« Part 2: Interesting some of the gear Organisations "throw out" Part 3 of Tool Restoration series Part 4: ST-12H maintenance and restoration begins »

This is one of two saws we collected from the school which were destinied for the dump.

Upon returning from Sydney I had to unload it unaided so a bit of igneous thinking was required to get it out of my vehicle.

I slid it to the back of the tray to the balance point and then tilted it down onto milk crates then tilted it upright.

All went without a hitch.

Love the ingenuity in unloading the saw from the ute…top marks sir.

Now a set of machinery floor rollers are whats needed to allow easy movement around the shed…

Robert, Wrestling with a big saw can be a might workout but worth it as they are both cabinet style saws. That weight will serve you well as it will not be moving around your shop and once aligned and properly set up will be an envy of many that visit your shop. Weight is great in the fact that it cuts down on a lot to the vibration as well as the howling of the saw. I am anxious to see your first project from the saw(s). Work safely above all. Jay B
