When you set up a shop it's always nice to have a certain flow. You start in a set place and kind of move in a circle till the frame is done and goes to paint. When you get new equipment though, the easy approach is to find a place that it fits without thought of the overall fit. I had hit a point where there were numerous things that just needed to be moved. The issue was these items weighed thousands of pounds and I never really wanted to do it.
I got the Cincinnati and knew the time had come. The shop got torn apart on Friday and Ed and I wrapped up the last thing at the end of the day Saturday when we ran the wires for the Cincinnati. The project was a rather huge undertaking but thankfully there is this wonderful invention called the pallet jack. Hard to believe that bugger can pick up 5,000 lbs. I can at least say it picks up 4,400 lbs! We moved a bunch of stuff, made a few additions and the end result is we brought in a beast of a machine yet the shop has a better flow and is roomier than before we started. It is very feng shui in my opinion. Not a bad way to spend two work days as it will ultimately lead to lots of time saved and a more productive space. Here is a crappy bird's eye view of the new layout.
I have been getting heat from my webmaster that I am lacking painted bikes. We got Bob's dirt road bike back from paint and it looks rather slick. Monday I will snap some photos (plus Bob wants to see it before we send it off to Santa Barbara!!)
