As many of you know, I am in the military and move quite a bit. My next move is actually in about 24 days :/...
I’ve had to put a temporary hold on any woodworking for the time being to get my tools cleaned up and ready to ship. The Navy is paying for the movers to ship my stuff across the country to the Northern Neck of Virginia.
I have a few questions for anyone here who may have shipped their tools before.
Tablesaw: Should i remove the rails and fence? How about the belt? I guess the belt goes for all the tools really.
Bandsaw: Should I take the blade off this? right now I have it de-tensioned.
Lathe: What to do with the rest/tailstock?
Then on all the tools with the machined tops, what should I coat them with to prevent any rust in transit? I suspect they will be trucked over in a few days, but the entire shipment will be boxed up and stored in a warehouse for about a month.
