    Tall ceiling height is good, because it gives you room to hang large absorbant batts up high, breaking up the soundfield. That is, if you can get the lights below them.

    It's also where all your...

    Do the load and hoist reach allow you to grab it from the side of the rear opening, and then drive the trailer away (picking up the ramp) in order to lower the load? Hoist legs would go under door...

    Drop deck trailer for sure. Pallet jack for wheels. Winch for motive power into the trailer -- even a hand winch, properly geared, would do. Or push it with a forklift.

    As mentioned above, surge...

    If it were my task, I would load things in and begin operations, and use a spectrum analyzer to see where your problem areas are.

    Then, look up Helmholtz resonators to absorb narrow frequency...

    Consider doing two at once, (face to face, not stacked) perhaps with some sacrificial material in between, to lessen interrupted cut loads if they're an issue. Plus you can mess up with half the...

    That's pretty clever. I use E-track in my trailers, and E-track load bars are good for 2200 lbs. working weight each. E-track is slightly stronger, especially when welded continuously along its...

    Perhaps print it with voids inside that provide the right balance of give and support so that air isn't needed. You can install the valve stems if needed for scale accuracy. You could even increase...

    Grave vault delivery trailers have always caught my eye as a possible machine-mover. Overhead arches supporting an I-beam (& chain fall) that extends out over the back end, with a possible outboard...

    Some film/video/photo folks use the firearms loophole. Pack your 'good' stuff as normal, and include a starter pistol or flare gun in it. Then, declare it when you check your luggage. Special...

    Head-worn noise cancelling will be best for noise rejection. It may not be as hi-fi as a standard mic, but intelligibility will be better.

    That said, when it comes time to edit your videos, there...

    So, would this work on my $500 baby grand that now has a dull brown finish with some checking? I'd just be shooting for 'smoother' and a fairly uniform color. Not looking for mirror anything, and...

    So take it inside and let it acclimate to interior humidity rather than using clamps to take out the 'swelling'. That trick never works.

    Put cardboard or plastic on the drawer bottoms for now.

    Did the owner have a competitor in the region? Or co-workers who may want to take all? Worth a look.

    So it needs to be that way because it needs to be that way. It's a design requirement.

    The goal is to make the handle part as light as possible, but so that it still feels appropriate to the...

    I needed to move a bigger-than-forklift-capacity mill a while back. I made HDPE feet to skid it on (over smooth shop floor). I could lift corners, so I used short bolts to keep machine from sliding...
