Yea you got it. They wanted the cheapest fix to the problem.

But by simply using Microsoft Paint's straight line tool you can clearly see the pavers are strait.

Maybe its time to invest in some glasses?

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt that your hands were shaking when you took those pictures. Or the brick molds are worn out and the tolerances are off big time.

It's appearing that Tom isn't wanting any criticism , I'm think he want to oy show pics of the work and equipment

The joint lines are infact wavy, especially Towards the outside center.

The red Line Tom drew in is too thick and is masking the variation.

Not sure if Tom does many patios, but for the future, Tom you really need to make sure whoever is setting Pavers that they keep those lines as staight as possible.

Criticism is fine, i think it makes you strive to get better. In fact i have agreed with most of the criticism but i do think i have the right to dispute it.

zedosix, I may have over reacted to your comment and I'm sorry for that, no need to make enemies on a forum. I think i was just still aggravated from having sat through Belgard University all day. lol

Yea the patio isn't perfect and there are some waves good thing is that this job is not done. It was one of our last projects before winter and there isn't even poly-sand in it yet. It shal be fixed in the spring!

We went down to HNA in Louisville Kentucky this year. It was a good show and it was quite massive because it was combined with the GIE+E Expo.

First two pictures are of the Optimas mechanical Paver. Its a cool machine and I took a quick video of it in action.

Third picture is of Probst version of the Optimas.

Last two pictures are... well just funny. Somehow I don't see a huge market for a mower you have to pedal.

I also won a few competitions and ended up walking away with $200! If you want to see the competitions here you go.

Cool I can plow with my mower now, but what's with the wheelbarrow? I have that same mower but I can't see plowing snow with it, unless it's a dusting.

Hey I'm in your last video , I remember you down there. You can run a machine really good. As for the work being presented..... we can look at it like this--- the jobs are being done structurally sound( except geofabric) =B+.
they aren't up to the highest standards = B
your companies maybe have to find a happy medium as this company has... I dont know?
They get paid, customers are happy, some customers aren't as picky as us and we sometimes beat up the little things too much.
Seriously the lines aren't that bad

The next group of pictures are of jobs we did the year before and are 100% done. This was a big job we did at a house on a local lake.
