PLEASE SEE SECTION 2.23. FOR SOME USEFUL OCEAN SHIPPING INFORMATION.

WE HAVE CHECKED, PERSONALLY USE AND RECOMMEND THE PRODUCTS IN THESE LINKS. 

LIMITED WARRANTIES AND GUARANTIES:  ALL ITEMS ARE SOLD AS IS WHERE IS.   IT IS NOT PRACTICAL TO SHIP MOST ITEMS ESPECIALLY MACHINERY ITEMS GREAT DISTANCES EVEN BETWEEN STATES AND ESPECIALLY  BETWEEN COUNTRIES BUT THESE STATEMENTS SHOW THAT THE ITEMS ARE BETTER QUALITY AND WILL PROBABLY BE REASONABLY TROUBLE FREE WHEN PROPERLY MAINTAINED.  

EVEN IF WE BUY A CAR IN THE U.S. IT HAS TO BE DELIVERED BACK TO THE DEALER OR AN AUTHORIZED SERVICE PROVIDER WHERE A DETERMINATION CAN BE MADE THAT A  PROBLEM IS DUE TO A DEFECT IN MATERIALS OR WORKMANSHIP AND IS NOT DUE TO LACK OF PROPER OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE.   ITEMS USED FOR COMMERCIAL BUSINESS ARE SELDOM WARRANTED TO THE SAME STANDARD AND ARE, IN FACT,  USUALLY EXCLUDED FROM WARRANTY.   VERY FEW ITEMS HAVE A NATIONAL AUTHORIZED SERVICE NETWORK THAT IS PRACTICAL WHEN WE CONSIDER OUR "DOWN TIME" AND EVEN FEWER HAVE INTERNATIONAL NETWORKS.   OUR BEST GUARANTEE IS TO PROPERLY OPERATE AND MAINTAIN WHAT WE BUY AND IT WILL BE CHEAPER OVER TIME AND IN MOST CASES MUCH OF OUR PROFIT MARGIN.  

MOTIVATED RESPONSIBLE PERSONS ARE REQUIRED TO MAINTAIN EVERYTHING EVEN PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS.  THIS IS EVEN MORE IMPORTANT IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES BECAUSE SPARE PARTS AND EXPERIENCED SERVICE ARE NOT AS AVAILABLE.  MOST AMERICAN BUSINESSES BUY USED EQUIPMENT WHENEVER THEY CAN AND MAINTAIN IT THEMSELVES ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY ARE GROWING.  THE NEW EQUIPMENT IS OFTEN TOO EXPENSIVE AND STILL HAS TO BE OPERATED AND MAINTAINED PROPERLY FROM THE FIRST DAY OR THE DOWN TIME PUTS US OUT OF PROFITABLE BUSINESS.  IF WE DO NOT HAVE TIME TO "DO IT RIGHT" WHEN WILL WE FIND TIME "TO DO IT OVER". 

USEFUL INFORMATION: 

THE INTERNATIONAL PHONETIC ALPHABET CAN SAVE MUCH TIME AND MINIMIZE CONFUSION.   ALL INTERNATIONAL AIRLINES AND MARINERS USE THIS.  IT IS IN OUR "ENLIGHTENED SELF-INTEREST" TO HAVE A WORLD WIDE SYSTEM OF EDUCATION OF THE NEXT GENERATIONS.  WE DO NOT HAVE TO KEEP RE-INVENTING THE WHEEL ON THIS AND MANY OTHER THINGS THAT WILL HELP US ALL WORK TOGETHER MORE EFFICIENTLY AND EFFECTIVELY.

BUOYANCY EQUALS 5.25 LBS (2.39 KG) PER SQUARE FOOT PER INCH OF DEPTH;  USING 63 LBS (28.58 KG) PER CUBIC FOOT OF FRESH WATER (ACTUAL IS 62.4 FRESH WATER, 64.3 SALT WATER AT 68 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT [19.9 CELSIUS] )

DISPLACEMENT HULL SPEED FORMULA:   1.25 TIMES THE SQUARE ROOT OF THE WATER LINE LENGTH = HULL SPEED;  EXAMPLES:  30 FOOT LENGTH SQUARE ROOT = 5.477 X 1.25 = 6.846 MILES PER HOUR; 20 FOOT LENGTH SQUARE ROOT = 4.477 X 1.25 = 5.59 MILES PER HOUR; IT TAKES MUCH MORE EXTRA POWER TO PUSH OR PULL FASTER THAN HULL SPEED THAN THE POWER REQUIRED TO GO HULL SPEED OR LESS. 

