    Those are Key Lock Rails, saving the cost of cutting. After setting the slab will naturally crack in straight lines at those joints.

    Looking good! Did you consider running DC ducting along with the power? Just checking your thoughts about wall/overhead ducting vs. floor ducts.

    Nope, ducting will be overhead. If it was a crawl space, I probably would run under, but not with a concrete slab.

    I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    That's a new one to me. I Googled "key lock rails", "key lock rails in concrete work" and came up with zilch for such an application. Do you have a reference or weblink to these gizmos? Thanks.

    Re: And so the new shop begins

    I'm enjoying following along for your build as I'm in planning mode for a future 30x40x10 and have many questions...

    Will you have 10ft high ceilings ?

    What type of insulation will you have in the walls & ceiling ?

    What type of heating & cooling are you going with & what size (tons, BTUs, etc...) ?

    What will be your lighting scheme ?

    Thanks in advance !

    Re: And so the new shop begins

    Looking good - and big! You might want to consider PVC pipe under slab for dust collection. I had the electrician just put in one outlet for me and the lighting circuit when I had my extra garage stall/shop built. I ran the other wiring around the room for the other outlets. I think I saved enough to pay for the upcharge to change out the panel to give me more spaces for breakers. I think they like to avoid the scheduling hassle of coming back for the finish.

    They are basically leave-in-place screed rails. While pouring, the screed rides on them to level the pour. Once set, they also form the expansion joints, eliminating the need to do saw cuts.

    I couldn't find Key Lock, but here is a similar product:
