July 1, 2006: High reach hammers in Singapore

This morning I woke up and thought I was dreaming. The sound of an hydraulic hammer in the background - must be Jackie or Michael or Roy or Ryan or Adam or Steve or Leon or Ponch hammering outside our apartment. I looking out the window and what I saw gave new meaning to High Reach and Michael's 1250. The worksite

The worksite (a roof)

No Testa machines in site - but here is the hammer, the water man and the supervisors with their yellow hard hats - but no orange t-shirts anywhere

And here is the guy sparying the hammer site - just like last August with the Testa team at the US-17 overpass at I-26

Michael's hammer

and the worksite - only this is Singapore - and another demo project
