Do You Have Wear Plate Blind Spot Issues?

Every business owner, manager or supervisor; has blind spots when it comes to their own equipment.

When we’re so close to our own issues every day, it’s difficult to identify them; let alone know how to fix them.

So how do you locate and improve what had been your own blind spots, when you can’t even see them? Here’s how every super-successful person in history does it.

Most of our business friends have a friendly competition that spurs us each to perform better.

It's so much harder to see the problems in our own business, and even harder to see the opportunities. But it's far easier to see the opportunities for someone else in their business.

When you get a group of like-minded people working together to improve and grow each other's business, the results are amazing.

And that is the essence of a Mastermind Group.


From left to right: Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, President Warren G. Harding, Harvey Firestone. They referred to their Mastermind group as ‘The Vagabonds’.

Henry Ford and Thomas Edison both attributed much of their success to the insights and inspirations generated by those around them.

In an atmosphere of trust and confidentiality, they gathered a small group of friends and explored their own issues and problems. The key idea was the men could generate perspectives which may escape the attention or focus of any one man, even Thomas Edison.

Recently we took turns and spent a day just breaking down everyone's business. We went through their business and basically diagrammed the individual steps, then broke them down, and identified where the actual opportunities exist. The new perceptions were startling with potential for improvement.

If you have never experienced this type of an environment, where we review your wear plate challenges, it is time to take your first step.

A newer Mastermind member had one of the best takeaways. “This is amazing. At times I feel stuck with my own wear problem(s), but I can look at other peoples' issues and I see where they are stuck. I can see where and how they can move forward. In one case I can see they are stuck due to their own limiting beliefs. It's so easy to focus on someone else's business.”

If you're not in a Mastermind yet, you need to join one. If you don't have one, start one by gathering trusted non-competing business people who strive to improve their business.

It is important to get together regularly with these like-minded people and spend time focusing on each other's businesses.

And here's the big take away lesson: The more you focus on someone else's business, the more insights you get into your own business.

Often, it's when someone else is being reviewed, where you're breaking apart their business and putting it back together, that's when you discover the biggest insights to improve your own business.

So if you're not currently in a mastermind, join one. When you are in one, contribute as much as you can because that's how you receive the most from the association with other forward thinkers.


JADCO strives to focus and help clarify areas which may currently be too close for you to see the potential for a major improvement in your own equipment.

Since our founding on August 8, 1988; JADCO strives to work with our customers in a Mastermind style environment. That is to identify areas for improvement by reviewing steps from a different perspective.

Perhaps a completely different type of wear resistant steel is needed to combat your unique set of challenges. JADCO is ready to help improve your results with the resources to design a totally new wear resistant product based on your needs.

Our entire Chromeweld ™ family of CCO products we make at our headquarters in Harmony, PA, is just 30 minutes North of Pittsburgh. Made in the USA.

As the leading manufacturer of Chrome Carbide Overlay wear plate in the USA, you can depend on the performance you get from JADCO.

Most steel distributors buy foreign CCO which likely has little carbide content, and even less quality control.


To make certain we control the highest quality in every aspect of our Chromeweld overlay plate, JADCO created our own clad machines.

For the last 40 years we have focused exclusively on delivering consistent, longer life for our customers.

Now you understand why JADCO delivers better results for our customers. We think differently by focusing only on your results.
