I’m rehabbing an old Jet 3HP cabinet saw and need to get it from my barn to the basement.
I’ve already taken the top, ext. wings and motor down, and now I have to move the cabinet.
Option 1. take the trunnion brakets off and attempt to unbolt the trunnion brackets from the cabinet and then move the trunnion assembly by hand as one piece (I”m comfortable with ~100 lbs.) And then man handle the empty cab down the steps into the basement. The problem here, is I’ve never had this type of mechanism appart b4 and I’m not sure if it stays together of if the trunnions fall out of the ways in the trunnion brackets as soon as they’re free.
Option 2. use my tractor bucket and chains to rig the cabinet (with the trunnions still in it) down the bulkhead and then man handle it onto a movers dolly for the ride to the other side.
Any one had their cabinet saw appart to move it?
Any advise is appreciated.
