Hobby Lobby

Post by Guest on Tue 26 Apr 2016 - 9:43

Just won a bid on a Hobby Lobby. Kinda scared now. Didn't think I would get it. I  have around 2000 hours in it and not enough people to do that and the rest of my shit. 
I might have to get off my fat ass this summer. Pretty much an all labor type of job as they supply pretty much everything but pipe and wire.

Hobby lobby will be a shit load of lights. Get comfortable on that scissor lift. You'll be there a while! Good luck though. Sounds interesting.

Yea I have two scissors lifts now but I figure I might by one more and then keep the best two when we are done. 
It is only a 3 to 4 month job so I may be getting some Summer college kids to help.

I think you need to bring in a couple of decent union guys that are on the list. They have more experience with this type of thing (retail fit-outs) and if you get some good guys they will streamline it for you.

Then find smart guys who will take care of it for you. And yes, it will cost you money.

A couple of guys who have the systems and processes down will make a huge difference.

So far I have taken 4 grand worth of scrap wire in. Not to mention pulling out thousands of feet of 4 thhn which is in perfect shape. Plus all the 500mcm I took out from the old service should work fine on the new one. 
Nice little bonus.

Well, this is great news Jackwad. However the really really big news is I have invented the AC disconnecting means that you can feed from the top with a slight bit of machackery that costs only 6 bucks at home dopo (plus whatever they charged me for 3/4'' myers hubs, probably another 6 bucks for that... I gots pictures coming shortly after I drag them off my iPod and transfer them to ET and then transfer that to here , all because of the shithead way this shithole handles pictures.

I don't understand the use of a Meyers hub. Why not just install that same PVC connecter (male adapter, whatever) into the box with a sealing locknut? Silicone the connector and it's good.

What's the difference screwing the connector into the Meyers hub?
