You say you arent suggesting he do valve jobs for people but then you say something entirely different. You constantly contradict yourself. Do you even pay any attention to your posts or anyone else posts for that matter? Try thinking before you type for once.
Ive been doing this professionally for just under 20 years in a professional envornment and I have plenty of expierence with good machines and machines that are not even in a ball park to being accurate. Not a shadetree that works out of his garage and talks a lot of smack. Your posts have consistantly been an attempt to take shots at others, trying to make yourself look like a big shot. If you call yourself a professional, you certainly dont act like it.
As for Joe Mondello. He is located in Tennessee and your in California. Do you really expect us to believe he, a nationally well known engine builder, sends you, someone that doesnt even work in a machine shop in the first place, cylinder heads to have work done on them? Yea right. Go blow smoke up someone elses ^%%.
I don't appreciate being called out on a internet forum and being called a liar. I have never lied about anything I have ever posted on this site.
And I have never called my self a professional anything. You made that one up on your own.
I didn't suggest that he do valve jobs. You need to reread what I said and use your pea sized brain and try to understand it. I said he could grind their valves for them. That's all. Nothing more, nothing less. read it again. I'm not contadicting myself anywhere. You are concocting stuff up. You've got quite a favorably creative mind, I have to say. Favors you !
I did some work for Joe prior to 2003. At the shop where I worked, not at his shop. I have not worked in the machine shop since the earhtquake that shut it down. http://www.cnn.com/2003/US/West/12/2...ake/index.html
The building that killed the 2 women was 1 block from where I worked. I viewed it immediately after it happened. I watched them put the sheets up to cover the recovery effort.
Yes, Joe brought me work occasionally. It's not really a big deal. I was in and out of their offices all the time back then. I knew all of the guys that worked for him and the guys/gals over at the school before they moved to TN. I saw Joe all the time. He came over to the auto parts store once in a while and would pass thru the shop. It wasn't a big deal. Talked to him before he left CA. The guy I worked with was also friends with him and has been out to TN to see him a few times.
Larry Dixon and Larry Dixon Sr were in the shop from time to time too. I know lots of racers out here. There are tons of big name car guys out here. They're all over the place. A lot of top fuel drivers and their shops.
fwiw, I was in the new machine shop 2 days ago doing some glass beading. I'm in and out of there all the time.
I wasn't name dropping. I was trying to say how this guy could keep his valve grinder and make a little money with it. In these tough times, I'm sure everyone is looking for a little extra income. For beer or a steak or whatever. Sometimes people just need their valves ground on a machine that is used regularly and is known to be accurate. They can do the rest themselves. There are a lot of guys that work in the field (mobil mechanics)and work on tractors and such and maybe don't want to lug a big huge cylinder head into town just to grind the seats. I don't know why we are arguing about that. You obviously live in a small world.
I'm not taking any shots at anybody. And I'm not the big shot. I am actually a very humble person. I do have a lot of knowledge and I like to share it here because life is short.
ok my turn for a cheap shot............
I think with your 12,000+ posts in just 11 years, you are the big shot. Congrats.
You must spend every waking hour here. No social life? Work, go home and sit on the computer all night till you pass out?
Do you even own a Chevelle?
