SYMPOSIUM

About Symposium

It takes a lot of people to make Symposium products! Here are some of them.

Making Ultras and Supers


It takes skill, hard work and careful attention to detail to make Ultra and Super Plus platforms. Tom is a excellent young craftsman who takes pride in helping to make our Ultra and Super Plus platforms.

Want to make a Svelte Shelf? You're going to need a few things- like a giant Wyborg cutting press, and a few years experience in the metalworking trade! Here, Joe carefully measures a stainless steel top plate to be cut for a custom Svelte Shelf.
Stainless steel is hard to cut- and must be chopped by the likes of this giant press. When this baby chops the steel, the impact shakes the concrete floor of the entire shop- and can be felt out in the parking lot!
Rollerblocks are machined in a state-of-the-art facility in New Jersey that also makes human medical implants and precision parts for helicopters and monorails. In other words, people's lives literally depend upon the quality of work that comes out of this factory. The same precision that makes the Rollerblock comes from these top quality people, and we are proud of the work they do- but then again, we wouldn't settle for anything less!
Steve examines some Rollerblock test pieces, making sure the cups are being polished correctly before starting on the actual run. Behind Steve is one of the machines that makes the Rollerblocks. While precision is nominally guaranteed to within 1/1000th of an inch, typical unit-to-unit tolerances are usually on the order of 50 millionths of an inch or better.

Some of Our Helpers

At left, Bradley works on Rollerblocks. He's got good reason to smile with that pile of homemade "Symposium" cookies! At right, Barbara packs Standard Couplers.
Al, a professional sound engineer who has mixed concert sound for the likes of Tommy James, the Romantics, Mitch Ryder, the Association, and others, helps with things technical. Here he struggles to communicate with a stubborn oscilloscope. At right, another side of Barbara. Careful with that razor, Barbara.
Mike grinds Rollerblocks - just one of several stages in their production. This is a demanding job which requires concentration, skill, and almost athletic endurance!

Friends and Their Machines

Here's Sal, who occasionally makes precision parts for us, with a new "toy." At right is another of Sal's toys. Sal did all of the finishing work on this one, which tells us that Sal is a man who loves his work. This beautiful machine was originally made by another American outfit you may have heard of, and Sal also occasionally makes parts for this firm, too. We feel we're in really good company.
