  1. New rig in the gallery. Unfortunately EB's upload system is flawed so some information may be missing and some photos may not be cropped properly. Hint hint nudge nudge, admins.

  2. Low- and Reduced-Profile maneuvers. Hell on earth.

  3. Appears several people have joined the site, but 'Total Members' and 'Newest Member' aren't updating 

  4. Difference between lot and item on BL? Help?!

    1. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Lot as in “Super lot”? It usually means you have to purchase the entire listed “lot” rather than 1 or 2 individual parts.

    2. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      No. I'm trying to price out a rig for a friend and BL sellers' pages say they have x-amount of items in x-amount of lots, with so many matching lots. Not sure what the difference is.

  5. A Tisket a Tasket - EB's hit the trash basket

    or so it seems. This place is dead.

      You got some vitals and confirmation from a physician?

    2. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      Not sure where you're from but in my area we don't need Dr. confirmation to bag & tag

  8. Forgot to submit contest rigs. Darn. 

  9. New rigs coming!!

  10. What's the absolute most reliable way to get parts for new rigs? PAB doesn't have the necessary parts and BL is either way too expensive or inconsistent in both price and parts in stock

    1. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Bricks and pieces via Lego is better than PAB, the selection is more up to date and often has the common fire builder parts. 

      For bricklink, you need to join the site as a buyer and create a wanted list of the parts you’re trying to find. The site will compile a list of the parts and the sellers that have the most of your wants in their store, which narrows down your search drastically. I don’t believe you can narrow the stores by payment method though so you’ll probably want to open a paypal account as well. (Helpful hint, don’t allow notifications for wanted parts postings unless you like sifting and deleting email all day!)

    2. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      Yeah that's what I've done with the wanted list. I've also got PayPal. It's just hard with all the inconsistent store stocks

  11. Anyone know if Pierce could/would do a dual steer axle on a tiller?

    1. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Dual steer on the trailer axle? Not likely, it’d be to difficult to maneuver and hurt the effectiveness of the tiller. You’d get the same ability to turn like the standard tiller but likely not as sharp and the weight would be effected having a second axle, reducing valuable storage space.

    2. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      I'm less concerned with effectiveness of the tiller and more interested simply in whether someone would actually make it

    3. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Short answer- no, they would not. 

      Long answer- no, they would not because it’s ineffective.

  12. If y'all could pleaaaseee subscribe to my YouTube account that would be awesome!!!!

    thanks so much!

      It's all emergency services!!

  13. There needs to be a GoFundMe but for Lego.

    I simply have too much going on right now to spend more money on it and create new rigs.

      You said you had "to much going on right now." That doesn't specifically say you do have a job, it simply implies you're to busy and possibly out of or low on cash for Lego. So no, you didn't say at any point in that post you don't have a job.

    3. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      Exactly, so don't go assuming sh*t. I'll take my builds and my $24/hr elsewhere 

    4. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Umm, okay. Whatever floats you boat I guess. 

  14. New things coming in the future! 

    The Brick Village Emergency (my company) Quick Response Tanker (QRT), my giant*** rescue, '92 Dash engine, and major updates to my tower ladder (changed look of outriggers, made 'em functional, made elevators work, etc.). Expect these to come within the next week!

    1. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Not sure how I missed this status, but nice! Can't wait to see them!

  15. Some point in the future I plan on ordering some Kenworth/Pierce engines

    1. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Nice. Looking for an off-road type of engine to serve the rural zones.

  16. can someone please go into further detail on how you upload your parts list to BrickLink

  17. There hasn't been a new member in over a year. This is mildly concerning 

  18. Finally got some working stabilizers on Tower 2 but they're a pain in the *** to actually set up

  19. 1,500 parts for new rigs? Check!

  20. BrickOwl or BL? They appear virtually the same...

      @~JD~ does BrickOwl use invoices or can I purchase all 35 of my lots in one go?

    3. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      That I don't know, @HenryH BCFD would know since he uses Brickowl.

    4. HenryH BCFD

      HenryH BCFD

      I find Brickowl to be more user friendly in terms of finding what I need. In terms of price they are both roughly the same depending on which stores you buy from.

    I know how to work this gap in real bricks but LDD and SNOT don't mix

      Build the center compartment sideways or see if you can bring the sides up where the plates will meet evenly again. I'd also recess the round tiles and only use one on the center compartment.

    3. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      @~JD~ tried sideways but if I do that I can't attach anything where those lights above the wheel is

    4. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      If it's a two door center compartment then the handle will be more forward, with that you could attach a 1x1 brick with a stud on the side facing down where you can attach plates.

      The ladder has such a long overhang. It's like they tried to put a rear mount ladder on a mid mount body lol

    4. Sven

      @Michael, that's not that much overhang for Germans xD We deal with that on almost every German ladder truck ;)

  23. new brush truck in works!
