Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Am. 13, 1W ItTHMIDGI Equipment partsmaii's life can be very exciting The life of a farm equipment partsinan is nol oil smites and chuckles and a matter of writ- ing out a bill of sate. Joe Kemery, parlsinan for T n T Farm Equipment i n Ciaresholm for 18 years, finds the job- not only challenging but very fulfilling. Working with a standing 000 pails inventory, Joe tries his best to keep the vital parts in slock. "We try to outguess the breakdowns he said. The heart of the parts de- partment, aside from Joe, is tin; cataloguing and card in- cT exi ng system whi ch in akes tracking down parts a simple chore. When a farmer comes in for a part, Joe looks in the master catalogue for the right machine from which the b roken part came. If, over the phone, the farmer describes the part, Joe can I rack it down in the cata- logue. Once the machine is known, he looks up a corresponding card from the index file. This card will tell him if the part is in stock, which bin it is in, a short description of the part and the retail price. The number of the part is the number on the card and a farmer can buy that yart through the use of the number from any dealer in the world handling the Massey Ferguson line of equipment. If the parts aren't in stock, the company has to phone to the warehouse in Calgary. De- lays are kept to a minimum if at all possible. Incl ud ed in the various "jobs" within the description of parisman are repairman, hy- draulic hose coupler and public relations officer. Often times, if a part can't be found, Joe will use pieces from his s lora ge room to make a quick fix to tide the farmer over until the right part can be obtained. In a specialized roll, Joe is responsible for providing farm- ers with hydraulic hose. He has some equipment used for put- ting ends on the hose to make them the right length for the farmer's needs. also has one of the largest slocks of fan belts and pulley in southern Alberta as well as a full range of pulleys and sprockets.
