Happy Father’s Day!

This one goes out to all of the fathers out there... including myself!

I read where Father’s Day was created way back in 1909 which is before any commercial greeting card companies existed… I assumed the greeting card or flower industry created Father’s Day so they could increase their sales at this time of year.

Sonora Smart Dodd is the brainchild behind Father’s Day when she was grown and married. Her mother had died while giving birth to her and her dad raised her and her four siblings on his own. You have to remember that back then most widowed fathers would have given their offspring to other relatives to raise.

Spokane Washington held the first Father’s Day observance the following year. By 1924, the custom had spread throughout the country, and Calvin Coolidge made the first presidential proclamation in support of Father’s Day. President Richard Nixon made Father’s Day permanent in 1972, nearly 60 years later, when he requested that Congress pass a joint resolution making the third Sunday in June a National Day of observance in honor of fathers everywhere.

Here are some tips for a great Father’s Day.

1. Breakfast in bed
2. No ties please…
3. A handwritten gift certificate for a future event to share some time together
4. Create a scrapbook commemorating “Life With Father” over the past year
5. Put off the Maytag Neptune repair until next week
6. Your special ideas…


See http://www.neptunewaxmotor.com/ for details on repairing your Neptune front loader washer.

I just updated the http://www.neptunebearing.com/ website with a free Neptune bearing replacement video you can watch. In addition, I offer the special Neptune bearing puller / installer called the Tony Tool for rent to dramatically reduce the time it takes to replace your bearings. The bearing job takes about 1 to 1.5 hours using the Tony Tool. Check it out tomorrow since it is Father’s Day…

Maytag Neptune service technicians are feeling left out

It seems that Maytag Neptune service technicians are feeling left out because they are offering Neptune front loader owners an outrageous quote to repair the Neptune bearings.

It’s really not their fault… they are slowly finding out that Maytag misled them about replacing the expensive outer tub which has the new bearings pressed in for around $450 and that there is a better solution!

Who in their right mind would repair a Neptune when they get a quote to fix the bearings for $850 to $1100? They can go buy a new front loader for not much more than that…

For those service technicians who would rather make some money doing a bearing replacement via a reasonable time and materials quote I just put up an offer for you on my www.neptunebearing.com website.

With the $897 package, you get (20) sets of bearings (40 total) so you can revitalize (20) Neptune front loaders and make some money with time and materials. In addition, you will receive the Tony Tool kit specifically designed to save you time when replacing the bearings. There is a DVD included and instructions to help you every step of the way.

I also put up a $497 package of just (20) sets of bearings as a refill kit once you use up your first twenty sets…

I did not offer the Maytag 12002022 seal kits since these can be picked up from your appliance parts source and installed when replacing the bearings.

This is a great opportunity if you are a Neptune service technician. Your customers will have a smile on their face when you show them the latest bearing replacement technique you employ as opposed to the outrageous outer tub replacement technique!
