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.

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.
Tip: for your photos go to advanced and hit the down arrow on the paper clip to insert the photos into your post. This thread has over 80 views but only 5 views on the photos - folks don't like to click on links.
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.
