    Will do. The good thing is it's only 200 yards or so away from my house.:clap:clap The bad thing is it's only 200 yards or so from my house. :cry:eekers:becca

    Been all over the net and found out I can partially disassemble it. Not sure yet how much that will help. I've heard the remaining will weigh 250 to urr maybe 500 lbs. We do have access to an engine hoist and I'm thinking of building a cradle for the table on wheels so I can at least move it a bit as things are pretty tight in my shop. Besides I still need to make room for more motorcycles!!!!!:lol3

    I cannot believe the stuff that comes with it. :eekers

    I'll try and get some photos tomorrow.

    Okay here goes. Seems my photobucket account has gone through a few changes since my last visit so might take a time or so to get it right.

    Okay so it still works!! :clap

    This is how she sits and like I said maybe 200 yards away.....BUT it is very heavy and takes up a lot of space!!! Currently in the planning stages to find out how in the hell we will get it to my shop. Just a mere 200 yards away :cry:eekers

    Btw every draw is packed with stuff and you can't see a quarter of them in this photo. I probably couldn't correctly name one percent of the contents of those drawers. :norton :dunno

    Oh this could get interesting. :fpalm

    Work out how to lift it, buy some square section steel, make a frame with some decent sized wheels, slide that under it and veeerrryyyy slowly tow it home. Think about it, that's probably the least cost option here.

    Hey Nuggets,

    I have been on Smithy's web site and sent an email to them as well. They have the manual available for down load. So I knew about the four handles and removing some of the parts. There are also some good youtube vids as well.

    However no mention of removing the mill head and I was already considering that. That link will help. I saw a post somewhere that if you remove as much as possible you could get the weight down to a more manageable 250 lbs.

    We have a fairly low trailer with a good tail gate and think we should be able to get it on the trailer. My driveway is 500 feet of dirt and his is probably another 100 feet.

    I'm already planning to build a super strong dolly with steel wheels to move the unit around and to place under the very nice table once in my shop. I already have the steel. I hope to be able to move the whole works a bit so I can still get bikes in and out.

    Thanks much guys.

    Jack and Buck

    I got distracted...

    I've been working on my new saw from the 40s or early 50s...

    I took it apart and cleaned and lubed everything, and changed the gearbox oil.
    [​IMG]

    The blade guide mechanism below the table was all gummed up, and the thrust bearing was bad.
    [​IMG]

    This saw design is interesting. There's a one way clutch in the gear box, so you pull this collar out to unlock the high speed wheel, and the pulley spins free while the gearbox drives the saw at low speed.
    [​IMG]
    The collar and pulley have worn, so now the collar slips out in high speed mode. Previous owner added the setscrew to solve this I think.

    Both belts are installed all the time.

    I managed to score a piece of the foam that @waylongway was talking about. He's right, it does cut real nice on the bandsaw.
    [​IMG]

    I ordered some cool blocks to replace the worn out blade guide blocks, and a new thrust bearing. Once I install those, the saw will be good to go.

    Yup. And he is fun to work for. :nod
    The jet bike project was cool. Totally impractical, but lots of fun to design, build, and test. Hope to do more with it next season. The Spy Car build is progressing well, with a long list of 'features' planned. :augie

    My neighbor loaned me his shop crane.

    I used it to get the lathe back on its feet.

    Leaves! I've got two full days of raking ahead of me. The leaves are barely starting to come down. So many more are still waiting to fall. I have many beautiful trees, so I will have many leaves to rake.

    While I wait for the leaves to fall, I better get ahead on my other projects! :thumb

    My wife and I did 16 large contractor bags today. I expect we will do this twice more before they are all done.

    You are a lucky man with few leaves!

    I'm lucky I have a wooded lot and big ravine to drag my leaves to. No bagging for me.
