Good progress for a Sunday. Starting to think about how I will move things around to get the lathes in here and starting to move stuff for that. Also a few more tool additions.

Tried an experiment to save material cost. In the end I decided I need blocking behind the tin for mounting conduit and outlet boxes.

Blocking not attached yet but you get the idea.

Been making a lot of progress.

Installed 1x4s above where the lathes will go. This makes running conduit for lights and power easier. Just decided to start above where the lathes will be. Don't really want to move them. Also doubble as support for R30 insulation in the future.

As far as interior coverings..
Id like to go all the way around the shop from the floor to the first wall purlin with the tin I've been putting up. Eventually.

Ran conduit down the wall behind where the Monarch will sit. The box with tge conduit running straight up will be the three phase to run the lathe. I'm hoping a twist lock three phase plug of the proper rating will work for a means of disconnect. That offset bend was in some conduit i got from a friend and it's just right. Goimg to use it as a pattern for a few more bends I need just like it.

I need to build a level platform in front of my shop door to set the lathes on with a crane and then roll them into the shop on pipes. Both lathes are already on 6x6 and 8x8 timbers.

The unistrut is there to illustrate what im thinking of doing.

Using two I beams with the top flage level with the concrete of the shop. Supported with wood blocking and at the far end with railroad timbers. Two inch black iron pipe for rollers.

Looking real good. The pipe makes it pretty simple to move heavy stuff.

I'm wondering why you didn't pour a landing/driveway outside the doors yet. I'm seeing some unused mesh there in the background...

Put the outer end a little on the high side. If it settles you’re still level. If it doesn’t, things roll easier downhill!

Lots of the shops that deal with tracked equipment either have I beams embedded in the concrete, or steel plating over the concrete for flooring. Steel tracks and concrete don’t play well together.

Even in industrial shops a twistlock can be used as a disconnect for safety reasons, as it can be locked out. However, using a breaker to kill the power to it is a no-no, as breakers are for over current protection, not disconnects. So you still need a disconnect before the twistlock to kill the power, as the twistlocks aren’t supposed to have power when you plug/unplug them.
