I have been offered a fabulous saw a wadking cp12dimension saw it ios abeauty trouble is like the many problems of weight I need my head examined but I’m in love it weight 545killos and I have to take it home up a steep drive and round the back of my building up some stairs acro9ss the steep grass then to fit through a door standing on it’s end which needs to be widened a bit about aninch. Anyway now the good news it comes to pieces the top a big cast iron table comes off the mottors two of one for scribing saw and the other for the mainsaw.then the sliding table and components come off and the shell thankfully is steel plate not cast as it’s quite modern.I have three sons and anephew who could help.The guy has agreed for me to take it apart in his workshop then I need to hire a van and on top of this most of my machiones need to be removed slightly moved I should say to get it in and get my other saw out.Do I need it definitely not but I’m 60 next week and if I don’t take a chance and do it now I never will what do you guysthink? Alistair ps remember I am in love

well you can’t get around love
might as well give it your best

sounds like you have it figured out pretty good already

put on you boss hat
and let the boys do the hauling and assembly work
you can concentrate on the pipe rollers and jacking and craning moves

i sure will be envious
but happy for you too

don’t you just love love

Thanks guys Sorry I should have said Bronwen is very encouraging and said it’s my decision should I go ahead I will make about half of the money selling my old saw also with a sliding table but just a toy compared with the wadkin.Alistair

I pushed a 700 lb jointer up a hill with some help once and then
my neighbor came around and said “you should have asked me,
I would have had Rosie do it” – Rosie is her draft horse.

If you’ve got a friend with a big horse, ask for some help.

Alister, living in the States, I have no idea what kind of electrical supply you have in Scotland but the one in the ebay ad says that it is 3 phase. Do you have three phase electric available?

I have single phase in two of my workshops have invertors and rotary convertors to do the three phase most of my machinery is currently 3 phased used with convertors or woodlathe and milling machine with speed control invertors so I am ok. actually my saw which I use already is single but much smaller saw Alistair

That;s what I worrying about what do you guys think of my idea of splitting it up and would you agree with the weight coming down sufficiently with the top off and motors removed? Alistair
