Dude, nice work!!! Love the overhead crane setup.

I've never seen metal joists like that. Care to share details on them?

It is just a small I beam on 50x50x5mm box steel posts. We are going to run a trolley in the beam. The construction should be able to carry 1000 kg but we won't exeed 250kg. Most of the loads are less than 100 kg. I was surprised how torsion sensitive the I beam was, during construction of the frame I had to turn it over. So we braced the construction on the top to the roof of the building to prevent any movement under load, it is very solid now.
I will take a few detail pics later.

Worked on air and electrical systems.

All air outlets are curved up, on the right you see a tap off point going down.

Part of the tubing was already there for heating. Took it apart and created a ring line. Then completed it to a full ring with outlets, feed and tap off point. It is rated to 10 bar. You just need professional equipment to lock the pieces together.

I really need to plumb my new shop for air; it's one of the (many?) things that slipped my mind. Unfortunately, it's going to have to wait for a while now, since it's the storage space for our move currently.
