    I was thinking that would help.

    I was looking at a big building that is all concrete construction, kind'a like a parking garage. You just about couldn't talk to someone else doo to the echo in there, but I think once it was full of equipment that would calm down considerably. (???) If not, would have maybe had to put some soft stuff up somewhere.

    Is your ceiling tinned also?

    I think I'll be long gone before that building has any troubles.

    When the poles were set concrete was put at the bottom of each hole.

    I don't think you'll have any problems............plenty of pole buildings out there that will be around longer than many of us...................

    As for liner tin...........walls and ceiling are all steel. Can't beat it really.........put it up and you're done. No tape 'n mud, no prime 'n paint...............

    Got some bus bar up and hope to have it powered in 2-3 weeks.

    Finally got the electric co's blessing on the electricians plans. He's just has to get everything installed and inspected before they hook up the power.

    Got another delivery today, I now have a proper compressor.

    Well, the move starts next Wednesday. The riggers will be here bright and early. I have a funny feeling that I won't get much sleep Tuesday night, kinda like when I was a kid on Christmas eve.

    I've been busy draining the honing machines, unwiring all of the machinery and getting all of the shipping brackets on them. Tradebe came yesterday and vacuumed the coolant out of all of my machines.

    I've also been trying to think like the riggers and clearing any obstructions that would slow them down from removing all of the machinery. There's some benches and other stuff in the way, but I cleared them off pretty good so we can get them out of the way when we need to without too much drama. It's pretty tight in here but we have been here for 30 years this year.

    I've spent the better part of this week re-enacting the great purge lol. I've made quite a few trips to the local scrapyard, and I have a few more to go. It's amazing the amount of crap you can accumulate in 30 years. There's a guy with a shop right around the corner from me. I've been giving him all of the material that I don't want to haul up to the new shop. I'm going to keep all of the stainless, aluminum and plastic and some of the steel. The guy around the corner is going to take the rest. I'll give him a smoking deal on the stuff because he's a good guy and helping me out quite a bit by saving me from paying to move the stuff, not to mention the time it would take me.

    I was dreading this move, but I need to get out of Connecticut. So far the move really hasn't been that bad. My desire to move out of this state is what's driving me and knowing that in a few month's I'll be outa here makes me (and the Mrs.) happy.

    Here are some more pics. We got the floor scored and the second busway is up. All that is left is to get the electrical finished and the power hooked up (it's close), seal the floor and get the airlines up. I'm hoping to be running again mid by September at the latest.

    "Business Wise" is NY much better than CT?

    I have been hearing here and there about a slight Exodus out of NY. (Not Egypt)

    How on Earth can you be down for 2 months for a move?

    My dad's shop is in NY. My little brother works with my dad. The plan is to combine our shops. My dad is 71 in September and he want's to semi retire. My brother and I are going to run the show and my dad wants to help out part time. I joke with him and tell him once he slows down my mom is really gonna put him to work so he's probably just gonna hide out at the shop full time anyways lol.

    I really wanted to move to New Hampshire, but NY was the right thing to do.

    NY is not the perfect place, but is there such a thing as the perfect place?

    In NY where we are, there is no car taxes, no taxes on our manufacturing equipment, and the electricity is approximately half what it is here. My tax bill (prop tax + school tax) for our house up there are about 2/3 what I pay down here, but I have a HELL of a lot more to show for my tax dollars. My tax bill for my Ct 70's raised ranch on 1.41 acres is $5400.00 and another $800 or so in vehicle taxes!

    Those are 4 things in the + column for NY. Gas is a little more expensive up there though.

    As far as being down till mid September, I like to err on the side of caution, yeah I'll prolly be up and running before that. and mid Sept is 6 weeks not 2 months.

    Just think, when I get done moving my shop, i get to move my home!

    It sounds like you shut down already and have started un-dooing things already in preparation?

    Vehickle tax?
    I have 4 of my own that are registered and insured (not counting Mamma's 'Burban)
    3 of those don't git very far and/or are religated mostly for snow-plowing, but none-the-less....

    I officially shut down at the end of the day on Friday. I was prepping a few of the machines while I was still "open" though.

    All the heavy stuff is loaded up and headed to it's new home.

    2 trailers, and probably another 2 for all of the smaller stuff.

    Sorry for the short post, but I got a shit ton of work to do .