FOR BARGE HULLS ARROW DYNAMICS OF A RAKED BOW HAS ALMOST NO POSITIVE AFFECT ON SPEED BELOW HULL SPEED SO IF A BARGE IS NOT GOING TO BE PUSHED FASTER THAN ABOUT 5 TO 6 MPH A RAKE IS NOT USEFUL, ADDS TO COST AND REDUCES BUOYANCY.

40 FOOT CONTAINER;  39.4 FEET (39 FEET 5 INCHES) LONG BY 7.58 FEET (7 FEET 7 INCHES) WIDE BY 7.33 FEET (7 FEET 4 INCHES HIGH) (HIGH CUBE CONTAINERS ARE 1 FOOT HIGHER WITH MAXIMUM HEIGHT AT DOOR OF 8.73 FEET (8 FEET 5.75 INCHES); NORMAL HEIGHT OF SMALL BARGES IS 3 TO 3.5 FEET HIGH WHICH IS GOOD WORKING HEIGHT AND CAPACITY AND AT LEAST 2 STACKABLE PER CONTAINER;  IT IS ALSO A GOOD IDEA TO SHIP OTHER MATERIAL AND RIGGING INSIDE THE BARGES BECAUSE THE WEIGHT OF 2 BARGES IS ONLY ABOUT 40% OF THE WEIGHT CAPACITY; WEIGHT CAPACITY OF THE CONTAINER, 58,400 LBS (26,490 KG);

20 FOOT CONTAINER; 19.25 INCHES (19 FEET 3 INCHES) LONG BY 7.58 FEET (7 FEET 7 INCHES) WIDE BY 7.58 FEET (7 FEET 7 INCHES) HIGH; WEIGHT CAPACITY OF THE CONTAINER, 38,000 LBS (17,237 KG) (IF CARGO IS FLAT AND DENSE LIKE STEEL PLATE MAXIMUM WEIGHT CAPACITY CAN BE THE SAME AS A 40 FOOT CONTAINER; (WEIGHT CAPACITY IS LIMITED BY THE STANDARDS OF THE CONTAINER HANDLING EQUIPMENT AGREED UPON AND USED WORLD WIDE.  THE CONTAINERS ARE STRONG ENOUGH TO CARRY MORE WEIGHT IF THE WEIGHT IS SPREAD OVER THE WIDE ENOUGH AREA IN THE CONTAINER;  

USEFUL TRUCKING INFORMATION:  WIDTH LIMITS: UNDER 8.5 FEET WIDE NO PERMIT REQUIRED; 8.5 TO 10 FEET WIDE, OVER SIZE LOAD SIGNS, PERMIT REQUIRED AND MORE ROUTES ALLOWED; 10 FEET TO 11.92 FEET (11 FEET 11 INCHES) AND WIDER, PERMIT REQUIRED AND OVER SIZE LOAD SIGNS, RESTRICTED ROUTES AND ONLY DAYLIGHT TRAVEL; ESCORT AND PERMIT REQUIRED FOR 12 FEET WIDE AND WIDER; 14 FEET WIDE IS MAXIMUM IN MOST STATES; A FEW STATES ALLOW 16 FEET WIDE MAXIMUM; WIDER LOADS CAN BE HAULED WITH SPECIAL PERMITS; 

WEIGHT LIMITS:  80,000 LBS IS MAXIMUM LIMIT WITHOUT PERMIT ON U.S. HIGHWAYS;  THE TRACTOR AND TRAILER OF A LOWBOY RIG WEIGHTS ABOUT 40,000 LBS SO THERE IS ONLY 40,000. FOR THE LOAD BEFORE OVER WEIGHT PERMIT IS REQUIRED; ALL DETACHABLE ITEMS MUST BE REMOVED AND HAULED ON OTHER TRUCKS UNLESS THE ONLY ITEM REMOVED IS UNDER 500 LBS THEN IT CAN BE CARRIED AS PART OF THE OVER WEIGHT LOAD; 

