getting the shop ready....

Maybe you know and maybe you don't know, but theres going to be some cameras running around MLS soon doing some filming for a pilot tv show....

So its time to make the shop look pretty...

I built my idea of a " Prototyper Material Rack " to look ultra cool on camera and just overall speed up building times in the shop.

think it turned out pretty good :)

 I am happy

Its all made out of 1.5" square mild steel tubing
to fit those kick ass milk crates



A story told by a master gunsmith machinist I worked with - 
"Every time a calipers was damaged in this aerospace shop I worked at, it was considered no good so they threw them at the wall covered in " bad " calipers... 
One day the owner was so pissed off he grabbed the good caliper off the bench and threw it so hard it went thru the dry wall and into the next door tendent's shop...

 Is it true? 
Who knows-
So I tried, and it was far from going thru the wall.......
Myth busted !
