New Ways to Correct Old Problems

In my wanderings, I am looking for new ways of dealing with old problems. Jim Palmer had told me to look him up at the show and he would show me one of those solutions. If you have ever assembled a structure you know how much fun it is to get the holes to line up for bolting.

It takes a lot of beating and a good deal of time. Jim has process that does away with the how process. It is a "quick-pin" system. It is so simple even an engineer can do it. My linemen buddies would have a few comments to add, but we can skip that since I control the blog. Go see Jim at Thomas & Betts and ask him about it.