MAXIMUM HEIGHT WITHOUT SPECIAL PERMIT:  13.5 FEET HIGH; SEMI TRAILERS WITH THE NEWEST 24.5 INCH WHEELS AND TIRES ARE 60 INCHES HIGH AT DECK ON STEEL TRAILERS AND 62 INCHES HIGH TO DECK ON  ALUMINUM TRAILERS (THERE IS PRE-STRESS  BUILT INTO THE ALUMINUM AND SOME STEEL TRAILERS BED TO KEEP BED FROM SAGGING WHEN FULLY LOADED;) MAXIMUM HEIGHT OF LOAD AND DUNNAGE WOOD WOULD BE 8.5 FEET; SAVE HEIGHT BY USING NO WOOD ON BOTTOM OR THIN PLYWOOD AND EVEN AS LITTLE AS PLYWOOD, 1 BY OR 2 BY DUNNAGE RATHER THAN 4 BY 4 'S; TRAILERS WITH SMALLER WHEEL SIZE WILL HAVE A LOWER DECK HEIGHT AND ALLOW MORE CARGO HEIGHT:  22.5 WHEEL SIZE IS ABOUT 58 INCHES HIGH; 20 INCH WHEEL SIZE IS ABOUT 55.5 INCHES HIGH;

1    SEMI SUBMERSIBLE SHIPPING VESSEL.  THIS IS HOW JACK UP BOATS (WITH HIGH CENTER OF GRAVITY WHEN THE LEGS ARE UP) LARGE BARGES, DREDGES AND INLAND RIVER VESSELS ARE TRANSPORTED ACROSS OCEANS ESPECIALLY IF THEY CANNOT BE MADE SEAWORTHY FOR OCEAN TRANSIT BY TOWING ON THERE OWN HULLS (THERE ARE GREATER STRESSES, WAVES THAT CAN BREAK AGAINST LOW FLAT WINDOWS AND DOORS AND ROLLING RISKS THAT ARE NOT ENCOUNTERED IN CALM WATERS).  THE MINIMUM COST IS ABOUT $1,000,000. .(1999 PRICING) MANY ITEMS ARE PRE-MULTI-STACKED TO REDUCE LOADING TIME AND REDUCE THE PER UNIT SHIPPING COST.  IN THIS EXAMPLE THERE WERE 18 ITEMS, FOR AVERAGE OR $55,555. EACH. UPDATE 2006 01 04 CURRENT PRICING $2 TO $3,500,000. ; UPDATED 200710 30 CURRENT PRICING $3 TO $4,500,000.;  UPDATED 200810 07 $4.5 TO $6,500,000.;

THE VESSEL IS BEST POSITIONED IN A CALM AREA LIKE A RIVER AND ANCHORED FACING UP RIVER.  THE VESSEL IS BALLASTED DOWN SO THAT THE CARGO DECK IS SUBMERGED PHOTO A(30K); LOW ENOUGH TO ALLOW BARGES AND VESSELS TO BE POSITIONED ON THE DECK.  THE FRONT SECTION WITH PILOTHOUSE AND STERN PILLAR TANKS REMAIN UP.   CARGO IS POSITIONED USING PUSH BOATS.  PHOTO C(30K); PHOTO D(30K); THE CARGO IS LIGHTLY SECURED WITH THE RIVER CURRENT PUSHING THE LOAD AGAINST THE STERN PILLAR TANKS.  THE VESSEL IS UNBALLASTED AND RAISES UP TO PICK THE CARGO OUT OF THE WATER AND SEVERAL FEET OF FREEBOARD.  THE CARGO IS WELL SECURED FOR OCEAN SHIPMENT.  PHOTO E(30K); OCEAN GOING SEMI SUBMERSIBLE BARGE WITH 18 HOPPER BARGES AND 2 BOATS PHOTO F(100K);   OCEAN GOING SEMI SUBMERSIBLE BARGE WITH 18 HOPPER BARGES AND 2 BOATS PHOTO G(100K);   OCEAN GOING SEMI SUBMERSIBLE BARGE WITH 18 HOPPER BARGES AND 2 BOATS PHOTO H(100K); THERE WERE 3 INCH DRAIN HOLES BURNED THROUGH THE HOPPER AND BOTTOM HULLS IN EACH BARGE TO DRAIN WATER DURING THE SHIPPING PASSAGE AT SEA. 

