.
