I love big deliveries. It is almost like Christmas then a BIG truck back up the long driveway. My good neighbor Gord gets excited too for it is a chance for him to use his forklift. In this case we used both the BoCat (with the forks installed AND the forklift for those were heavy loads! The excitement today was for our order from Precision Board. There was a LOT of material - just under five and a half TONS in all. All of it was either 30 or 40 lb board which we use exclusively in our shop. I had asked for a variety of blocks to also be included - all fodder for the new four axis MultiCam. There's no way to get good unless you practice.
One of the pieces we will be building is a display piece for Coastal Enterprises. (Precision Board) It is not well known but they offer a custom gluing service. They will make up blocks of any size and shape.
So I put in my order for a custom made block that was somewhat irregular in shape and size. It arrived today with the rest of the order, glued up perfectly. It is HEAVY and measures 20" x 20" at the base and is 6' 5" tall.
I know one thing for sure... I will have to do a little practicing with the four axis setup before I build the file and push the GO button on this baby!
Even so I can hardly wait!!!
