Today we feature some of the team from Western Mechanical who made it happen this week. At the upper left, we see four of Western Mechanicals finest ... from left ot right, technicians Joe and Matt, lift boss Nick and project engineer Rob. In the centre photo above, Nick checks underneath as the turntable touches down on the rails. In the photo at the right above, the sheer size of the job becomes apparent in this shot as Rob checks the centre bearing. At 120 feet long and 340,000 lbs in weight, we believe this will be the largest working compressed-air-motor driven turntable in existence today.
