    I can't tell you how much the biz is worth, but Im looking to get into the biz and I'm looking for good used equipment, I don't live where you are so customers would do me no good but I would be interested in the equipment when you come up with a price for all of it seperate or as a package deal let me know. I live in Missouri. here's my email thanks..........

    This is actually my second go around started on in 1988 and sold in 1996 and started this in 2000 and I am ready to try something new. I would like to get rid of obligations in the evening and spend more time w/ family

    Curious as to how much you paid yourself. Can either send a pm or email if you want it kept confidential.
