Over the past few days, Crane America has been installing our new hoist at the shop. We've been eagerly awaiting its arrival to speed up production and make our lives a little easier. Up to this point, we've used our fork lift to do the bulk of the lifting, but it's tedious and time consuming, especially when it comes to moving individual tools.
We've did our best to stay out of the crane installers way, but naturally I couldn't resist taking a few pics once the smoke and sparks started flying. When you freeze industrial welding down to 400/sec. it's pretty damn cool.
