Time-conserving, money-saving, aggravation-avoiding ideas for solving typical maintenance problems should be shared with others in the plant engineering profession. This idea-exchange concept serves as the basic philosophy for Plant Engineering magazine's tenth annual "Tips & Tricks" article.
Details of this article were explained in the May issue. Readers were invited to submit shortcut maintenance methods or procedures that they have used over the years for solving commonly encountered problems. A review panel examined the submittals and selected those appearing on the following pages for publication.
Review the suggestions offered by others in the plant engineering profession, and vote for the five you believe are the most useful by writing the tip numbers on the special ballot located next to p 86. The item receiving the most votes will win the "Plant Engineering Maintenance Tip of the Year Award." The submitter will receive $1000 for the suggestion. The two runners-up will each receive $250.
Please return all ballots by October 26, 1998.
In all cases, even if not specifically mentioned in the writeups, always use the appropriate safety equipment and procedures when applying the tips.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
