I Guess I am cheep. I didn’t want to pay the lift gate charge so I went down to the local UPS terminal and picked up my new Grizzly 17”band saw and cabinet saw. Loading and transporting was easy but I had to fall back on my 13 years experience working on a freight dock with a couple of different companies.
I pulled into the driveway with 990 lbs. of machinery and had to devise a way to get the tools unloaded by myself. I had a pair those folding ramps you get at Home Depot and a piece of 3/16 hard board and slid the table saw down the ramps. The hard board worked great because it has a smooth side and a rough side. the rough side held tight to the bottom of the skid and the smooth side Had just enough friction to meter the speed and to keep it from running me over. I would strongly suggest to have two guys to pull this kind of trick but seeing as all our friends have moved out of Florida and family all up north I went it alone.
Houston the Grizzly has landed!
