Reid Supply Company
One of my first engineering classes was mechanical drawing….very similar to the illustration. The drawings had to be perfert….sometimes taking hours to complete.
Reid Supply Company has been in business since 1948….supplying industrial products. Their 2012-2013 catalog has 896 pages of tools….structural systems….assembly parts for most any type of manufacturing.
Manufacturing is the foundation of the economy. It’s nice to browse through the Reid catalog with many of their tools and parts accompanied by mechanical drawings. While these drawings are probably not done by hand any more….they are just as important as they were 50 years ago.
