In about 2 months I will get delivery for NM200 and Lathe. Both of these machines will go from garage to first floor (4 steps) through 29.5in door and stairs to basement :-( Keeping them in garage is not an option at his point (get too cold during winter).
Mill will not go through 29.5 in door and I need to find folks who can disassemble electric cabinet and perhaps xy table (or may be column) from the mill. Beside furniture and piano movers are there any specialized movers for this type of work (for residential work)? What should I look in yellow pages?
I will hate to give disassembling task to movers unless I get some specialized folks. One of the option I have is to work with my son and remove electric cabinet from the mill. Can somebody tell me newer release NM200 mill depth without the electrical/control cabinet? If depth without electrical cabinet is 29.5 inch or less, moving will be much simpler. I am ready to take out basement door frame to make more room but then stairs will become the bottleneck. Moving the stairs is a major work and real boss will veto my plans so need to keep this under the radar screen.
I bought electric hoist, hand truck, shop crane etc. hoping that I will move the machines by myself but I do not see this happening.
