    BEFORE"I have some granite slabs from old measuring equipment and gauge work.  Can you help me find them a home?" Cynette w/ General Motors Corp  

    repurposedIDEA:  "I saw these granite RVHS out in front of Ralston Valley High School over the weekend.  I thought something like this would be a great 'repurpose' for the granite plates you have from General Motors." - Peter Carlson

    repurposedCUSTOMER:  One of our large Gulf Coast transload facility customers  (they offload contents of rail cars onto ships) solved their fouled ballast problem by buying 5,000' of used conveyor belting to roll out between the two rails to keep salt, fly ash, wheat, etc. out of the ballast until a vacuum truck could get by to suck it up.  How's that for a little Cowboy Engineering, or "repurposing" as we call it, to solve a problem for a fraction of the cost of buying new, purpose built material?

    Conveyor Belt.  NOTE: We just got in 4 truckloads of 54"-70" rolls of wide conveyor belting.  Click for Sizes and Prices>>

    repurposedINBOX "We are going through the process of replacing our line conveyor belts on one of our pasteurizers here at the Anheuser-Busch brewery.  I have spoken with a few of the engineers and they have indicated for the most part it is fairly clean.  When they pull them out of the pasteurizer they will stack them.  They are connected by pins that can be taken out to adjust size." - Nicholas
