    Today I will be moving my warehouse location to a much more convenient and user friendly flex space.This new space is just 1.5 miles from my home and in the office park I was located at from 2005-2013.

    It has been a two year effort to shrink the inventory to a more reasonable footprint as well as wait through numerous construction delays for the new section of suites to be completed but once I get through moving and set up it should be well worth it.
    I will be doing this move primarily solo as usual with a little help from my wife and hopefully the oldest son.
    Will update as it unfolds .

    Good luck Chris! I'd help if I was closer

    #3 2 years ago

    I'm sure Keith would have helped. You should have said first 5 people to come help gets a free clearcoat

    Good luck with the move.

    How long is the move going to take?

    #16 2 years ago

    how many of those projects are yours and how many are paying restores?

    #17 2 years ago

    ...or do we need to go to the Ask Beezelboob Thread for answers?

    #18 2 years ago
    Quoted from spfxted:

    How long is the move going to take?

    The bulk should be done today I hope.

    #20 2 years ago

    Wow! I'm surprised there's carpet on the floor. Yea, easier on the feet but all those little bits of everything/anything that must fall on the floor.

    Good luck on your move.

    That looks like office carpeting with minimal pile.

    Good luck on the move, take care of your back!

    Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

    That looks like office carpeting with minimal pile.

    Even with that: sawdust, barbs on bits of solder, little curls of metal, rust flakes, glass shards... all would catch.

    I'd want one of those polished, acid washed epoxy floors that I can run a broom/mop over.

    I would like to take a moment to hijack this thread and tell a quick story about Chris from HEP. Many moons ago (mid 2000's) there wasn't alot of reproduction playfields available, and I had attempted a restore on a FH by sanding a horribly worn field down and applying the FH overlay that was available at the time. (anyone remember the FH overlay days?) This was before the FH reproduction fields were finally made, so there wasnt alot of options. Needless to say the overlay wasnt that great, it started wrinkling around star posts etc. (maybe it was my poor install, but whatever). Now, this was also the time that PFR (playfield renovations) was in business touching up playfields. So I had the idea of acquiring a used FH playfield, and sending it off to PFR to get touched up, to replace the overlay job I did. After keeping an eye on Ebay and the newsgroup for a used FH playfield and coming up empty, I shot Chris at HEP an email to see if he happened to have a worn but restoreable field I could buy off him to send to PFR. I figured he had already done a few restores on them at this point, so what the hell, worth a shot to ask. Well, not only did he have an extra used FH playfield, he sent it to me for nothing. NOTHING. It was an incredibly nice gesture that I still think about to this day when I have an opportunity to pay it forward to someone. So, around 10 years later, let me say thank you again Chris, It was much appreciated. I still consider myself to owe you one.

    As a side note to this story, I sent the FH playfield that Chris gave me out to PFR, along with a $300 deposit...and never got the playfield back...or my $300. After waiting about 6 years, I purchased a reproduction playfield that eventually went into the game. So if you think about it, the nice gesture of Chris giving me a used playfield was cancelled out by PFR basically stealing it from me...and $300. Life is funny.

    Best of luck with your move Chris!

    "Sector" one cleared? Around these parts, we'd just say, "that fucking space over there" cleared.

    Around here it usually means the wife is safe for at least 24 hours.

    Packing my cooler.I already parked the big truck at the new shop back door only took 10 minutes to jog home(1.5 miles).. Ready to start unloading so I will head back over there and nurse a couple beers during the process the wife will be my chauffeur for the rest of the evening.

    Going with these porters seems appropriate.
