Make me an offer trade me something that takes up less room. It would make a nice grinder or maybe a coffee table to.

Ah, shipping would kill me, I wish this was closer! This is one on my short (err not so short..) list though.

Where are you located? I have no way to weigh it but I think it could go UPS. I could sandwich it between a couple of pcs. of blue board with a 1/4 inch plywood outer layer. If I could get something close to $100 for the wheel and creating it I would be happy.

UPS runs up to 150#’s and then it moves to UPS freight. The cost difference isn’t all that huge between the two, but I’m all the way to the West Coast so it would be a smidge north of $180 to ship it to me, and imho it would be a bit risky for that far as I’ve had some “oops” with shipping more fragile things (happens, not really anyones fault usually).

This stone looks to be in pretty cherry condition for anyone in the area…

I gave it a good lift yesterday my best guess is 100 lbs add a small pallet and some packaging and you are about there for weight. I have received shipments through Fed X freight and yellow truck that seemed quite reasonable. I bought a 60” roto tiller that came from Ga. to Vt. and I think the freight was around $150 but I picked it up at the Fed x terminal to avoid lift gate charges.
