The aircraft carrier, my 16″ Oliver 166 jointer, has taken a 90˚ swing in position and is preparing to leave dock:
I removed the fence so as to lighten the load by 100lbs. or so.
That is one hefty lump of cast iron and it took several hours work to build up a sturdy pallet and wrangle the beast into place. It’s now bolted down so shouldn’t be going anywhere without permission. It will be taking a journey into southern lands, known as ‘Connecticut’, where it has found an appreciative new owner. I’m thinking a multi-gun salute would be appropriate for its grand farewell. It has served me well.
I am out with my fishing rod trying to see what new beast I can land. I’m thinking something longer and wider. Stay tuned.
