Ordered on Tuesday, arrived on Thursday. Way to go, Grizzly!
We slid it off the lift gate of the delivery truck onto the bed of my son’s Ranger pickup and he drove through the neighbor’s yard and into ours. (No rain here for months so the ground is hard as rock… no damage to neighbor’s yard). That got us to within about 15 feet of where we had to be. Took stuff out of the box until all that was left was the main jointer section. The 2 of us carried that in and set it on my workbench still in the styrofoam it’s shipped in. Wasn’t that hard. Probably could have carried it from out front.
ANYways…. COSMOLINE… I know how to dissolve it. WD40, mineral spirits, citrus solvent…. but is this generally done piece by piece or do you asemble this thing and THEN start stripping the “shipping grease” off of it?
Probably won’t get to play with this until after dinner, and after walking the dogs, and after talking to the wife about her work day…... but I’ll get to it and I’m pretty excited to have a new piece of equipment. :)
