Beaterblog Garage - CMM Installation Ridiculousness

Friend of Beaterblog and gracious lessee of garage space Karl has purchased this ridiculously massive CMM (coordinate measuring machine) at auction in Detroit for about 1/10th of its scrap value. Luckily, it's perfect for creating point clouds for the complete re-creation of Simca 1204s, if all goes to my glorious plan....

To move this 15,000lb. piece of precision, it took the coordinated efforts of two 8,000lb capacity fork lifts and about 30 feet of chain.

When in place and set up, it will be run with the latest in Window's 3.1 technology with designs fed to the CNC on the other side of the wall.
