    Here's some beautiful hand drawn schematics I get to work with!

    I know they aren't quite machinist grade drawings but some of them are gorgeous and I feel like Ironman. They are enormous.

    Attachment for equipment to grind traffic bases

    Hey guys,

    I hope this is allowed, would also appreciate suggestions for a Reddit group to post this in.

    Currently our company uses a handheld grinder to bring these bases down to a level where we can stand a traffic pole on it. Depending on the quality of the trowel, an individual could spend 5 hours grinding away at a base. Does anyone know of an attachment for a skid steer or equipment that could fit overtop of a base, and make it level all the way around outside of the bolts? Pictures attached. Would also be open to fabricating one ourselves.

    Cylinder from a sock making machine

    These are parts from a knitting machine (sock making machine). A few bit of context, this job required a new cylinder with a different needle count. In a nutshell, the fewer needles the cylinder has like for example a 108 needle machine the heavier yarn the machine can run but the socks look rough and if it has any pattern which are like pictures or logos on the sock they don’t look so good. A 200 needle machine for example which is real popular at the moment makes a very smooth looking sock 🧦 and the pattern (pictures) and logos look very nice and vibrant. These are all the parts you have to remove in order for the cylinder to come out and install the new one.

    Looking for a specialty coating.

    We make extraction plates for paper mills used for recycling. We are looking for some sort of specialty coating to increase the life of the part. Any info for some companies or sales people that can provide more info would be greatly appreciated.
