we will never get the manometers back if we are talking about coming after the people who have them and havent gave them back yet.

If it were my 'loaner' program, I would get a credit card number that was good for the price of the manometer.

If it isn't returned in a given time, then they have just 'purchased' a manometer, and the bbs gets a new one.

how simple can that be?

all over 35 dollars? doesnt make much sense to me. i do understand it was wrong for those people not to return the manometer, but to go on a crazy witch hunt is crazy.

maybe they should just send matthaus some money so we can get this rollin again

There's 2 points here. One, I doubt anyone
would want to lay out money for a good cause
using the honor system , then have to keep
reminding folks about being honorable.
Two, I believe also no one likes feeling like
they have had thier kindness mistaken for
weakness just because they have a higher
level of optimisim or patience and politeness

sometimes some people just need to be called
out to shake the respect out of thier selfish
greedy lazy butts??????

Taught rope over the ole Oak Tree? Naw, just send them back,........ and if you damaged or destroyed the unit, 'Man-up' and just send a new one back to the appropriate party. This is a network of friends who share a similar passion, please keep it that way. :idea: :D

How often can this be repeated?

Comments like "you suck" or "string em up" do not help to promote you as an on line pal!

Anyone who stole one of these loaner unit's is no pal of mine. Sorry but that's just a really crappy thing to do when a group has out of the goodness of their hearts loaned you one of these units and you've decided to "keep" it. Low life.

I am not happy that the program has failed because of negligence or abuse -- but what did you folks all expect.

It would be nice to ( at least try to ) keep negative comments in the Flame suit section.

From Shakespeare's Hamlet, 1603:

LORD POLONIUS:
Neither a borrower nor a lender be;
For loan oft loses both itself and friend,
And borrowing dulls the edge of husbandry.

Well since you asked and you seem to have strong feelings about this, I expected the borrower to be an honorable person and be grateful to have had the opportunity to borrow a $40.00 tool that they didn't feel they need to buy....AND RETURN IT! Am I missing something here Sting? And flame suit central has nothing to do with this.
