no previous part Part 1 of 36" S A Woods bandsaw restoration series Part 2: cleaning up »

The blacksmith I bought the saw from loaded it on my trailer with a jib crane. He asked me how I was going to unload when I got home and I told him the truth, I’ll figure it out when I get home. I got lucky the trailer was the same level as my shop floor. , and the saw would fit through a 36” by 84” doorway if I took off some parts and the door with no room to spare. I put a 6” by6” across the opposite end of my shop squirted dawn soap on the trailer and floor and cranked it into position with a come a long.

-- Jeff,

I can’t wait to see this. I’ve used the same strategy, “I’ll figure it out when I get home”. I’m glad you both survived.

I didn’t take pics while unloading. It didn’t seem photogenic at the time but after it has turned into a project I wish I had taken more pics.

Once you get pictures, post it in “vintage monsters”. That’s where all the giant tool creeps lurk. I can hardly wait to see it. My 20” Rockwell was so heavy that I swore “never again”. The next week, I was looking at massive mortisers. I can’t stay away.
