Weed, California, January 27, 2008 — In November the Bloggard moved into new property in the historic logging town of Weed, California, and we began moving the Mobius Megatar company into the new shop building.
After setting up the spraybooth, we tested and got it working, then got the place painted, and moved the office and essential computers. All OK?
In December, disassembling the computer-controlled cutting machinery — 800 pounds! — this was a good opportunity to upgrade some electronics — and the two hired guys flaked out on moving day, so Patrick (shop foreman) and Bloggard moved it … very, very carefully. After reassembly, with the upgraded electronics it runs faster and better. [Make Tim Allen Tool Time ape noises here.]
In January, we hired a truck and two burly fellows, and ‘Everything Must Go!’ by golly! Everything moved. Now all the essential systems are re-assembled, and Weed, California is the world headquarters for Mobius Megatar.
