repurposeSIGHTING "Riddle's Elephant Farm and Sanctuary in Arkansas uses rail for elephant enclosures. A sixteen or twenty foot piece (I can't remember) is buried for half its length in concrete, leaving eight foot tall posts. More rails make the horizontal pieces, welded to the posts. Might seem like overkill until you see a sexually agitated African bull elephant up close." - Cecile Buls

Q: Like Cecile, have you seen some "repurposes" you can share??  Email Ideas>>

interestedPARTY"As fire chief for a rural all-volunteer, I was intrigued by the wheel chocks you had offered for sale.  We need these for all our firetrucks because we work in hilly terrain; however, they seem to have a way of "disappearing"...bouncing off of trucks on our bad roads, or getting left behind at a scene after a long night of work." - Carol Dollard

Q: Do you have non-conforming product or inventory that you need to get rid of?  We have interest!!  Call Damon at 303.321.1471 or Email Damon>>

repurposedCUSTOMER: "Wanted to let you know I used the sacks to move seed wheat grain to my farm in Oklahoma.  I purchased seed wheat this fall and didn't have an easy way to transport. We augered the seed wheat into the sacks and loaded and unloaded with a front end loader. It was easy to unload into the grain drill when we planted the wheat seed." -  Eddie in Oklahoma

YouTube Video:  This fascinating video shows the zipper barriers in action on the highways.  This big machine just moves the barriers over one lane like a zipper.  Watch Video>>

readerIDEA:  "I so these concrete barriers at the airport rental car parking structure.  They reminded me of your mini barriers you have in Dallas.  It looks like your barriers have steel hooks that would be able to hook chains to, too." Fred Garcia

repurposedSUGGESTION:  "Your 13x could work in several industries.  Natural Gas and Ammonia plants would use 13X…as would air pre-purifiers.  Need to look for 'mom and pop' operations in these sectors.  These are companies that would really like this at your $.50 on the dollar price." Bob in Kentucky

Forward to a Friend:  Please forward info about our 13x if you know somebody in the processing industries of natural gas, ammonia, or air purifiers. etc.
