    Yeh - i remember - went there with some cashed up friends and helped them spend about $13k in just over half an hour.
    Another one of those private training providers I see - hospitality and aged care - maybe they should add quarantine to the list?

    Remember them well ,the Ramage family run business also had one in Bunbury ,Ken Ramage was a terrific man to deal through always with old school manners having worked the trades he knew instantly if you were heading in the wrong direction with misinformed detail.

    Is he the one who had that saying/quirky mannerism after nearly everything he said to you? I wanted a Jet 22/44 drum sander and they wouldn't budge on price, their Bunbury store had one as well, it was cheaper for me to drive to Bunbury and buy.

    Ken was based in Bunbury ,his two brothers ran the Perth store which was originally run by the father I believe before the sons took over. I dont think Ken was the one you were referring to with the mannerism.He was always fair in his dealings.I bought my Combination off him,still have it.
