"Recently I was in need of a float switch for our CNC Machine at the Met-Lab here at Severstal Columbus. I couldn't find any documentation on the machine so to ThomasNet I went. Was able to locate a local distributor and the actual vendor the machine was purchased from..... I had my part within a couple of days."

"When I need help with any services, or parts that I have no idea where to go-I just go to the ThomasNet web site, and punch in what I want. It provides me with companies in my area that I may never have known of, and also lets me know when companies that I have already dealt with also provide added services that I was not aware of. I get fast results, which is a must when you have to keep machines and production lines running. It's also great when it comes to quoting a job. You can immediately identify companies with this specific service, and easily get the number of quotes you need for the best pricing of a task, or part. It's my favorite tool for finding information quickly; so I have answers for questions that must be answered as soon as they possibly can. I love ThomasNet.com. It makes my job a lot less stressful, and me a more efficient Supervisor."

"I was looking for a way to ream a .814" hole 36" long in hardened tubing. I found Ingersoll cutting tools and modified my pull reaming operation to a push reaming operation. I saved 30 minutes per part and got finishes of 25Ra to 40Ra plus my holes runout only .001"/foot. Outstanding site!"
