Neat. A factory rebuilt Hagenscheidt wheel truing machine was installed in the new shop of the Minneapolis light rail system. Using dimensions furnished by the manufacturer a very complex pit was constructed, and when the machine arrived from Germany, it dropped into the perfectly fitting pit. It was amazing as nobody had actually seen the machine prior to it arriving. Great machine too, an older heavier Hagenscheidt. It will probably outlast the shop!
Love those you tube videos, they are especially popular now when we're all locked in.
