thank god for monorails. engineers didnt account for support channels or hanging rods so we had to figure this out on the fly. we were reallu pushing the limits, had to almost double the engineered distance between beams. 6000 lbs on that little channel. she flexed gooder. nail biter.

Fuck, thats a tight fit in the boiler. i thought the cold box i was doing bolt up in last summer was bad hahahaha. had to cut all the piping out as the 6" and 10 " stainless expansions failed and buckled even with the shipping braces still attached--scary.

now have to attach the plate rack (big counter weight) so the crane can boom way out to where the piece is landing without losing the battle with leverage. didnt get a good pic of it was in a bit of a hurry at this point but thats a big ass pin in front of me that connect it to the crane.
