Birmingham, AL – Motion Industries, a leading distributor of industrial maintenance, repair, and operation (MRO) replacement parts is excited to release a new addition to the Tom’s Toolbox video series. The videos are available for viewing on Motion Industries’ MiHow2 YouTube channel, which was established in 2012.

In “How to Properly Install a Falk Shaft-Mount Gear Unit,” Tom gets hands-on and shows the viewer the correct way to install a Falk Shaft-Mount Gear Unit onto a head shaft bearing. The video can now be viewed on the MiHow2 YouTube channel, under the Tom’s Toolbox heading. (To view the video immediately, please click the Falk title above.)

“Using a shaft-mount gear unit helps reduce stress on the bearings, which in turn can extend the life of your equipment,” said Randy Breaux, Motion Industries’ Senior Vice President, Southern U.S. Operations, Corporate Marketing and Strategic Planning. “Simple things such as its proper mounting, while often overlooked, can be extremely cost- effective.”

Tom’s Toolbox embodies the “how-to” format but in shorter time snippets. In the series, the comical yet always knowledgeable host Tom Clark demonstrates a broad range of solutions designed to save viewers money and time, and/or keep safe on the job. Each Tom’s Toolbox video short is filmed in a workshop setting or an appropriate off-site setting.

The series is also available for viewing via Facebook and YouTube. Additional Tom’s Toolbox videos are scheduled to be posted in coming weeks.
