I'm ruined at this point.

My inner needle no longer moves. I've been waiting for so long I'm numb.

I've been teased to boredom. I'm ready for a killer set of spy shots of the truck in motion, or some kind of official announcement. And, by "announcement" I don't mean a wish-tweet that may or may not happen.

I've been anxious for so long that I no longer feel anxious, even though I think about the CT daily. It's weird.

@Crissa posted a slightly different photo on another thread which shows a different angle. While the reflections obscure it, it’s pretty clearly the same ladder with the two big Gigapress plates visible. In the top photo, they are under a tarp.

Nice little confirmation shot. Just in case the top shots weren’t clear enough!

If we were to say that this was the last machine needed to start production, when would it begin? 4-5 months?

It’s hard to say. Once it starts producing castings, it seems like it takes a little while to dial it in, but not that long. If things go to plan, under 6 months seems reasonable.

I’m more concerned with 4680 production at this time myself. We still haven’t seen any signs of 4680 manufacturing coming out of Texas and the cathode factory is not completed yet.

How do we know those red things are the red things from the press again? I see what looks like a fire extinguisher to the right of them. If so don’t they seem much smaller than the press parts?

It's from a couple days before. It wasn't there in the previous shot by Joe, two days before that.

These things are made out of many pieces. Some need to be covered, others don't.
