Well, I refer here to the inability of many a shopper to decide what to purchase and at what price to purchase and the confusion whether he is paying the right price for the right quality and so on. And I am not referring to the possibility of suffocation out of inhaling smoke, plastic bags and balloons! Also not referring to those who sit in their homes and order over phone or internet to be delivered their goods at their door/fridges/cupboards!
Many people just go for window shopping, but get bewildered at the displays and end up buying some junk at fancy prices.This may be ‘in-thing’ for the so called rich, but a nightmare for ordinary and budget shoppers. Juul pods for sale The purpose of this write-up is to help the latter people to make informed decisions and buy at economical prices.
First of all it will be worthwhile to make a list of articles/products required on a regular monthly basis, and do a small research as to their prices.The ‘research’ does not involve sophisticated tools! Just visit some shops like, super markets, departmental stored, super stores, ‘fair price shops’ and also the next door mom-pop shops! Enquire what the prices or just get a price list from them. Most shop keepers sell the products at the ‘Maximum Retail Price’ printed, even though they are at liberty to sell below the maximum price. Why? Because this depends upon the sales turnover o f each kind of shop. Bulk buying merchants buy at discount and cut down their margin and sell below the maximum price. However, this is not true of the so called super/hyper stores where they charge only the maximum price, even though they may purchase in bulk and at discount!
Next thing will be to identify and segregate branded goods. Such branded goods like toothpaste, hair cream, beauty products are sold by most shops at the maximum price. However, certain departmental and wholesale stores sell below the maximum price, at a discount. Identify such shops.For other un-branded products, it is a free for all! Each shop sells at their own price.I have found that the next door mom-pop shop sells such un-branded products at a lower price than the so called super market/stores! You can buy these products at such mom-pop shops, but of course, check the quality also. This can be done by experience.
The above methods can be safely employed in buying fruits, vegetables and other perishable articles also. Here I have found big stores sell at a cheaper price than the next door/cart vendor merchants.You can choose the seller and avoid extra costs.
Sooner or later if you run an auto shop you will need to weld something. At first, you may just find a place on the concrete safely away from flammable materials and other people. Once outside you can set up your arc welder choose one of your favorite welding helmets and start welding. But eventually, it may become necessary to set up a dedicated area as a welding shop. There are many advantages to having a dedicated welding shop. Some welding processes are simply not suited to outside work. For example, gas metal and gas tungsten require surrounding air to be still. This is because the shielding gas can be blown away. Arc welding should only be done in dry areas and away from the rain due to the electric shock hazard. Another reason is the outside temperature. Cold metals do not weld as well as metal at 70 degrees F. Welding is a dangerous activity and your surroundings should be as controlled as possible. Use a welding machine in the outdoors leaves too many variables and welding right in the middle of your auto shop is just too dangerous.
During the welding process sparks and bits of slag can scatter up to 40 feet from the area of welding. This can cause damage to people and create a fire hazard. In your welding shop you build a metal table to do your welding on and stay away from wood or other materials that can catch fire. The welding shop should be in an area that is well ventilated. Welding can generate dangerous gases that need to be removed from the room and smoke as well. Also, bright overhead light needs to be set up and aimed over your welding table. If your auto shop has an extra room with cinder block walls and a concrete floor, you are in luck. This will make an ideal place for your welding shop. You want to avoid any surface that can be damaged or set on fire by sparks and hot slag.
Once you have your room set up correctly, various power tools will be needed as well as your welding accessories. Power tools such as a reciprocating saw, angle grinder, portable band saw, and a chop saw will come in handy during your welding projects. An angle grinder is ideal for removing excess slag and cleaning up rough edges on metal. Specific tools for working on metal will be needed as well. These include metal brakes and metal benders that are available for all sizes of metal. Other suggested tools are magnetic clamp, center punch, metal file, C-clamp, corner clamp, cold chisel, ball peen hammer and a hacksaw. This not a complete list but is generally a good place to start. The list of tools you can use in welding is almost endless and you will constantly discover new tools that you will need as you become more advanced in the art of welding.
