Bigger machine

The biggest machine that my current shop will ever have. This machine has got a solid mill and lathe with variable speed and a 1.125" bore.

 Today was spent trying to get the shipped crate off of my dirt lawn, over a one foot step, through a doorway and on top of the table. At about 660 lbs (plus the 40lbs of other stuff in the crate) this was not an easy task for one person. Engine hoists don't function well in dirt (I had to make a plywood driveway). Very glad that I chose this machine over the gunsmith lathe which was 1,500 lbs.
