I thought some of you would enjoy this. We set up a new ride and got it running in 3 (12 to 14 hour) days. The only injury was a splinter I got from not having my gloves on! 960,000 lbs of steel made and built in the USA.
For some reason I cant post all of the pictures. More to come.
The last pick of the top of the loop weighed 24000 lbs and was made with a 400 ton crane that had to reach out 154 feet to make the lift.
I should proof read. It is 96,000 lbs of steel made and built in the USA.
Yeah, Paul, that's pretty cool, but can it rattle down the road at 24-MPH, dribbling oil all along the route, then refuse to start to take you back home?
I think not!
Hehe. What that does is enable me to be able to afford to rattle down the road at 24-MPH, dribbling oil all along the route, then refuse to start to take me back home!
Paul: Not everyone has bigger toys at work to play all day. Great !
I made a choice 20 some years ago and left the rat race of manufacturing and have been playing with toy's big and small ever since. If I ever grow up I think I will be a professional young boy. The kind of young boy that wants to know how every thing works and be able to fix it!
Is that at Elich (sp) park.
I love the part about "Made in USA"!
Really neat Paul, you do good work!
Elitch Gardens is the park I work in. We have 47 rides that we inspect and sign off each operating day. and attractions. In the second picture you can see the Denver Broncos stadium. My office is straight across the highway from the stadium.
Do they still have anything at there old location, I left there before they started to build the new area. Do you know Dan Robitalli
or his brother they were heavy into T and A when I lived there.
Paul,Just remember to use your spud wrench and not your finger!!Bud in Wheeler.
