pix from work

random pictures i thought i'd share.
high definition plasma cutter, working on an order for 28,000 burnouts. sick machine.


random pic of my bike next to an un-assembled blanchard grinder.


a burning machine burning some thick shit, we can burn material up to 2 feet thick.

this is a table that we built for holding giant rollers for a steel mill, it's upside down and only half painted.





the rest of the pics are just from a steel mill that i was at a few weeks ago and i snapped a few pics, we supply alot of pieces for them to repair their latels, the big buckets, when they're full of molting steel they weigh over 1 million lbs. the guy told me that the overhead crane is rated for 40 thousand tons.

over head cranes, alot of our jobs go over 100,000 lbs. it's a crazy place, with alot of people with missing fingers. i run a 1000 ton brake press, that machine has taken quite a few fingers.

Wow, that makes the little parts that I make seem really small.





I never ran anything as big as you but I did use to run a lathe with a 24" chuck. Most of those parts got lifted with a 1 ton jib crane. I learned early on that you have to be well rested, and have a clear head when you work around the big stuff. The day you show up to work with a hangover is the day you lop off a finger in that press.

Cool stuff, thanks for posting.

Nice pics, man. I retired from a job (35 years) that required me to take full plant tours of all kinds of manufacturing facilities. It's incredible how clueless the general public is about how things are made. Pics like these give a little glimpse into the "manufacturing world". Never ceases to fascinate me. Be carefull!!!
