It arrived in a really nicely made crate of 3/4" plywood.
It made the trip from Illinois to the B.C. intact.
My daughter helped me unload it and the heaviest piece was manageable by one but easier with two.
I guess I should add it's her machine once I get it done. It like anything for a 20 something kid. I will pay the bills and do all the work and she hopefully will have all the fun. She is taking a CNC apprenticeship at the local community college and I dragged her to the CNC workshop last year. She has some interest and I figured it would be a good learning experience for us. She is almost finished her first 8 month ( All manual machining) and about to do a 8 month work term.
The unit is very well made and I am looking forward to making some chips.
The shipping weight was 274 lbs. And as you can see it solidly constructed.
Time to figure out base for it.
