  • Getting ready for the big move

    The rental place tried to give me a standard tandem axle trailer with no lift or tilt function. Luckily they had a 6x10 drop lift trailer they gave to me for the same price.

    Bought 150$ worth of straps from rural King

    And the 4x6 pallet assembled to Brian's directions.

    Does anyone know the footprint of a KO Lee S718 surface grinder, and what's involved with removing the table? Can one lift the table by hand or should I bring my engine hoist? Does the base have screw holes?

      Nice trailer!

      Will those flat strap ends fit the anchors on the trailer? Is there room in each anchor for multiple straps to attach? Some trailer anchors are pretty small.

      I have always bought the style, figuring they are more versatile. They can also be connected together, where I don't think the flat style can?

      Also, if you ever use an enclosed truck with e-track, I don't think the wide style will be able to use the adapters.

            Rented a Uhaul F150 xl today, I think the Prius needs to go, I need a nice pickup truck in my life. Would make doing this sort of thing much easier and cheaper.

                The foot print is 23" wide x 21" front to back. Approx weight is 1100 Lbs.

                The table lifts off, nothing holding it down. If it has the hydraulic feed on the table make sure to unscrew the knob on the right side of the table and push the cylinder rod back a couple inches. If you try to lift the table with the rod connected...... well, you know what is going to happen.

                The base has a hole in each corner inside. Great for bolting down to a pallet.

                The table is quite heavy even with out the chuck mounted.
                I would remove it with an engine hoist or chain fall if you can so you don't ding up the ways.

                  I allways take a assortment of Lagbolts and some short 2x6 with a lot of screws to rest tight to whatever machine your hauling and put lots of screws into the pallet.

                    5/8 bolts? 1/2" bolts? If I make hook welded to a plate, is that magnet strong enough to lift the table? On second thought, don't want to risk it... Thank you for the dimensions, and other information.

                    I have an assortment of 5/8 Iag bolts for the 10EE, but I need to still prepare for the surface grinder.
                    What's the minimum pallet size or spacing for pallet jack forks?

                      pallets are around 4-ft square, the forks will be between 3 ft and 4 ft spread.

                        I believe my Dayton is typical. You will want 48" long forks, which is standard.

                        Harbor Freight sells them. Don't know how good they are. I could not find any plastic on my Dayton (except on the front wheels). I also saw them for sale at Menards recently, similar price to HF but no 20% coupons. I saw a pretty decent looking one for $159 at a store in Cali, via google shopping. It took me quite a while to find a really good deal on a used one ($25 with minor repair needed to ball and spring detent).

                        Some places charge too much for pallet jack rental. I'd rather buy a good used one then a junky new one.

                        MAX FORK WIDTH: 27"
                        BETWEEN FORKS: 14 3/8"
                        FORK LENGTH: 48"
                        Fork ht lowered 3"
                        Fork ht raised 7.75"

                        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pallet_jack

                        Typical:

                        The dimension between the outer edges of the forks: Available as 20ΒΌ" (51.4 cm) and 27" (68.6 cm) Fork Length: Available as 36" (91.4 cm), 42" (106.7 cm), 48" (122 cm) Lowered Height: 2.9" (7.5 cm) Raised Height: At least 7.5" (19.1), but some will raise higher.

                          That's a serious looking trailer - and also shopping cart lol

                          good luck with the move, slow-motion allows for sound thinking when moving heavy stuff.

                            Yeah, but 95F temps and rain and thunder... not so much! Stuff like that can really mess up your thinking. We haven't talked on the forum about rain mitigation during hours of highway driving, but it is a big factor in this move that has been discussed offline. It would not be so bad without straps in the way.

                            A time lapse video of the load and rigging process would be great.

                              RB, I take it back, my KO Lee S718 does not have holes in the corners of the base. I had a S718 at one time that did have holes, but it was a slightly different base.
                              There were a couple different cast iron bases for that model.

                              But not a problem, cut a couple 2 x 4's to fit across the inside of the base, there is like an 1 1/2" ledge all the way around, put a spacer under the center of the 2x and bolt it through the pallet. Basically clamping it down.

                              As far as the removing the table the way you suggested??? If your plate covers the entire surface of the chuck and is flat so it makes full contact, it would probably hold, BUT I WOULDN'T CHANCE IT.
                              I've always used nylon slings. I made a bar, something like this to remove tables from machines. Look at "spreader beams" https://www.google.com/search?biw=16...=spreader+beam
