    It would be perfect for a fab shop, we wouldn't have to use an iron worker as weight when straightening beams

    in Toronto Ontario - where are you?

      Hah, I remember going to a fab shop to lookat a lathe, north shore in Vancouver.
      they were building a pir of beams, similar to that , 150 or 200 feet long.. ..... the longest drawings i have ever seen.. the guy said a mile of weld in each one..
      they were the ramp, for I think a smelter build or refit up north, had to be long enough for ship to shore, and adjust for the tide to be useablr 24 hrs per day..
