    Guide To Moving Heavy Woodworking Machinery

    Posted here is a PDF I created that shows how I handled receiving and unloading two massive woodworking machines, one a MiniMax 2,100 pound sliding table saw and the other a MiniMax 20-inch bandsaw. I have since sold the sliding table saw, but still have a nearly new (less than two years old and lightly used) MiniMax sliding table saw (Model SC3 Classic).

    I hope this guide can be of some help for those folks getting new machines.

    Johnson bars, and pallet jacks are great things. I was fortunate that both were left in a building on this property when we first bought it. They have been used more times than I can count over those 40 years. The Johnson bar is one of the old, wooden ones, but is Very strong.

    Good job of documentation. I am sure it will help many.

    Nice shop too. Well, maybe with the exception of the two finger rolling DC. It might just suck itself right out of the shop.
