It’s no surprise that sometimes, it’s exceedingly difficult to find just the right replacement parts that you need for your industrial machinery. An online search turns up dozens of industrial spare parts, but not quite what you’re looking for. Talk about frustrating!

That’s where REMPCO Acquisition comes in. We stock and sell some of the most unusual and obscure parts in the industry! In this blog post, we’ll guide you through how to find just the right part you need from us, and if we don’t carry it, there’s also the possibility of having us custom-make something for you. But before going that route, here’s what to do when you need custom, semi-custom, or obscure replacement parts.

Step 1: Figure Out What It’s Called

Don’t laugh; often times, figuring out what a thingamajig is called is half the battle! You know your machinery, you know which part isn’t working, but it may not be obvious upon first inspection what, specifically, needs to be replaced. Or you may have the broken piece in your hand, but you don’t know what it’s called. No need to worry; this dilemma is much more common than you may realize, and it can be resolved fairly easily.

To narrow down possibilities, start with our main categories. Under Threaded Products, you’ll find everything from threaded nuts to feed and conveyor shafts. Browse through each subcategory to see if you find something in the description or illustrations resembling what you’re searching for. Under Gears, you’ll see worm gear sets, helical gears, and more. Again, take some time to look through our offerings and see if anything looks even remotely familiar to what you might need.

Step 2: Determine If What We Have In Stock Can Serve You

Now that you’ve browsed through our offerings, perhaps learned the names of some of the parts that you’re missing and might need, read our descriptions, and looked through some of our charts and diagrams, you can better determine if we carry the specific industrial replacement parts your equipment or machinery needs. If we have that obscure part you’re looking for, great! We’re happy that your search was fruitful. Feel free to reach out to us before ordering your part (or parts) if you’d like to consult with a knowledgeable REMPCO representative first. Then order your parts, and we’ll ship directly to you so you can get your industrial machinery going again quickly!

Step 3: Reach Out To REMPCO To See If We Can Customize A Part For You

If you’re not finding what you need, then there is another option for you: we can custom-make the obscure or unusual part for you. In fact, our ability to manufacture a wide range of custom components for industrial applications is one of our strengths.

We can give you an estimate based on your drawings, images, or any sample parts you’re able to send our way. Requesting a quote from us is simple; to get started, simply give us a call, or fill out our convenient online form. Even if you just have a question, you can reach out to us by phone or form, and we’ll be happy to help you determine what you need and how to best fill that need.
