moving iron

Filed under: wood shop — howarth frank @ 9:40 pm

I brought home the mortiser on Monday but we did not get to moving it out of the truck until today. My parents are in town so my dad helped.  We took it one step at a time and managed to get it into the shop.  We had two close calls. At one point as we had a thousand ponds of iron 4 feet off the ground the chain slipped and the load fell an inch or so. The cheap piece of cr*p harbor fright crane held up. The other was when we had the mortiser on the carts and one of them started to roll down the drive way we caught it in time.
