New HBAI Net Forum – It’s Up and Running – Now Use It
Congratulations to Mike Farr and Mary Fitch, who within one minute of each other, joined the forum and posted information.  Both will win a $25 Scheels gift card for getting things started.  Here’s a testimonial post from Mike at Boyler’s Ornamental Iron:
Thanks for the invitation to join this listserve. As a subcontractor I may not post much due to the mainstream topics but I have found the information that is posted on other listserves that I subscribe to interesting and very helpful to all who subscribe, both those who post and those who lurk. Maybe even an iron guy can offer some useful information once in a while.         – Mike
Go to: and register.  Post whatever you want for now – stuff for sale, how to advice wanted or offered, help wanted – it’s wide open until it needs to have rules put in place.

New HBAI Net Forum
We just put together what should be a fantastic tool for you to use – a forum/bulletin board.  They have been around for quite awhile, but how would you like to:

Find a solution to a problem that you’re encountering?
Sell a piece of equipment that you no longer need?
Request some temporary help/labor/subcontracting?

Those  are a few easy ideas and we’d like to keep it unencumbered by lots of rules, so use some common sense.  This is Jay Iverson writing this and I can tell you that personally I use forums nearly everyday.  I …
