    Not the best definition, but does mention crush pins, and goes over a general turbine overhaul

    Got a container moved this week.

    Gonna start to move some stuff out of the shop soon.

    I wanted a 40', but I saved 600 being able to move this 20' myself. Bought it from a bunch of gobbers, but its in great shape and I paid 1200-1500 below current market price for it.

    I don't understand the container.
    Are you bulging at the seams in that new building already?

    Or maybe you feel that you can put higher value toys in there and able to lock it up better than the building?
    Maybe even puting it inside the building?

    He hasn't had any room since day one. Nearly as bad as my place.

    We have a 10-12 containers at our place and I think you're good to have a pair of 20' containers rather than a 40'. We use them for long term machinery and inventory storage and no matter how well you organize things, the thing you want is always at the back of the container. With two 20 footers you have half the stuff to unload to get to the prize. The only advantage I see in a 40' is being able to store something longer than 20'.

    I want to get another one, I have a 20' I have a 20' long car port that I want to set on top of two containers to part my big forklift and a truck under.

    But yes I am out of space. Project that I havent touched, but I wanna keep are going in the container. And trying to sell machines to make space as well.

    Working on the 100" king a bit, crazy busy at work, but need this machine running

    Got the chuck in the Poreba to mill report journals and mating face

    The upper brg looks to be potato chipped .005. Its got an interference fit to the chuck, and two jack bolts 180 deg apart. When you take the big off, you can visually see it bending when it hangs up where there is no jack bolt.

    Drilled a lifting hole in the OD of the chuck so I can put it in a lathe.

    Gonna make sure the chuck face is true to the journals, skim as required. Then skim the back of the brg to make sure its true, then add two more jack bolts to brg to hopefully prevent it getting bent again.

    Next ill set up the lower brg to correct the off center condition

    Big parts = hours and hours of set-up, and minutes of machining.

    I have a neighboring welding shop that built a make-shift shed out of a pr of small containers and a roof support just as you are stating.

    Some times it's weeks as well. We do disc weld repairs where disc on a rotor are cut off, then welded back and re machined. Also we make brand new small integral rotors.

    Those are 1000s of hours of work.

    That Poreba is a neat looking machine. I've seen a few older smaller Porebas in the 30-40" range and they looked a bit junky. That thing is neat, lots of cool features from the looks of it. What's the model number?

    Annoyingly unproductive weekend. Tried to assemble 1175, but a part isn't right. So gotta order more stuff.

    But got the #2 dug out the back of the shop. Hopefully loading it on a trailer soon. Its been sold.

    I'm a fan of shipping containers. But once you get small stuff into them, they turn into big piles on the floor and you climbing over the top. I've always wanted to figure out easy shelving / racking for them. This is what I came up with last week. 4x4 pine chamfered to fit in the ribs, with notches for u-bolts. 1-3/8" x 5/16" x longer u-bolts pull the 4x4 up to the wall of the container. 15/16" wood spade bit for jamming 3/4" EMT into.

    Not rocket surgery. But perhaps helpful for you. Keep up the good work!

    NICE! I'm in the middle of the exact same project. But, with steel and a welder. The results will be identical though.

    We always welded unistrut to the inside of them - made changes easy, but it wasn't my pocket book paying for the unistrut.

    Gondola shelving works pretty well, too. Reusable, reconfigurable, easily moved around.

    After lots of mill reporting. Skimmed the making face on the chuck, was running out .007 in places

    Aligned to mating face and register fit on female bearing. Conical face was only running out .003. Checked the mating face in the machine with my puck, and its running out .010 to bearings.

    Aligned the mating face of the bearing to have the same runout thats on the machine. And then the conical face was running out roughly the same as I was seeing.

    Alighed the conical face to have as close to the same runout as what I had when it was in the machine and cut it

    Gonna try and tool post grind it for finish.

    These are a parts are all large parts that are deflecting under load/bolts and have lots of clearance. Not chasing .0001 on this old machine.

    After this, bearing will be installed in machine again with water jetted shim.

    Male bearing will be scraped to fit the female bearing and hopefully all will be good
