We got rid of the Motorman. The salesman tried real hard to give on a deal when we was buying more robots. But the company went with Fanuc. We had some board problems with the motorman. Silde in a few boards and fried them at a cost of $10-20,000 each was not a good thing. Their support for parts and tech was no where as good as Fanuc. When we did have trouble with Fanuc,most times we would get on the phone and we could figure it out without a service call. We cut out interior trunk parts with high water pressure.Than we set a few up for glueing.

Yeah our old motormans are actually kawasakis. Kawasaki bought out motorman and sold them for a few years as a Kawasaki. But it's a motorman, same robot new name ha.

Welcome Jaket, and beautiful old hardwood floors... What did you top them with after you sanded, and cleaned them down? Stain and poly? Or varnish? Or? (I'm gonna be laying down new hardwood, looking for ideas on finishing...) lol.
87 acres abandoned northern Maine farm and forest to reclaim. 20 acres in fields, 55 acre woodlot: maple, spruce, cedar and mixed. Deer, bear, moose, fox, mink, snowshoe and lynx. So far: a 1950 Fergie TO-20, hand tools, and a forge. (And a husband!)

I used a mahogany stain (1 light coat) and 3 good heavy coats of poly. Then sanded and buffed.
