Re: Moving presses et al cross country.
Recently purchased an Orphan Annie caster from
Chris Stern in Sedro-Wooley, Washington. Went
there, built a wide, heavy duty pallet for it and
plastic wrapped it, like a mummy. Called Oak
Harbor Freight to come and fetch it. They came on
a Friday afternoon and by Tuesday morning it was
sitting on the floor of my shop, No fuss, no
muss. Cost? Right around $650.00, for a 1500 lb.
piece to be moved about a thousand miles.
I consider that relatively cheap, since it cost
me about 3 grand to move a Vertical, 2
line-casters and a couple of platens 15 miles to
my new shop locally.
On another note, can someone direct me toward a
Ludlow matrix identification gauge? and/or a copy
of Jim Parrishs' book as I've recently acquired a
Ludlow and all it's Þxin's