AT THE DESTINATION THE PROCEDURE IS REVERSED TO UNLOAD. 

THIS SHIPMENT WENT TO WEST AFRICA.  THERE WERE 18 ITEMS PLACED ON THE SEMI SUBMERSIBLE VESSEL IN THE PHOTOS.   2 TRIPLE STACKED BARGES (6), 3 DOUBLE STACKED BARGES (6), 2 SINGLE BARGES (2), A SUBMERSIBLE DRY DOCK WITH A DREDGE INSIDE (2) AND TWO PUSH BOATS SIDE BY SIDE (2) (=18).

2     VESSELS THAT CAN BE MADE SEAWORTHY FOR OPEN OCEAN TRAVEL CAN BE SINGLE OR MULTIPLE TOWED (UP TO ABOUT 3 ITEMS MAXIMUM UNDER IDEAL CONDITIONS).  

3     SINGLE ENGINE SHRIMP BOATS OF ABOUT 80 FOOT WATER LINE LENGTH CAN CROSS THE ATLANTIC IF A MINIMUM OF 2 PREFERABLY 3 VESSELS CROSS TOGETHER AND CARRY EMERGENCY TOWING LINES OR HAVE THEIR TRAWL CABLES PRE-RIGGED FOR TOWING IF AN ENGINE FAILS ON ONE OF THE BOATS. 

PANAMA CANAL INFORMATION:  PANAMAX SIZE:  950 FEET LONG BY 106 FEET WIDE BY 39.5 FEET DRAFT TFW (TROPICAL FRESH WATER) BY 195 FEET HIGH CLEARANCE (AIR DRAFT); 77,000 TONS; SOME SLIGHT VARIATION ALLOWED UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS; RESERVATIONS REQUIRED IN ADVANCE;  THE AVERAGE TIME REQUIRED FOR A VESSEL TO TRANSIT THE PANAMA CANAL IS 8 TO 10 HOURS.  VESSELS MUST SOMETIMES WAIT THEIR TURN.  TO AVOID LONG WAITING PERIODS DURING LOCK OVERHAULS OR EXTREMELY  HEAVY TRAFFIC, A RESERVATION SYSTEM HAS BEEN PUT IN EFFECT SO THAT A VESSEL WITH A HIGH DAILY EXPENSE CAN RESERVE A SLOT, AT ADDITIONAL COST, AND USUALLY BE ASSURED OF TRANSIT ON THE DAY IT ARRIVES.  UPDATE 2006 11 WORK IS BEGINNING ON BUILDING LONGER AND WIDER LOCKS SO TODAY'S LARGER VESSELS WILL BE ABLE TO GO THROUGH THE CANAL.  

20070903 THE PANAMA CANAL HAD A GROUND BREAKING CEREMONY AS WORK BEGINS ON AN EXPANSION THAT IS DUE FOR COMPLETION IN 2014. THE EXPANSION WILL INCLUDE TWO NEW SETS OF LOCKS, ONE AT EACH END, MEASURING 400 FEET LONGER, 70 FEET WIDER AND DRAFT INCREASED TO 50 FEET. THE PANAMA CANAL IS INVOLVED IN 4 PERCENT OF WORLD WIDE TRADE AND 11 PERCENT OF THE U.S. TRADE.

NEW PANAMAX SIZE IN 2014 WILL BE:  1350 FEET LONG BY 176 FEET WIDE BY 50 FEET DRAFT;  

LASH BARGES:  "LIGHTER ABOARD SHIP", INNOVATED IN THE MID 1960'S BY DUTCH SHIPPING COMPANIES; 61 FEET LONG BY 31 FEET WIDE BY 12 FEET DEEP; 400 TON CARGO CAPACITY; HAVE LIFT OFF OR HINGED REMOVABLE FLAT COVERS; ARE LOADED AT SMALLER DOCKS AND  MOVED ON RIVERS TO ONE LOCATION WHERE INTERNATIONAL SHIP DOCKS AND LOADS INTO HOLDS AND ON THE DECK WITH THE SHIPS GEAR; CAN BE MULTI STACKED SIMILAR TO CONTAINERS DEPENDING ON THE WEIGHT OF THE CARGO IN EACH BARGE; MOST ARE MADE OF STEEL BUT SOME ARE MADE OF FIBERGLASS; 

