Articles not yet on Wikipedia.[edit]

I was looking for the definition of a Power Lock on Wikipedia and couldn't find it. From the Keyed joint page the Hirth joint seemed the closest match, but definitely the wrong category. I was hoping someone might see the referenced PDFs, know something about these devices, and create a page, but after you deleted it I figured I might as well start it. I've added Power Lock to Coupling#Others in the hopes that someone will see it and fill it in. I now know from the manufacturers data sheets how it works and what it does but not much more so that's all I've added to the new page. Uno b4 (talk) 08:30, 9 October 2013 (UTC)

Congratulations on creating the new page, but as you can see by checking it, there are some remaining issues. First and foremost is the lack of reliable 3rd-party sources. Does anyone other than the manufacturer write about Power Lock's anywhere? If not, then it just might not be a topic suitable for an encyclopedia. I appreciate that you are trying to get the word about about a product that you find important, but a key aspect to Wikipedia, and arguably one of the keys to its success as an information resource, is that everything in it needs to pass a minimal notability criteria, and all facts have to be verifiable. -AndrewDressel (talk) 15:10, 9 October 2013 (UTC)
Your page about the Hirth joint is very useful for people who haven't come across it before. In the same way I was looking for a page to learn more about what I now know are called Tapered shaft locks, but seeing none there I made a (obviously from the take-down notice) poor start at a page. The factory I'm working at in Japan just calls them Power Locks and I don't have any English speakers I can ask about more international names, so that's what I called the page. Hopefully now there is enough information on the page for it to stay there for a year or two until some Mechanical Engineering student can fill the rest in from his lecture notes, or until someone who has time on their hands decides to go through the resource links and fill it in.
