For these hurry up and wait patiently jobs, I like to hang out in the control room so you know exactly what progress is being made to getting the machine started, takes away the left in the dark feeling.
Then, when started and where practical wait for the machine to get up to operating temp for final measurements.

It's quite telling that we can only debate the best place to wait.[wink]

I'll have to say, control rooms have advantages in that they are usually air conditioned and might have a place to sit.

As with most vibrations things it depends on the machine. We have some machines that are pushing hot fluids (boiler feedwater/HRSG air etc.) that I want to reach stable operating temperatures before recording data as we never do hot alignments.
