Refurbished VS Rebuild: Can it be done?
The question we get a lot is: Can we just refurbish the machine or do we need a complete rebuild?
Often the customer has gotten other quotes that are high and seem like overkill. Can you put too much time and effort into a rebuild? The answer is yes. Coming from a rebuild company that might seem like we are talking ourselves out of work. The simple answer is that customers are not uneducated about their machines. Many are very aware of the machine's age and abilities.
Often new machine costs are prohibitive, but also keeping an old machine is not always the best idea. We try to educate our customers on the pros and cons of the new vs rebuilt vs refurbishing machines. Each is a case by case evaluation. We make it our mission to work with each customer's needs and design a quote that will work for them. In our line of work there is NO one size fits all. Our recommendation: Don't go with a company that tries to fit you into that one size fits all category. It is important to weigh all of your options. We can give you the information in order for you to make an informed decision.
Our reputation for direct and honest evaluations has kept us one of the most sought after rebuilding companies around Ohio. In fact, we have rebuilt machines as far away as Washington State. With the cost of shipping affordable, we just ship them in and ship them out -production ready.
Although we are small in size, we are big on customer service, quality of our work, and for the lasting power of our rebuilds. For over 21 years we have sold, rebuilt, repaired & installed great products & machines.
Our newest example of our work comes under the classification of a refurbished machine. The difference? We did not completely rebuild these two grinders. Why? They did not need it and we are glad to share that information with the customer. We like repeat customers and we have a large list of them. It is a testament to our craftsmanship and talents.
The Cincinnati grinders had a few important things done to them. This refurbishing of the machine will give it lasting power without doing a complete rebuild. In all cases complete rebuilding is the best solution but often the type of work that the machine does, the cost and age of the machine, and the budget of the customer will make refurbishing a good solution for the machines. For these two machines refurbishing was the solution. We did some great things to make it better:
- Motor repairs.
- Spindle work with new drive belt.
- Cleaning, evaluation of each part, and Flaking the ways for oil pockets
