    Thumbs up Machines are now downstairs!

    Well actually the mill has been down for about a month already. I lost some time due to the sudden and unexpected death of my 42yr old brother
    I got the lathe parts all down on monday and it took about 90min to put everything back together. I needed help bring the main mill column and the lathe cabinet down--everything else I could get by myself including the lathe bed. No, I'm not superman, but it is sort of amazing what one man with a hand truck, furniture dolly, and cherry picker can do. Anyway here are some pics. As usual, they are before and after (to busy to get any during).

    Couple more pics of the machines in their new home. The mill isn't quite as cramped as it looks--but it's close

    Sorry to hear about your brother.

    As far as the new shop you need to fill it in a bit more. There is far too much walking room

    Nice job on getting it downstairs unhurt. I dropped my mill and that was just moving it 40 feet.

    Both machines look nice in their new home. After you get them all setup you really need to make a few chips!

    Good Work

    Sorry to hear about your brother also. That's way too young to go.

    Your basement looks like a great working space. I think I have a color brochure for several Rockwells. If you'd like a copy, send me a PM and I'll scan it for you.

    That nice setup you got in the basement should help keep you busy.
