Web Site Critique and Ideas Wanted


With the holiday season coming up, business usually slows down a bit for a few days. During those times, I like to re-think the web site info I have out there.
Today, I'm re-thinking an application page we threw up on the site a while back which seems to work well for us. If you have time and are opinionated enough to give me your thoughts <grin>, I'd love to know if you think we have missed an important application and/or opportunity on the following link:
http://www.multi-drill.com/multi-spindle-head-apps.htm
Do you know of an application that we could add which would draw customers to us? How about a different angle on a current application? Etc...
A perfect example is that we just added the page for simple, low-end drill press machine users... Never thought of the obvious and most common use until now. Duh!
As I've said in a few other forums I'm hitting up for ides... I'll owe a whole lot of you free coffee or drinks when we hit it big. <grin again>
Happy Thanksgiving to all!

I have long been looking for a horizontal drill with a multi-adjustable head. I'd really like a 5 head with adjustable centers along a single axis but could get by with a fixed set for now at 1.5" centers but looks like I'll have to settle for a 3 head. I need to drill dowel holes or round tenon holes in the edge of board stock for pickets.
Grizzly, Ritter (and others) have horiz boring machines, it would be nice to know that these heads could be used on those.
Also the drill press idea is good too. I have some applications where an adjustable 2 head would be perfect.
Probably 6 months out before I'll move on the product lines that need these but I'll come looking when I do.

Adjustable 5 spindle heads do exist... But they are generally huge and relatively expensive. Sometimes these adjustable heads are simply too large for the machine you want to mount them on (i.e. 40-80+ lbs and ... well... did I mention huge?) On a drill press, they simply pull the quill down and you have to "pull" the handle in the opposite direction to keep it from staying in the extended position.
5 spindles fixed is something we and others can easily do... 3 adjustable is also something that can be done. See the "rail head" application page for a similar fixed spindle head (http://www.multi-drill.com/multi-spindle-head-app8.htm )

No problem. Light duty application for us or anyone else who makes these types of heads.

Potentially possible. Depends on what is available to mount to on the machine, whether the machine can handle the weight of a head... Also, whether the unit has enough power to perform the 5 hole process.

Sounds like we should talk someday. <grin>
If you call us, ask for me and mention that we spoke on this forum. I'll spend the time with you (or anyone else from here) to answer any questions that I can. Sometimes that means I generate a quote for you and sometimes that means I send you to someone else who has a better product for what you want to do. Unlike some places, I never want to sell a piece of equipment to someone that "might" work.

Thank you. It is always good to hear there is interest. Business is always preferable than no business...
As a potential user of a product like this, did you see anything on the application pages that could have described the product better for you? That is the real purpose of my original post (although I'll take a future sale anytime). I hope to be able to make it easy for folks to find something they are not generally familair with.
I picture someone like you typing into Google or Yahoo, "5 holes at a time in a board" or something similar when looking for a machine. If I can maximize my page for these random searches or at least make the photos and/or information relevant to those that stumble across it in their searches, I can look forward to more calls and, of course more sales.
