Fine tuning the turntable operation!

Click on each picture for a closer look!
On December 22nd, two technicians from Western Mechanical mixed cement grout and packed it in under the turntable pivot base to provide the permanent support. That's Nick mixing and Rob working in the confined space below the turntable centre. Last Friday, December 28th, Rob and I took the table for a test spin and timed it at approximately one minute, forty-five seconds for a 180 degree rotation.
