« Part 13: How I got this far... Part 14 of Roubo series Part 15: Hey, want to see a BENCH? »

So [Friday] was moving day, and I had to re-arrange a bunch of things in the shop to make room for a much longer bench. My old bench (soon to be milling machine table) was 64” long, and my new one is a full 8 footer, give or take a few.

Just a few last things on the bench. Had to re-fit and try out the tail vise. Worked great, even upside down!

Then I moved my old bench to the back corner.

... and hoisted up the milling machine. Oy, that was a production. You can see 3 separate moving straps, then I lowered it down to the legs of my 2ton engine hoist while I rolled it around.

I had to roll a LOT of stuff around to make room to swing that engine hoist around. The base of the new bench, and nearly anything not nailed down was moved out of the shop.

After much effort, the machine made it to it’s new home!

Then, we moved on to…. ASSEMBLY!

Good job on being able to move your tolls, equipment and materials in good shape. Moving can definitely be very stressful and it is hard work. Being a part of moving companies Lincoln NE, transferring things like these needs time and effort. Glad you we’re able to do it without much hassle.

Have your say...
