    ALSO! Make sure to keep a warm blanket in the truck as well! You don't think about it until your heat conks out in the middle of nowhere! Also nice if you get stuck and can't run the heat for safety reasons, (like, possible death from carbon monoxide poisoning)

    What goofball sold you a garden spade to use in a winter weather car kit? The first time you need to use it for moving snow around you will curse them! Put the spade in your garden shed and get yourself a small snow shovel that will enable you to move a decent volume of snow.

    That concrete thickness might be alright for a walking pathway. But an industrial shed? WTF where they thinking?

  • StefanRG1
    StefanRG1 22 days ago

    the slab is only there to provide support for live loads that may be out and about but for things like where the posts land there will be a thickening (footing) underneath to provide support. The people that made that building did not account for any dead loads like your machinery which is why you need to thicken it where they are placed. good on you for doing it dough most people don't really give a dam and just damage the foundation with dead loads without proper support. If the building has compact fill underneath you need to make sure to dig a bit deeper and re compact the ground so you don't see your new slab slowly sink over time

    When he was flipping the piece of slab over i thought that if he's not careful the pipework on the wall would be damaged. Also, when i saw the bobcat in the hole wondered if it would tear up the edge of the cut concrete driving in and out. Yup to both. Everyone he's employed so far has caused further problems so moving to the states has clearly not improved the level of workmanship, as we're led to believe in the UK.

      +Timothy S. Thanks for the thorough explanation! Started watching his videos and quickly realized what the power hammer was and that you'd definitely need a solid foundation for that haha

    • Timothy S.
      Timothy S. Month ago

      He has a large power hammer that he plans to use for his blacksmithing, due to the size and weight of the hammer it needs to be on a slab of minimum 6 inches. The current slab in his shop is just under 4 inches, with it being this thin he can not safely mount and use the hammer without risking cracking and breaking the slab so he cut out a section and had a 24 inch deep slab poured for him to mount his power equipment to.
