Al Bino Industrial Belting presents a salute to the glorious machines of the industrial age
It is our intent here to give you oldsters a wink (or high-five) and a walk down memory lane. However, if you are not quite old enough to appreciate “the good times”, we encourage you to weigh some benefits of going forward with what you see here. There is a growing cult, and a widening age bracket, who have done just that, and we are here to recognize them for their pursuits and accomplishments.
These are the machines that have stood the test of time, because they were produced in an era when shaving costs to the bone was not the primary objective, but getting the job done right with pride and principle was. Can anyone relate to how a speck of dust or broken wire in sensitive, complex, computerized machines of today result in considerable downtime/expense? Have you pulled your hair out to get a replacement part, or parts so integral to the machine if it is no longer made, you have a machine that is worthless? I will take a pass on welcoming you to the current era.
The dependable brutes we show here ask not much more than a squirt of oil to keep them chugging along. Enjoy the trip, and join the crowd!
