Good Afternoon LJ’ers,
As promised, I decided to upload a few captures of the ol’ saw. Like they say, “She ain’t pretty, but she’s paid for.” I could vouch for the fact that tablesaws are meant to be delivered not placed on the back of a pick-up and hauled for 80 miles! After a roughly one hour drive in the fog to our donor’s workshop, we finally arrived. I want to take the chance to thank my Father-In-Law Jerry for providing the means to transport the ol’ beast.
He came through when it seemed like I managed to bite off a bit more than I could chew (She’s heavy and wouldn’t fit in the back of my ol’ hatchback!). We decided to strap her to the back of his goosekneck hitch and mosey on down Highway 10 back into the dense Gulf Coast fog. All is well though. Thankfully, she made it it in one piece and we even managed to get her back off the truck bed in one piece as well. Okay, maybe two pieces (Base and Top) but who’s counting right (I’m sure I’ll pay dearly for this statement)? When you get a good deal, you can’t look at a horses teeth right? (I’m sure I totally botched that phrase up as well!) So, here she is my friends…the dangerous ol’ right handed tilt Grizzle from another time! I know, I know…I’m probably way to happy for owning such a thing but I am. It’s the only chance I’ve had to own a tablesaw and it’s finally home for the New Year. Now, I need your advice friends (Please keep it positive as I am poor, and can’t afford many tools. This is like a little boy who’s dream came true and I am very thankful to God for what He has provided). Now where did I place them bolts and that socket set?...Hummmm!
Thanks for your time and following me on yet another crazy adventure!
