    Default Grizzly's G0602 10x22 Lathe

    Here is my story of my new lathe.
    First thing about the create, it looked like they made it right be for it showed up. It didn’t even have a scratch on it, let alone broken threw the bottom like others have posted pictures of. It was almost a shame to open it….almost.


    Here is my web page if you want to look at my photo diary of the unpack. I didn’t take to many pictures of the tear down and clean up, SHMBO would not like her camera getting all messy.

    Hey this was very helpful - my G0602 is due to arrive on Tuesday so I know what I am in for! I hope they come earlier than 8pm - I have a Boy Scout meeting in the evening. Did they call to confirm delivery time?

    I have to get mine downstairs through my basement bulkhead - that should be fun. Is that lift yours? That would be handy!

    cheers,
    Michael

    The called and setup an appointment time of noon to 4. SHMBO was going to be home any way. They never came. I was happy to see them, even though it was late. To bad I had to stay up late to “inspect” it, lol. I have a pallet jack and a engine hoist. You have no idea how often I use them. If you can, get a friend to help…..it is challenging enough dealing with the weight, best to have help.

    Some great deals on Phase 2 QRTPs at Enco. They have both the piston and wedge types for 50% off right now. These are sets that come with the post and 5 tool holders. I ordered the wedge version on Saturday and it will arrive tomorrow - along with my lathe.

    cheers,

    Have you tried to take the chuck off yet? That seems to be challenging for many.

    I got my Quick-Change Piston Type Lathe Tool Post and am going to make time this weekend to put it on, but I have to wait for the m14x1.5 tap. I hope MSC is faster then grizzly, lol. I have made a page that will have the full project on it, but it will have to wait for the weekend.

    nothing on the page now but 2 pictures, will post more this weekend.

    I did get my chuck off. It was 1 girly tap, and one with feeling and it came right off. Here is the line to the pictures of it all.

    At the point where you lifted your lathe up on to the stand, do you think 2 guys could lift it and put it up?

    My lathe is being delivered tomorrow - we are getting WACKED by this snow storm (15"+ and still coming down). I have lift gate service and I am trying to decide if I want it dropped in my garage or around back in front of my bulkhead down to the basement. Ultimately, it needs to get down there. I'm thinking about just keeping it crated and sliding it down the concrete stairs carefully. That's how I got my 14" bandsaw and Delta Unisaw down. The snow would add a little lubrication. Once it is in the basement, I need to get it up on my cart/stand. If I have it dropped in my garage, somehow it will have to get carried down in as small of pieces as possible.

    Any recommendations?

    regards,
    Michael

    Well if your crate was like mine you could slide it down the steps with some help…from professional riggers of course.

    Just so you know, it is really really heavy. If it was me, I would bring it to the garage and start parting it out.

    Ok thanks, that's exactly the info I needed. I'll stash it in the garage then. How heavy do you recon the heaviest part is once it is parted out?
