Gigapress parts usually get delivered on flatbed trailers but you never know!
We’ve never seen a 9k Ton press delivered.

So we really don’t know. We still don’t!

Last time they stacked them all neatly and got them in one big shipment. This time it seems like they got them over a few days with more than a week before the first showed up and the last big ones arrived.

That is true, but everything we have ‘seen’ delivered for the 9K ton gigapress has arrived on a flatbed trailer. I’m just saying …

I’m not saying there are 2 gigapresses being received…

But there are a lot of absolutely massive IDRA boxes floating around spread over a lot of days.

He said it was too foggy to fly but we have the image @greggertruck posted as evidence of the assembly taking place. Maybe Joe will fly early on Friday…

You are proving my point sir. A bunch of crates on the ground and one on a flatbed trailer. What was shown yesterday was a regular semi trailer.
Yesterday it was an intermodal container on a semi. Almost exactly like the the intermodals in the photo from the 6k press. Intermodal containers are just crates with wheels attached. In one of his shots they are on the truck, in the other, off the truck.

I doubt the dark blue covered containers were IDRA as they always label theirs. Why are we even discussing this? It is clear that there are IDRA parts arriving and the press is being assembled and that is great news.

That's not texas, where I showed it being built. Thats from Italy. Sorry! However, I am completely positive it's in progress.
