I’m new to this site. I don’t know what took me so long to join, I have been looking at posts and reviews for years.
For my birthday my wife got me the g0490x jointer and g0453z planer from grizzly and an order for new bedroom furnature for herself. They will be dropped off tomorrow. Now how do I get them down around the house into my shop through all this snow :) ???

Santa’s sleigh? No really, some type of sled maybe out of some plywood. Congrats on the tools and especially the wife.

Lots of spit and elbow grease? How much you asking for the wife?

Sounds like we have some things in common, new Grizzly tools and awesome wives! I have a Grizzly drum sander being delivered tomorrow and a Grizzly 14” band saw I got two weeks ago. Both, thanks to my wife. Also, I have her to thank for the shop as well. Congrats on your new toys!

I too can relate to having an awesome wife .. she is a huge supporter of my addiction .. I am very fortunate… I told her I would like to go to Hal Taylors “Rocking Chair U” for a one on one session with Hal to learn to build his chairs, and she immediately scheduled vacation time at work so she could go with me. Of course she will hang out and shop, but it is going to be a great holiday. Some of us are very fortunate to have found such great friends & partners to spend the rest of our life with. My life is .. almost perfect… now if I can just get the last of the kids out of the house… LOL

Congrats on the new tools and the awesome support system for your addiction.

I have the same problem here…my shop is down hill and around the back of the house…its murder getting stuff in there with all the snow. Like Clay already said, a sled might work. Be careful, get help…dont hurt your back. Sounds like your wife is a great supporter of your hobby.

they proppebly come on pallet´s so use two plywoodsheeds there can stand on and bend the front
of the plywood up and around …. there you have your slede
ask four freinds over to help you empty a box of beers …..and when they stand there say your
wife has forbidden anyone to enter the shop before the tools and of course the beers is in the
other end of the shop …... get it

take care
