    Pretty disappointing Blade Show

    It is a simple solution. If the real makers, not the manufacturing companies, boycotted the show and didn't buy tables....It would open the eyes of the promoters. But...let's face it. That will never happen.

    Does anyone take pictures throughout a build for the customer?
