I finished 2 more pedestals for the metalshop. This will allow us to adapt multiple pieces of equipment that can be mounted, and switched out when needed. Thanks to Jeff Eck for supplying the Brake drums.


Those are nice !


There is a regular/water trap on the hose reel above the powder coating cabinet so the small compressor is I longer needed. Plug the hose reel into the blue line hanging down on the wall.

Also I’ve cut and powder coated a ‘hot’ sign for while the oven is in use.


Awesome work Devin. Thanks for helping out.
