We all work with wood in some shape or form (or are reading the group for some other reason). I assume that many of us look for machinery from time to time as proven by the many posts about what (insert generic object title here) to buy.
When looking for specific info, some people ask here... Some people look in trade publications... Some people visit the net / MSC / McMaster / ThomasRegister / Amazon / HF / Grizzly, etc. eBay is sometimes a viable search area too since many of us look for used or low cost equipment either for kicks or sometimes just for spare parts, etc.
For our company, I hit the trade publications and web sites as often as we can afford to. We also work very hard to have a high page rank and many "doors" to our business via web site(s). We are on Thomas's web "thing" as well as a few others. Am I missing some other avenue to advertise woodworking - or in my specialized case, production drilling machinery?
Would love to be able to grow the business... But want to make sure I'm not missing some great opportunity to advertise somewhere just because I don't know about it. Rather than doubling my efforts in the areas we already know are working, I'm seeking for new ideas on where to put my time and effort...
So, I ask the question... Where do YOU look when you need equipment?
I posted this separately on a metalworking group too because we do get leads from that industry more often. However, you never know where the next great idea or piece of information is going to come from.
