Agree. That's a lot of crates with the same logo... the blue topped ones look very similar to previous idra crates. The difference is a different logo....There are between 38 to 42ish crates around. I choose to will it to be the IDRA press. I lose nothing being wrong, and we all gain if Ogre is correct.
I did the same thing but I don't think it looks like IDRA. I am attaching a screen grab from Jeff's video on January 21st of this year as a comparison. There is a clear difference.The crates sitting in the foreground say IdRA on them.... it might be something else but looks like IdRA
Yes, we all agree I am sure that it would be great if it were a CT gigapress, and if we could collectively 'will' it to be so we would, but logic dictates that we separate reality from fantasy, at least when it stares us in the face.Agree.

This is my thinking too.Good things happen in big boxes....I am trying to think of just one vehicle with more attributes at the pricing promised....This is a big deal purchase everyone should hang in for the long run....except folks in front of me in line of course : -)
Stamping press?The stamping press to make CT body panels will also be a monster machine.
The original stamping machines were larger than this. Go back and review videos from 2020 and you can see them being delivered.This is my thinking too.
Maybe it’s not the Gigapress. It’s big. Maybe the biggest thing which has arrived at Tera Texas?
Most of the major Model Y/ 3 production equipment is in place already. Thus it is likely to be for either the Cybertruck or battery production. Either of which is good news for the Cybertruck.
The SS may very well arrive at the factory rolled and ready to go. I think the whole point of the SS factory nearby was to get the SS in the alloy and hardness they need for manufacture.Stamping press?
CT sheetmetal may require machines to take SS from rolls and then run them through rollers to flatten and work harden, a machine to cut pieces into different shapes (before rolling/hardening?) and I suspect there will be welding of some type (friction welding?). This will discolor the SS so there may be final steps to restore the cosmetic finish.
11 ga. (0.125 inch/3.175mm) in a half hard condition is too tough for a stamping press.
I counted 74 round rubber thingys on the ground, hate to have to rotate and balance those puppies before lunch, I'd probably just turn it around bass ackwards and call it good.Cool. I have to make the drive through Austin and by the Tesla factory twice this week for Turkey Day activities. Hopefully, there are no more massive 18 wheelers... err 40 wheelers on the road then.
