Some of the parts presumably are set into that concrete.

Bingo.

That is what I believe came on the last shipment I had seen, HOWEVER. I am thinking what I found in early OCT was actually Model Y press upgrades.

Concrete takes 28 days to cure to maximum strength.
December 15th through Christmas is likely installation date.
For their first giga presses they poured concrete and began installing the presses a week or two later.

Have you watched the old videos of the first gigapress installation? They mount onto the floor but there may be bolts set in the foundation. I’ll have to go back to Jeff’s old videos to be sure.

Makes sense. They don’t need to concrete to be at max strength when it’s getting installed, it’s built to take dynamic loads.

It had most of it’s strength after a week, and after 2 weeks it’s pretty solid. So that corresponds even closer with a projected delivery date in the next week or so. We probably won’t see castings until near year end because it takes time to assemble.

When I’m working on it at home I usually put a load on it after 24 hours ;)
