There are some things in this world that you just gotta accept | Rick Miller

There are some things in this world that you just gotta accept | Rick Miller

Hey guys, It's Rick at Elijah Tooling.
Give me two minutes and I'll make it worth it.
Listen, today I just wanted to give you a tip that I learned a long time ago.
An experience that was difficult for me. 
I was in the 5th grade, and you're like "What?", he's going all the way back there?
But, something happened to me that I wasn't, that I had not expected, and that was that I got a D, my first D, ever in Algebra.
And the teacher had to call my parents in and nobody could figure out what was wrong.
To that point, I had done very well in school.
And, one of the things I realized, after the fact, was that there are some things in this world that you just gotta accept.
You may not be able to figure it all out.
You may not be able to get a handle on every last detail.
With that in mind, I've got a really cool product that we sell here.
A captive fastener that we use for quick-change.
We use it in modular fixture plates and in a lot of other places.
So my tip for the day is, you know what?
There are hundreds of thousands of these things out there, if you haven't tried this because you don't quite understand it all, I would just ask you, accept.
Other people are benefitting from this.
How about you?
See you next time!

So we are all about flat plate modular fixturing. That is our one product, that is where our focus is. Those consist of four elements; our fasteners, our retractable dowel pinszip bushings (which are an all in one multipurpose hold), and then our modular vices. That's all we got! But we can make a real impact for you today because those guys do the whole thing, and at a lower cost. So I'm just going to go through it with you a little bit, a couple of seconds, give me a little bit of time.

I was supposed to be comparing these two products: this is our fastener, this is Jergens ball lock. You know what? They both­­ have great features. I'm not here to bash my competitor. In fact, I was thinking about ou
