    The dust collection fairy has been dropping a few items off here and there.

    I just needed a few items to make the stock I have on hand flesh out to the new design.

    Looks great! Remind us of the plans for the flooring in that echo chamber?

    I'm thinking gold shag.
    Please help support the Creek.


    During the middle ages they celebrated the end of the plague with wine and orgies. Does anyone know if there is anything planned when this one ends?

    Just concrete with rubber mats at "long-stand" locations. I have found in other shops that with the amount of machines and tables along with everything on the walls and hanging from the ceiling that the echo effect is a non-issue. However, this space is double anything I have had before so we shall see. It may be that one of my first projects will be a couple of bass traps to fly from the ceiling ;-)

    I was being somewhat tongue in cheek relative to the "echo chamber" comment. That said, I'm already missing the acoustic ceiling that I had in the old shop in my current gara...err....temporary shop. There's a noticeable higher level of noise. I'm already thinking about what I want to do when I put up my building relative to that. It's the mids to highs that bounce around, BTW...bass is non-directional which is why you can put a sub-woofer nearly anywhere in a room and not know where it's coming from.

    We have concrete. Dust shed and side door access.

    I was going to go with gravel for the access and side door landing area. I realized that with grand kids I would be sweeping gravel back into this area . . . forever. Bit the bullet and had it poured.

    I should be able to crank these out pretty quick.

    These are the Simpson anchors
    New Shop (299).jpg
    I'll use them something like so.
    New Shop (298).jpg . New Shop (297).jpg
    The 'horseshoe' looking affair is 1-1/2" x 28ga steel strapping that I will fabricate for my purpose. I plan for 3 or more pairs of anchor points per section.This is 50 times the capacity for the weight involved but, I need to factor in sequential failures. Losing a whole run of pipe due to a single anchor failure would be embarrassing. Where I can hit solid wood I will use lag screws.

    The plan calls for about 16 of these. I made 33. This will handle anywhere that I feel I need an extra bit of support. Also, they will be ready to go should I add or change a branch in the future.

    Looking good Glenn.

    FWIW I used some of these hangers for 4" piping where I had a drop coming down next to a wall. They were relatively inexpensive, adjustable, and can be easily removed if needed.

    Thanks Kris. Unfortunately the "factory" is already in full swing.
