Itís been a while

Itís been a while since Iíve been on here. Between work, life, other stuff, and trying to hire electrician, I didnít think I would ever get to this point. Today was the beginning of the downhill slide. Iíll post more soon but for me, today was Christmas in September.

Glad you're back. So what's in the boxes?

All Grizzly brand tools, based on the labels. I was too lazy to look at the part numbers.

Based solely on the shape of the boxes here is my guess: bandsaw, table saw, drill press, lathe, and two others that are too generic to guess. Maybe a jointer and a planer?

How close am I? Anyone else want to guess before the big reveal?

Tool Agnostic. You were dang close. Tablesaw, Bandsaw, Planer, Jointer, & Lathe. I already have a drill press.
I got 3 pieces inside and ďde-cratedĒ on Thursday. Today I have planer & Bandsaw to go need to get skid steer that I used to unload back. Iíll then start on assembly. I do want to go on record and say that there was absolutely no damage. Everything was absolutely perfect condition. I had been checking with them constantly until I caught everything in stock. No back orders.
Here is how I got everything off their pallets by myself. I purposely did not finish my ceiling yet. This allowed me to chain a 4x4 to 2 trusses then using a 3rd chain I connected a 1 ton hoist from harbor freight worked like a champ.

Tool and shop envy are setting in, for sure!

Looking good! Very exciting, it would be hard to determine what to open first! Dust collection?

Saved the beast for last. Taller than my door opening and since it is heavier than a dead minister, it was a booger. I had help. We used appliance dolly and my ceiling mounted hoist. If I had it todo over again I would have installed ceiling mounted hoist on tracks. Hahaha.
For anyone trying to consider whether or not to buy mobile bases: Quit thinking and buy mobile bases. Mine have already paid for themselves. My hoist did a fantastic job getting everything off pallets with the greatest of ease. If not for the mobile bases, getting them to their permanent location would have been worse than pulling hen’s teeth.
