Most of your larger punch presses are indeed final assembled on-site. Sometimes the base for the press would be set 5-10 feet or more deep into the concrete. I understand really big presses are sometimes set in a pad that sets on bedrock.

I used to work with Minster Piece-Maker punch presses. 100 ton and 150 ton presses, we'd run at about 150-200 strokes per minute. We/they had a 300 ton Niagara press that ran at about 40 strokes per minute most of the time, unless we were running particularly thin material.

How does your head feel after a shift of that?

Normal, believe it or not. The vibrations and bumping that you feel (and then get accustomed to) in your feet make you feel a little weird for a few minutes after the presses stop, though.

The 100-150 ton press noises didn't make it, but when that 300 ton Niagara press was thumping, you could hear/feel it at the front door, and it was as far from the door as you could get and still be inside the plant.

It's amazing what the human body and it's systems can get used to.

They're still building their band saw.

It's a big one.

Are they building it out of wood, using mostly scrap lumber?

From 1965 to 1982, the NYFD had the most powerful pumper in the world.
It could hook to eight hydrants, or 12 in supply, and pump 10,000 gpm at low pressure and 8,800 gpm at 350 PSI.
The tender has an 8 inch cannon that could move 10,000 gpm up to 600 ft.
Three satellite tenders had smaller cannons.

The whole story here.

600 feet sounds impressive until you look up the height of the world trade center and realize it could barely reach a third of the way up.
