Shipping Limitations

Many times shipping to our facilities can be a problem in itself, that is where the portable machine shop comes into play. Many times parts are to big and can't be shipped or taken apart. There are two case histories on the right showing a crane and a boiler tank which the customers did not want to ship due to additional costs. Due to the size of these objects, shipping would have been irrational and illogical. The crane job consisted of a crane house center pin in which we had to rough machine to remove wear, weld buildup by procedure and re-machine to OEM Specs., The Boiler tank had a bad flange face in which we had to remove imperfections and then give the flange a phonographic finish.
