Getting back to my question... I've been through the mill.
Today I had one ( a brick and block mason) want to talk about setting up a concrete saw for a 32x16 opening in a block wall...
uh, huh says I... and how much will this cost?...
after recovering a bit and I ask "and what do I get for that?"
then "what about the steel (lintel)?" He says: "what steel"?
I then said thank you anyway and hung up the phone.
So... (tongue in cheek) I figure it must be me.
What should I be asking for and how do I describe it? Thanks.