COMPLETE DETAILS ARE REQUIRED FOR PARTS SEARCH AND THE REASONS ARE:

1    WE NEED THE TYPE OF MACHINE, BRAND NAME, MODEL NUMBER, SERIES NUMBERS, SPEC NUMBERS (ALSO KNOWN AS PRODUCTION NUMBER IN SOME BRANDS), SERIAL NUMBERS AND DESCRIPTION TO GET THE AVAILABILITY AND PRICES OF ANY PART OF ANY ITEM NEW AND USED.   THE MODEL NUMBER, SERIAL NUMBER, SPEC. OR PRODUCTION NUMBER FOR BOTH THE ITEM  AND ALL THE NUMBERS OF THE ITEM, MACHINE OR APPLIANCE  IT IS USED IN.   THE REASON THIS IS NECESSARY IS BECAUSE OEM'S (ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT MANUFACTURES) ARE REMOVING THE MANUFACTURE'S DATA PLATE AND ARE PUTTING THERE OWN STOCKING NUMBERS ON PARTS SO THAT OWNERS WANTING REPAIR PARTS HAVE TO COME BACK TO THE MANUFACTURES SYSTEM TO GET THEM.   NUMBERS ARE CHANGED BY MANY COMPANIES AND MANY COMPANIES ARE BOUGHT OUT BY OTHER COMPANIES AND THE NUMBERS ON ITEMS NOT DELETED ARE MERGED INTO THE BIGGER SYSTEM.  THIS HELPS SUPPORT THE DEALER SYSTEM AND THE PARTS STOCKING SYSTEM. PHOTOS NEEDED GRAPHIC A(115K); 

THE PEOPLE IN THE WAREHOUSES CANNOT FIND THINGS WITHOUT HAVING ALL THE NUMBERS AND GENERALLY THE WAREHOUSE PEOPLE OF TODAY HAVE VERY LITTLE MECHANICAL APTITUDE AND/OR ACTUAL EXPERIENCE SO THEY HAVE LITTLE IDEA WHAT MOST PARTS DO.  SEVERAL FACTORS THAT HAVE BEEN DEVELOPING IN THE PAST DECADE ARE SHOWING THE FUTURE.  THERE IS INCREASINGLY RAPID INNOVATION AND IMPROVEMENT AND WORLD WIDE COMPETITION.  SOME PEOPLE CALL THIS PLANNED OBSOLESCENCE BUT THIS IS DIFFERENT.   EVEN THE FAMOUS VW BEATLE HAD DIFFERENT IMPROVED OR RESHAPED PARTS IN PROGRESSIVELY NEWER MODELS.   THERE ARE DIFFERENCES IN THE SAME MODELS IN THE SAME YEAR.   THIS IS WHY THE SERIAL NUMBER IS OFTEN NECESSARY TO GET A REPLACEMENT PART.   IT SAVES US ALL TIME AND MONEY IF WE GET ALL THE NUMBERS AND PHOTOS RIGHT FROM THE START. SEND PHOTOS FOR REASONABLE LOCATION AND ESTIMATES. 

2    IT IS GETTING HARDER TO GET PARTS FOR OLD MACHINERY AND ITEMS OF ALL TYPES OLDER THAN 1980 EVEN FOR ONE OF THE BEST KNOWN BRANDS WORLD WIDE, THE CATERPILLAR BRAND.  WE HAVE SEEN THIS TREND MOVING TO ONLY 10 YEARS AND LESS PARTS AVAILABILITY OVER THE NEXT DECADE.  THE FUTURE WILL BE "THROW AWAY" OR "RECYCLE" OR JUST IN TIME PARTS EVEN IN THE FIRST 10 YEARS AFTER MANUFACTURE.   WE ARE SEEING AUTOMATED MASS PRODUCTION CHEAPER THAN REPAIR LABOR AND SPARE PARTS  WAREHOUSING COSTS FOR BIGGER MACHINERY NOT JUST ELECTRONICS AND SMALLER HARD GOODS.   SEND PHOTOS FOR REASONABLE LOCATION AND ESTIMATES. 

