    Forking Forklift Questions

    We went with an Aerican Made Crown FC 5000lb electric forklift, lugged cushion tire. I was going propane but the electric just seemed better to us after a demo. with electric your turn radius is smaller because one wheel can counter rotate. we went with the small battery and it last us 2 weeks between charges. we charge at night while it isn't needed. Did i mention it is faster and smoother than propane. after having the forklift for a year the only thing I don't like is that the lugged tires bring gravel back inside. Should have went with the smooth non-marking option. https://www.crown.com/en-us/forklifts/fc-sit-down-counterbalanced-truck.html

    Cleaning columns and bubble plates

    be careful on the cleaning agent. Acids can and will eat your copper, so neutralize or use a base cleaner like pbw. we clean our column 2-4 times per year.

    work boots that hold up

    6 months and I generally get new shoes because the sole is wore out and lost support, but the shoe may have plenty of tread left. with boots you work in 1 year max. some wear and how long shoes last depends on how you walk and your weight. The blow out you described is from walking on the outside edge or the strings rotted. mink oil can help prevent string rot but I am sure your feet get wet often. I don't like steel toe boots for various reasons, get the reinforced toe.

    yes but heat often brings out desirable flavors. So it would definitely be different or unique.

    Vacuum stills are only useful in specific applications, such as rum made from blackstrap molasses
