It's been a while since I've posted anything. Frankly been to busy to, moved and been working hard to get everything built up and in it's place.

Well, it's been a lot of work in a short timeframe. Poured the floor, got the walls insulated and drywalled, finally rolled everything in, in about a month. Got a couple more things to move in, but 41000 lbs of iron moved in is good enough for this weekend haha!
Big Cincinnati is 20000lbs, little cincinnati lathe is 10000, and the universal mill is 11000.
Concrete is 5" thick. 32mpa with fiber and rebar

Those machinery skates are the cats ass

Looks great! Keep the pictures coming. What are you doing for electrical?
Cheers

We are planning to hook up to the 3ph lines that run probably 100' away from the shop. 200-400a of 600v would be good.
We will wire the shop end~
Wow! You're not kidding about "heavy iron".......

That shop space looks great.



....and heat?

Heat is currently running off a diesel gun furnace~
Is the Saber a vickers/Siemens control?
Precisely! Both the controls are the A2100. Vickers/Siemens. Very good controller, I've run a few and it is my favorite

Thanks guys! I will definitely keep more pictures coming as it progresses :)

Just some more pics of the shop going up. Prepping the ground is the most important for a slab that holds heavy stuff. So we dug out the roots and placed good material for under the slab, ran it over with a 1000lb compactor for quite some time.
Pictures will probably upload all scrambled, but that's ok

All your machines look so rust free!
How do you maintain that?

You are West of the Rockies, right? I expect your climate to be very humid.
Especially right now with no real doors on the new shop.

Haha thank you!
I am indeed west to the Rockies~ pretty close to them. I am in the monashee mountain range.

Rust is a big problem. Right now they are a little rustier then I like!
I use grease or heavy oil on anything I can't have rust on. Grease is really hard to get off tho.
Ideally you just can't leave them anywhere the temperature fluctuates. Or the water in the air condenses on the cold steel.

If there is rust, I am diligent with a stone on precision surfaces, scotchbrite and sandpaper on non precise surfaces :)