WE HAVE EVEN TRIED A FEW YARDS THAT HAD MANY OLD MACHINES AND THEY WANTED SO MUCH TO TAKE THE PARTS OFF THAT IT WAS NOT WORTH IT ESPECIALLY SINCE THE SAME PARTS ARE USUALLY BAD AND MOST MACHINES OF THE SAME MODELS AND YEARS.

3    MANY PARTS ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE.   THERE ARE JUST TOO MANY DIFFERENT MODELS AND NO ECONOMICALLY EFFICIENT WAY TO STORE PARTS FOR ALL OF THEM SO THE MANUFACTURE'S WAREHOUSING DEPARTMENTS ARE BEING PROMPTED BY THE COMPUTER PROGRAMS, BASED ON "EFFICIENCY" AND "RETURN ON INVESTMENT" STUDIES, TO CLEAR THE SHELVES OF PARTS THAT HAVE NOT MOVED IN SUFFICIENT QUANTITY OVER A VARYING PERIOD OF YEARS.  TO DO THIS THEY GENERALLY HAVE "SCRAPERS" COME IN AND CLEAN UP.   THERE WAS A GENERALLY FOLLOWED "LAW" THAT A MANUFACTURER HAD TO HAVE PARTS AND REPAIRS OR EXCHANGE FOR AT LEAST 10 YEARS.  THIS IS NOT THE CASE WITH MOST MANUFACTURES AROUND THE WORLD NOW.  IN THE U.S. THE STANDARD IS FOR 7 YEARS SUPPORT NOW.  MANY ITEMS MADE IN CHINA ARE ONE RUN ONLY AND WILL NEVER BE MADE THE SAME. 

THE "SCRAPERS" CANNOT AFFORD TO WAREHOUSE EVEN $3,000. CRANK SHAFTS AND OTHER EXPENSIVE MACHINED PARTS THAT MIGHT NOT MOVE FOR MANY YEARS IF EVER SO THE SCRAPERS SELL THEM FOR SCRAP METAL.  THE METAL RECYCLERS ARE IN THE SAME SITUATION.  EVEN THE BEST MATERIALS CANNOT SURVIVE IN SALABLE CONDITION WITHOUT PROPER CLIMATE CONTROLLED STORAGE AND A SYSTEM TO FIND THEM AGAIN.  SEND PHOTOS FOR REASONABLE LOCATION AND ESTIMATES. 

4    THE GLOBAL MARKET IS MOVING RAPIDLY TO A "MAKE AS NEEDED PARTS SYSTEM" USING COMPUTER CONTROLLED EQUIPMENT THE SAME AS ABOUT 50% OF THE ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT IS MANUFACTURED  NOW.  THIS WILL SAVE AN ESTIMATED 50% MINIMUM ON PARTS COST, MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE PARTS FOR MORE DIFFERENT MACHINES AND ACTUALLY REDUCE THE TIME TO FIND, AND SHIP PARTS WORLD WIDE.  

MICROSOFT, WHOM MOST PEOPLE BELIEVE ARE ON THE LEADING EDGE OF CHANGE, PERIODICALLY STOP PROVIDING TECHNICAL SUPPORT FOR THEIR OLDER PRODUCTS.  THE POLICY IS TO PROVIDE A MINIMUM OF 5 YEARS OF SUPPORT FOR BUSINESS OPERATING SYSTEMS.  CUSTOMERS CAN BUY "EXTENDED SUPPORT" FOR ANOTHER 2 YEARS.  MOST OTHER COMPANIES PRODUCING HARD GOODS HAVE OR WILL DO THE SAME IN THE NEAR FUTURE.   THIS IS NOT THE 1950'S.  THIS IS NOT EVEN THE 1970'S.  WE ARE IN THE 21 ST CENTURY.   SEND PHOTOS FOR REASONABLE LOCATION AND ESTIMATES.   

