    We seem to be doing a lot more refurbishing jobs on machines such as Cat dump trucks, Genie EWP's, etc. I was wondering if any of you guys do the same sort of work, if so how do you go about finding or making the templates for each machine?

    Also on the safety side of the machines, is there some form of library containing all of the different safety diagrams? Is there are source that explains what decals are required on the machines?

    Reason I ask is because a lot of the machines here in the goldfields are that used & destroyed you're lucky to find a spot of paint on it let alone stickers!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Cheers,
    John

    for most of those.....BRAND RELATED your goan have to contact the dealership. most of the safety labels are easy to reproduce as they are black helvetica text on a yellow background.
    you can get most of the text from........OSHA...........its them who require it.
    BRADY MACHINES........had the corner on this market till the sol-jets. now anyone can make these labels.

    Yeah, we used to have to go through the dealers for all Caterpillar stuff but that has all changed (here anyways) the dealerships do not stock the kits for many of the superseded machines that we are doing now, also turnaround time is quite an issue with some euro companies taking in excess of 2 months do deliver stickers.

    As for the safety stickers, some are easy to reproduce, but many have diagrams on them. I have attached an image to show what i mean.
