The Green Machine

                  It's been an exciting week for New Earth Fabrication.

  Joseph and Rick took delivery of a 21,000 lb. press brake (aka brake press).

It arrived on a flatbed and was moved to the shop with a large crane. 

                           That was something to see! 

                    The machine has a lot of history, as you can see.

By sundown yesterday, they had made some adjustments and had it running to suit them. 

     They can now bend 10 foot pieces of metal into a myriad of shapes. 

     The possibilities are endless, and some pretty wonderful ones are being discussed.

 My Mom and Frank were on hand for the adventure.  Though they'll likely paint it, I thought it was pretty neat that it already matched the shop's paint color.
