Before moving such a massive piece of equipment, lots of theodolite readings should be taken (if they are not already known). After the move, the theodolite readings should be taken, again. The differences in the two sets give one a chance of figuring out what's going on! (Yeah, I know that I'm the dumb ole--and old--engineer you had in mind!)

Unfortunately there tends to be a syndrom, amongst some engineers, that they don't listen to what the operators tell them, or don't take suggestions seriously.

When I was a growth technician, engineers that hadn't been there 2 days acted like growers that had been there 10 years had no clue as to what they were talking about.

I KNOW that the engineer in our family wasn't like that - I just wish more were that way!
