Ahh, the problem with having a nice slab and roof, can easily bring machines in and fill up the space, without having the inside finished yet. I know that problem too well.

Heard back from Georgia Power. I'll have to stop by the local office and buy my meter base. Otherwise I'll only owe $1000 for my underground service to the shop. Engineer spec'd a 75kva pad mount transformer for me.

Heres the panels I plan to use.

Two Square D QO 200 amp main panels. These will supply everything and my sub panel in my living space and the phase converter.

Also got surge protectors.

The other two panels are my three phase panels. The phase converter will feed the 225 Amp Siemans panel. The small Square D might get used elsewhere if needed.

Moved my saw station down and worked on the middle wall section. This is where the big Monarch will sit.
Next to continue working upwards on this wall.

Very mich easier.

Today I put together 2x4 frames for the middle section of the wall. This time my framing is 36" on center. Did this to save money and it's just strictly to hold the insulation. The areas where it necjs down is to clear bolts holding the purlins to the rigid frames.

Kind of tricky setting into place by yourself and the fact it has to lift up past the up turned lip of the purlins below and then.be angled in and set down.

Trying to.come up with a plan for this so I can use the forklift for the lifting part.

Georgia Power wants 70k to bring me three phase.

400 amp single phase and I'll be getting either a 40 or 60 horse phase converter from American Rotary

Lathes are out of their old home and loaded up to make the first part of the journey to my shop.
