Take the bull by the horns

A few customers who purchased wheel balance machines from George discovered they needed a special cone to balance super-duty pick-up truck wheels.

George contacted the manufacturer but, he said "They couldn't offer me anything, so I had to take the bull by the horns."

With engineering help from one of his customers who builds off-road vehicles from scratch, George designed a special spacer that gets the job done. He's in the process of having some made and he'll give them away to the customers who need them.
