OK, my very first “big iron” (a JJP-12HH) is on a truck coming my way, and I have a couple of questions, mostly for folks who have one (or a JJP-12)
a) moving the thing: It’s big, and it’s iron. I know the thing is 600 lbs shipped, but that’s a little hard for me to visualize. Can one (average) person move it with a dolly? Down a few steps? How many people will I need to wrangle this thing into my basement shop with direct exterior access? My wife has made it very clear that she’s not a candidate.
b) wiring the thing: the manual says that it comes with no plug. Does that mean no cord at all? Just 3 screw terminals inside? I don’t really care – I need to add a 230V breaker and wiring anyway, but I’d like to purchase the right stuff in advance.
Any other gotchas I should be prepared for?
P.S. I’ve read very good reviews about this thing, but if you have something bad to say about it, please don’t say it NOW :) I’m a little stressed about the $$$ I just dropped on this bad boy sight unseen!
