How many of you running a cotton gin have ordered gin ribs, and when they show up there is a whole bunch of them that are crooked and not straight? You can't even put the damn things in. I wonder why any manufacturer would send their customers crap like this. It's like they fail to understand the importance of a gin rib in the ginning process. That scenario has never happened with Vandergriff Ribs. Never. We have strict quality controls from the start of the production process to the finish. We are constantly checking tolerances, even right up to the end to make sure our customers get what they have come to expect from us. Quality, precision and performance. This has always been the case since inception, 1994. Those in the know didn't wait long to put them in their gin stands and put gin rib issues (which led to gin stand issues) far behind them.
Vandergriff Game Changer ribs receiving yet another inspection for precision and accuracy. Gin ribs is what we do. We have always taken this very seriously.

The second run of Continental Game changer ribs are finished and getting ready to go to plating. They should ship late next week.
Machining complete on second run of Game Changers.
Getting boxed and ready for shipment to plating. Once they return, wearplates will be installed and this lot of ribs should ship out late next week. We are doing a third and final run of game changers (forgings on the way) and these should be ready by mid-June. The waiting list is getting close to full. Call and reserve yours while you can.
Getting ready to go to plating.
We are also building up a big inventory of wearplates for all models of our rib. If you need replacement inserts, give us a call.
The Gin Rib Hotline
Loyd nor Chris of CNC Performance Engineering will be at the Texas show this year. Chris is busy running game changer ribs for Continental Gin Stands. Two shifts worth. We have shipped out the first run and are well into the second. There will be one more run before we switch over to running Lummus Ribs. It is critical to get on the list ASAP to ensure that you will get the ribs you need for the upcoming season. We will be stocking a considerable amount of spares and will not get into these to fill orders that come in late.
If you are running a Lummus gin stand that has very narrow saw spacing's, we can make you a rib. Our CNC machined ribs from forgings are accurate and strong. Any issues you might be having currently in this area could be resolved. We have made some tweaks in design to deal with the smaller variety of seed.
I hope everyone has a great show. I hope to be there next year. Lots of good friends and good people there.
Shipping em out!
Made in the USA!
