Connecting the “Right People” at the Right Times: Seeking Serendipity–EP 188

May 30, 2023 - 2:22pm -- Selcuk Gulboy
Noah with Chris Armstrong in Front of Citizen K16 VIIP after Successfully Running it!

Steve Jobs once said, “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.”

Today, I’m going to tell you a story about how dots in my past came together serendipitously to help me solve problems and make some good deals in our used machinery business. When I met the people in these stories, I had no idea they would be significant to our business down the line, and of course, I never could have predicted how they would connect with one another.

Lately, Graff-Pinkert has seen a lot of new opportunities for our used machinery business–particularly in the category of machines that I like to call “Sexy Ugly.” Many customers are clearing the decks of their dirty Acme, Davenport, and Brown & Sharpe cam screw machines to become pure CNC machine shops, while at the same time, quite a few machining companies are still embracing those ancient cast iron beasts.

Take Your Best Shot at Tesla

May 16, 2023 - 3:03pm -- Selcuk Gulboy

I followed a Tesla Model S driving home last night. Attractive blue sedan, even in the Chicago gloom.

I have not personally seen any other makes of electric vehicles other than a rivian pickup, which looked like it had never been driven on the streets of Chi-town. I know Ford has sold some Mustangs, and GM sold some Bolts, which they discontinued. I see no electric BMWs or Mercedes or Audis or Chinese built electric varieties in my town.
