    So you wouldn't recommend adding a few days to your trip to do some sightseeing in Breda?

      It may be my age showing through, but I really like the place. It's a truly nice example of small town mid-America. But beside Toyne, the attractions are Snappy Popcorn, lots of windmills, and, of course, Red's. And I am trying to arrange a side trip to Schleswig to see Toyne T.I.D. #1.

        At the risk of sounding ignorant, I don't know about Red's or the T.I.D. #1. If you'll contact me off-forum, I have some questions to ask you.

          If what you mean is the dealer and/or customers seem to be overly "picky" at the inspection, its cuz they should be. The dept spent good money on an apparatus and want issues corrected. The dealer spent good money getting the job and its in his/her best interest to make sure the dept feels good about their purchase. The dept and the dealer will have to live with that apparatus for a long time, the folks at the manufacturer do not. The manufacturers shop floor folks and their superiors can do more for their future business at the final inspection than at any other time by showing pride in what they do and hearing criticisms with an open mind and taking care of issues before releasing the final product.
          As a former dealer, I was very picky. I was the apparatus manufacturers customer and the department was my customer. I wanted to sell another piece of apparatus to this department later and I also wanted to use this piece to show other customers. I needed to be picky! If the sales rep or dealer doesn't appear to be responsive, I would be concerned.

            Due time!

            Well today is the day, and for those of you that must know, I am in carroll. =). Wish me luck and I will update tonight or tomorrrow. But it is going to be a long day. Thanks for all the good pointers/advice, I got a list of stuff to do and I feel like I am going to be here for days, but I got a group of three guys to help. Thanks

              You'll do fine. You've got a lot of good advice here, and the crew in the next town over from Carroll are very helpful and open. You'll probably miss something, there are so many things that aren't on the checklist that you expect are just standard, which may or may not be. We found that having trust in the builder helped as they stood behind the truck they built us, and we're still very happy.

                Good luck with your trip. It sounds like my trip itinerary is exactly 2 weeks following yours.

                I know you're busy but we are all anxious to see photos of your "new arrival."

                  Chief, my home computer is down, in the shop for repairs so I don't have access to my full e-mail address book. I'm sure you're in it somewhere. I'm trying to see how to set this thing up so I can use their system. In the meantime, E-mail me at [email protected]. - Sam

                    Done!

                    Well it was a long day and the manufacture was wonderful. No pressure and spent most of the day checking it out. I fly home tomorrow and will post some pics next couple of days, very impressive quality craftsmenship. It is nice to actually design and then find someone to build what you want. Thanks to you all again.

                      FireBill did you check out the gravy machine at the Carrolton? Damndest thing I've ever seen.

                      Hey Toyne guys who are on Facebook, go to "Friends of Toyne" and post pics or comments.

                        Funny. I keep hearing this same comment about Toyne over and over and over again. And never any complaints........Isn't that weird?

                          Gravy!

                          Saw the gravy machine, didnt try it but it was impressive. Yes it is amazing what some manufactures cant do and then others look at what you want and say ok or no problem. Plenty of manufactures that are more than happy to show you what they can build you, but we were like this is what we want you to build us, and thats what happened. Reds was a sweet time with all the popcorn you can eat!
