The bro-in-law sent me this and it is so amazing I had to share.

Look at all the photos.

Edgar (K.B.) Montrose and I would have taken this down, with the proper charge, in an hour.

WOW! :blink: I never seen anything like that being remove like that before. Usually they just drop it. I bet due to no clear drop path.

I got to watch a much smaller stack being built at Legends shopping center while I was installing a couple of escaltors there. It is 140 feet high and it was amazing to watch those brick layers build that thing, they built maybe four to six feet a day and was amazed at how symetrical they could keep the shape.

I would actually take that job way sooner than I'd take on some of the hillside work Mike Newman over on the construction page does. At least this machine has a crane holding him up as well as a silo to stabilize him. On those hills Mike goes on, there's nothing but air between you and the bottom of the ravine. That, and the occassional rock crushing the rops in on you.

Refueling and greasing would be a bit tricky.

Does that qualify as "hazard" pay??

Somebody ought to tell them about this invention called Dynomite. There doesn't look like anything in the way near the base of that stack that would prevent using explosives. That method there looks dumber than H_LL. If perchance that stack would decide to collapse while being chiseled on, it could take that crane out with it. Goodbye crane operator(s), and also the guy up on top.. I'd tell them to stick that idea up there a_s if I were to be one the intended crane operator(s).

Where was OSHA* on that one?

Those escalators were installed using only 79 percent of the bid installatiion time, as most all of my jobs are.

As if I owe you any explanations or apolgogies. Don't recall your name being the one signed at the bottom of my paycheck.

Also gets back to safety. That stack was going up right beside my project, these escalators are outside units. One had damned well BETTER be aware of what is going on with the other trades in the REAL construction world or he may not get to go home that evening.
