CNC Plasma and Bending

Utilizing the CNC plasma cutting table to provide relief cuts in plate allows for fast, easy, accurate bending. Once the bend has been accomplished, welding the relief cuts will strengthen the piece. Below are a few pictures of cradles for wooden beams that will have a steel column under them.        ...

Sign Framework

Having good work relationships with other local companies is what makes the world go round. Recently I made a second sign frame for Roberge Signs who is just down the street from my shop. Luckily the sign is not that heavy which allowed us to use thinner then normal stock to achieve the curve. This product is complete and now at powder-coating to be powder painted satin black. This is the housing development metal & granite sign sketch from the customer with dimensions and material call out. I am doing the metal part.     Here is the product on the layout bench used to make sure everything is flat and held in place while being built    ...

Lake Sunapee Structural Steel Install

I’m very lucky to get to work with some of the greatest contractors of the Lake Sunapee Region. I was most recently hired to assist with the install of structural I-beams which will support a second story garage space as well as large areas of the addition. This job is far from complete and is going to require me to put down metal composite decking for concrete to rest on, over thirty custom steel columns, custom rafter brackets and a few more structural I-beams as the carpenters get to the next level. Hopefully as the project progresses I will also get a chance to provide some ornamental hand railings which in my mind are more rewarding and visible to everyone who visits.      ...

Install of Exterior Work Platform Stairway

Install of Exterior Work Platform Stairway

Last week I delivered and installed an exterior work platform stairway for a new customer. I pre-assembled all of the landings and stair section in the shop, loaded on my trailer for delivery and installed using a subcontracted boom crane. The pieces went together flawlessly, not having to adjust one piece! The anxiety of a project fitting properly keeps me up at night yet they typically go together just fine. This customer was extremely impressed with the whole process but especially pleased with how quick, easy and accurately it all took shape. They asked me to measure for the next set of guardrails before I was even finished!      ...

Loading Stair Structure for Install

Some days there is is more time spent preparing for a job in the shop then it will actually take to do the job. In these pictures you will see I have pre-assembled many different components to a stair structure in the shop in hopes of reducing time on site during install. By doing this I am able to make sure everything fits properly. If changes are necessary it is much easier to rectify in the shop versus outside using tools from my mobile welding truck.       Next>> Stair Structure...

I am cutting out the old wear plates and welding in new AR 500 plate, 1/2” thick! There are many other components to this project that I will share later. Before Before Ready for...

As robotics become more involved in manufacturing and warehouse organization, I see an increase in the demand for the fabrication of the bases in which the robots mount to. Since Merrimack County Customs was created in 2012 I have created bases for electronic cigarette manufacturing, mounting frames for robotic semi truck loading and unloading, and everything in...

Part Prepariation of a Rail Gear Assembly

I have always found that proper, clean part cutting and preparation ahead of fabrication is a much more efficient way of building something versus cutting the parts as you go. By working from a comprehensive set of drawings I am able to cut and prep my parts ahead of time. 3D drawing of a rail gear assembly Horizontal band saw cutting of 1” thick by 8” mild...
