band saw

i moved the new saw into place today. it is the heaviest thing i have moved.  my wood gantry crane worked great, with no complaints.  the saw runs like a top and cuts like a dream.

i put the beds on the porter tonight.  it was tricky getting all 4 slides lined up on each bed.  i had forgotten that the movers had slid them off the cart and had moved (luckily not broken) one of  the slide on the big bed, i just had to re adjust it. now for the cutter head, fence, and motor.
