Fully Threaded Radio episode 156 “Virtual Vegas” was published September 22, 2020.
The one sure bet in the fastener industry is the Vegas show. But with this year’s long-odds cancellation, the FTR boys needed a way to unload their huge supply of giveaway Vegemite.
They decided to set up a virtual booth anyway to see if the format could lure in any takers, and to get a reading of the screw biz during the strangest year on record.
Bryn Stock, Jake Davis, Mike Topolewski, Matt Boyd, “Iron” Bill Armstrong, Cari Bailey, Tom Buddenbohn and the always coiffed Rosa Hearn make their way to the virtual show floor to share their thoughts, and to dodge offers of droll breakfast spread on toast.
Baird analyst, Dave Manthey, breaks down the FDI with Mike McNulty on the Fastener News Report (46:38).
Carmen Vertullo expounds on the importance of documentation supplements during the Fastener Training Minute (1:11:02).
BONUS: Cameo by the lovely and talented Lynn Dempsey.
Clearly in demo mode, Brian and Eric explain the FCH Scrubber process and find some consolation in the lengthy shelf-life of their surplus promotional item.
Run time: 01:53:14
