Designing a product? If you're thinking about manufacturing with metal instead of plastic, think about these 5 great reasons why metal might be a better choice for you:
Crane and rigging training institutes can now provide trainees with durable, long-lasting sheave gauges as giveaways at a fraction of the cost competitors charge.
Our most popular sheave gauge - called our Special Group I (1/4" - 1-1/2") - sells for less than $10 each at high volume quantities (1,000+).
