I had to break off regular work this afternoon because long time customer of ours was moving this week and this necessitated a special request. His polar bear needed to make the three block move as well. But exactly how do you lift and move a giant polar bear, complete with an ice burg stand. The answer is simple. We had built a lifting point into his back. I simply had to use a chaser die to clean out the rusty threads, insert a new lifting eye bolt and then hook up the chain.
Anytime we move one of our creations it is like an instant parade. Traffic stops, people gawk and wave, with giant smile on their faces. Today was no exception.
The move went off without a hitch, thanks to a smooth crane operator. I'll be carving up a new calved ice burg on the front to hold the new address and the owner will be adding some nice landscaping around the base.
Tomorrow we'll get back to our regular schedule and job.