5     HERE IS SOMETHING WE HAVE LEARNED THAT WILL SAVE ALL OF US TIME.   IN THIS DAY AND AGE PHOTO INFORMATION IS ABOUT 10 TIMES AS POWERFUL AS TEXT AND ABOUT 5 TIMES AS POWERFUL AS VOICE COMMUNICATION.  PHOTOS ARE INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE.  SEND PHOTOS IF AT ALL POSSIBLE.  IF YOU CANNOT FIND THE NUMBERS SEND PHOTOS AND A TEXT DESCRIPTION WITH DIMENSIONS THE BEST THAT YOU CAN.  WE HAVE HAD THE EXPERIENCE ON SOME MACHINES THAT DATA PLATES, IDENTITY TAGS AND NUMBERS ARE LOST OR CANNOT BE READ.  WHEN YOU SEND PHOTOS WE CAN EMAIL THEM TO OUR NETWORK AND MANY MORE PEOPLE TAKE AN INTEREST AND FIND IT MUCH EASIER TO UNDERSTAND AND FORWARD TO OTHERS IN ATTEMPTS TO FIND PARTS AND INFORMATION FOR YOU AT THE BEST POSSIBLE PRICE.  SEND PHOTOS FOR REASONABLE LOCATION AND ESTIMATES. 

GUIDANCE ON TAKING MORE USEFUL PHOTOS:  TRY TO GET A MINIMUM OF 2 PHOTOS.  FIRST FROM THE FRONT AND LEFT AND THE SECOND FROM THE REAR AND RIGHT SIDE.  THIS GIVES 360 DEGREE COVERAGE.  SOME ITEMS IT MIGHT BE NOT POSSIBLE TO GET ALL AROUND.  PHOTOS OF THE INTERIOR OF COMPARTMENTS, CABS, MOTORS, MOVING PARTS, WEARING PARTS, IDENTIFICATION PLATES, LOAD CHARTS ARE INTERNATIONAL LANGUAGE.  PHOTOS GIVE VERY MUCH INFORMATION AND ARE UNDERSTOOD AND TRUSTED MORE THAN TEXT ALONE.  EVEN PEOPLE SPEAKING THE SAME LANGUAGE GREATLY SPEED UP TRUST AND UNDERSTANDING WITH PHOTOS.

6     IN CASE YOU ARE WONDERING THIS IS NOT WORTH DOING FOR ONE OR TWO ORDERS. WE DO THIS TO TRY TO DEVELOP A LONG TERM GOOD WORKING RELATIONSHIP AND TRUST.   WE HOPE TO BE ABLE DO OTHER BUSINESS TOGETHER IN THE FUTURE. 

7    ALSO SEND SHIPPING INFORMATION INCLUDING ADDRESS WITH ZIP CODES, CONTACT INFORMATION AND PREFERRED METHOD AND CARRIER.        

8    MANY MACHINE SHOPS CAN REPAIR OR REMAKE MANY PARTS IF THAT IS ALL THAT IS KEEPING AN OLD  MACHINE FROM WORKING. WE HAVE EVEN HAD LOCAL REPRESENTATIVES OF MACHINE TOOL MANUFACTURERS TELL US THAT ON OLD LATHES IT WILL BE CHEAPER AND FASTER FOR THE CUSTOMER TO HAVE THE PART MADE LOCALLY.  IT WOULD ALSO TAKE 6 TO 9 MONTHS TO HAVE THE PART MADE BECAUSE OF LEAD TIME AND SHIPPING.  ANOTHER SLOW DOWN IS THAT MANUFACTURES WILL MOST OFTEN NOT SHIP DIRECT SO PARTS HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE NEAREST DISTRIBUTOR THEN THEY CAN BE EXPORT SHIPPED.  SEND PHOTOS FOR REASONABLE LOCATION AND ESTIMATES. 

9    YOU ARE CORRECT.  PHOTOS ARE NECESSARY.  SEND PHOTOS.  WITHOUT PHOTOS WE BOTH WASTE TIME.  YOU DO NOT BELIEVE HOW HARD AND TIME WASTING IT IS TO GET EVEN NEW PARTS WITHOUT PHOTOS.  PHOTOS NEEDED GRAPHIC A(115K); 

10    IF YOU FIND ANY SOURCES WOULD YOU PLEASE LET US KNOW AND WE WILL MARKET COPIES OF MANUALS THAT ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE AND SURPLUS AND SALVAGE PARTS WITH YOU.
