Need to move a Lathe

Recommended Posts

I bought a lathe.  It's at a  shop in Montebello .  I need to get it moved to Garden Grove.  I only have an enclosed trailer so that's not going to work. Plus, the guy does not have a way to pick it up.   (his forklift is too small.)  I do have a forklift that can offload in Garden Grove 

Anybody here do this?  

I will send a message to OB

Already brought a whole pallet of tooling home.    Hoping OB gets in touch with me.  Lots of guys on Craigslist but not sure what you get out of them.

Also bought a Bridgeport mill from a GD member and have it in storage.  

Everything goes to a new home I'm going to build in Havasu.

(thanks Big Dub!)

He asked me to move it by the end of the year.  His been emptying his shop as he sold the building.

Lathes are top heavy,   Ask me how I know,  I dumped mine over moving it with a floor jack.   OOps,  It hit the concrete hard and busted the casting

That is why I used two floor jacks. You keep it close to the ground while moving. DON~~~

Thanks.  Bryan did contact me.

Plus I don't think I'd ever get it on a trailer with two floor jacks.  Cribbing would be a little too sketchy for me.
