Taking Credit for Someone's Work
By Craig Brougher

It has been brought to my attention by a rebuilding client that a
rebuilding shop here in the Greater Kansas City area places their
permanent metal foil stickers in the spoolboxes of the players I have
restored.

This has apparently been going on now for a number of years.  I
appreciate the fact that this tuner/rebuilder would like to place his
name on my work, but I will just tell this man (who reads this
newsletter) that this is dishonest and I don't know anybody who would
stoop this low, unless, no matter how hard he tries, cannot get his
players to play as well.  Otherwise, he would prefer his own work.
Instead, he prefers mine.

So for whatever it's worth, I would just advise rebuilders who do
things like this not to forget that what goes around comes back with
interest.  You don't get away with anything, and I have a foolproof way
of putting a stop to it, and to him, without getting myself in any
trouble at all.  I will write my clients and send them a decal they can
place in their spoolbox.  And if they find his decal there instead, to
consider the source, and realize the quality of person they have been
dealing with!
