He showed me how it was from Italy and the edges had been designed with extra height and rounded corners to ensure no tobacco got stuck anywhere. In the early 1990’s a company called Music City Marketing sold a melamine version of the CLUB tray, but it was shorter and would get scratched during use (leading to small amounts of melamine perhaps mixing with tobacco, according to Chandler). Time went on and I noticed that whenever I’d go to a true old school smoking connoisseurs house they’d hear who I was and then go into their closet or room and come out with an original CLUB tray to roll on.
Around 10 years ago I went out for drinks with an old friend (Ted from HQ). He was sharing ideas with me and brought up “Hey Josh, you really should make a new version of the original Club rolling tray”. I commented about the various trays that I already sell but he insisted that there was simply nothing else in existence that was as perfect for rolling as the original CLUB metal rolling tray. I knew Ted was right and I knew what had to be done. I searched online and was able to find an antique store in North Carolina that was selling an original CLUB tray. I was only able to talk them down to $440 – they knew the value of that tray. I then sent the tray to the best metal accessory manufacturer in the world. I made some minor improvements and added new larger and smaller shapes. I insisted that the tray be made of very high quality and thickness metal with perfectly curved corners.
(No creases!) They tried to talk me out of it because this was clearly going to be an expensive item. If I would just lower the thickness it could reduce the cost almost in half. I held firm – this tray had to be strong and perfect. My goal was to be able to impress old school rolling connoisseurs, plus bring this awesome style of tray to a whole new generation of smokers. The RAW Trays finally arrived in our warehouse and the first thing I did was make Joe Rojo send one to Ted. Ted’s review was “Tell Josh he really did it – these trays are F-ing perfect.” I only hope that 40 years from now rolling connoisseurs are still cherishing and collecting my new trays. Metal tubing is made of metallic elements or alloys and is used for a variety of functions including fluid or gas flow, wiring, structural applications, and even medical uses. Metal tubes are also commonly used as raw materials for industry. Metal tubing comes in various widths and lengths, and it can be round, oval, square, rectangular, or triangular. The most common metal tube is aluminum tubing, which is lightweight and resistant to corrosion. Stainless steel tubing is strong and also resistant to chemicals and corrosion. Brass tubing is resistant to corrosion and also known for its electrical conductivity. Copper tubing is corrosion resistant and conductive, and ductile versions of this tubing can be bent and maneuvered for purposes such as plumbing. Bronze tubing is strong, corrosion resistant, and has excellent electrical and thermal conductivity. Titanium tubing is a high-strength, low-weight material with high resistance to corrosion. Metal tubing can have a seamless, welded, or welded and drawn (W&D) construction. Metal tubes can also be finished, coated, or plated for added strength or protection. Pipes are round, cylindrical shapes that are hollow. They are used primarily for the transference of either fluids or gas. All pipes are measured by their Nominal Inside Diameter and their Wall Thickness, which is based on a Schedule number. The higher the schedule number, the thicker the wall. The most common schedules that Metal Supermarkets stock is Schedule 40 and Schedule 80.

Adults who went undercover at a high school found 7 things people don't realize about life for teenagers today.
That's the message of "Undercover High," a documentary series on A&E that follows seven adults who pose as students for a semester at Highland Park High School in Topeka, Kansas. The undercover students, aged 21 to 26 when the show was filmed last year, took classes, joined clubs, and saw firsthand the struggles teenagers go through in their everyday lives. Even for the participants who graduated as recently as five years ago, their return to high school was completely different from their first time around. Here are seven things the undercover students learned about high-schoolers that most adults don't realize. Social media has had a profound effect on the daily lives of teenagers.
