Ok back at it... bolted a board down to protect the table.

Back down or up goes the ramp. ( Jetti Master voice: There is no Mess.)

Oh man that was a job came up short on it and had to mussel it up the last few inches to the top. Can we all say Ug.

Used some wood blocking and the spindle the gain the needed height to bolt up. Used the table the inch the head in while lining up the bolts.

DONE!!!

Still need to wire it in and fill it up with oil and tram it... but I'm happy it's up and in one peice... soon to be working.
I know many will say engine crane... but that's 228lb to drag home and the have to store it when done. I have enough thing to trip over. Plus that's monies that can go into more needed thing... like a rotary table haha. Funny how everyone disappears when you need help with a project like this. But for the price I can't complain... work smarter not harder was followed here to the most part. Just took some time to GETTER DUNN.

Nah,you don't really need a cherry picker,it just makes things easier sometimes.Besides,any move where nothing is broken or bleeding is a good move:D

So,I have to ask,what's the first project going to be?

No blood or broken anything but sore. After getting a price of $2.50 per slot :eek:... the first thing to be made are brackets for this fence that I'm building for our local cemetery.

Nice! I get to build some fences and railings now and again.Once did a fence that had 350 pieces of 1/2x1/2 twisted hotrolled pickets,that job got old.

Did you do the burnouts too?

wierdscience... I ended up having the birds laser cut. But still had 2484 holes... 828 picket... 432 cut outs 5436 welds lot of work involved with that fence. But it matches the old 19th century fence around the old part.

Well I got a start on the brackets... 5/16" x 1" full cut single pass... will saw and bevel to fit inside the channel. Not a sexy first project but fills the bill. Man I like this mill. Will have much fun with this. :D
