feeding that baby ,
will set you back some .

and let it go into the basement on it’s own ?

I hope you have some help getting it into the shop. It looks like it would be a challenge to try and muscle it down the steps by yourself.

Is this new machine one of those models designed for wood?
Those models have always interested me.
I used a metal mill in high school and enjoyed the use of these super accurate machines.
Thanks for showing us the big green monster that’s locked in your basement. lol

thankyou all for comments.

patron & scott, no doubt i really wished this puppy would walk on its own lol!! thankfully my father was a toolmaker for 30 years and we are taking it down in parts. Head, table, ram. but each part ranging from 500-2000lbs. we do a lot of this thankfully with tractors. however because their is no ground level entrance to our shop, it is a task taking everything down a 45 degree incline and then putting the beast back together when its down in the basement.

559dustdesigns, this particular model is grizzlys metal mill model g9903. we plan on mainly using the machine for precision accurate woodworking and them times you just wish your hands were not near the part your trying to machine. and no doubt they are pleasure to use. :)

That is going to be a nice, though I don’t envy getting that into any basement.

our good ole farm tractors and our john deere make our backs much happier thats for sure. when i post pics of the shop u will c the amount of machinery and tooling our movings skills and tractors have brought down for us. we never rush or think we know the way. always think things out and take our time.

Large pics were frowned upon when we all had 56k modems, but most have DSL now and older eyes so the big pics are welcomed, at least by me.

Hope you have an elevator or a wide ramp to drive the tractor down.
