I also availed myself of the Rocler/Jet free shipping and discounts, but for something less formidable; the Jet Air Filtration System. So yesterday as I'm walking out the door at noon I find out from the freight company that they are scheduling delivery. No problem, "Monday will be fine...."What do you mean it's already on the truck and will be there shortly!" Well I was set to take 91 yo MIL to medical specialist that we had waited a month for an appointment. So with no one home they could just leave it ... oh it's on a semi and at the street is not an answer, but by the garage is OK. Well while at MD's office I get a cell phone call from the driver, for directions to my house over roads he can take the semi and learn it is palletized at 120 lbs which he has to hump up a 100 foot winding icy driveway. Well, I get home last night and there blocking my garage is the Jet carton.
It stayed there last night on the ice and after reading your post this AM decided to move immediately to "Plan B" instead of trying to hump this thing in on the ice. Out came the tractor with frontend loader and it was delivered in the bucket to the front door and slid in on the tile floor. I unpacked it there and have convinced the wife that it should stay upstairs "purifying the air" for a while until I have help getting it downstairs to the shop. Unpacked it's only 85 pounds so it's no big deal getting it down other than the bulky size.

PS When are you and Lee Gordon going to fly down?

Now THAT'S a drive-by! Front-end loader? <G>
I could have carried the mortiser right down to the back door. 8" of snow be damned!
I have lucked out in the sense that anything big I've ordered by mail has always been delivered in a lift-gate equipped straight truck.

After you get the box down the stairs. <G>
Actually, the AFS-1000 isn't bad. It's easy to hold if you remove the filters. I was able to hang mine alone
We should do that soon. Lee and I were going to take a shot a Grizzly, too. I found out there's a $2 regional transit district bus that runs from Williamsport airport, actually stopping right at Grizz! The weekend weather (except today) has been pretty crappy (or screwily forecast), every time I could actually go. Even though I'm instrument rated, the plane isn't icing capable, so passing through a cloud deck is much less of an option in cold weather.
I'll have to watch close and call Lee if we see a chance. The plane goes in for annual the last week of January. It would be nice to hit NJ before that. Today actually would have been nice.

AFS-1500 and it's downstairs chugging away on the bench already so it's safe to come, although I could always use help hanging it or with the 15" planer (another driveby :) ).
I'll be in touch after the holidays, I need some bicycling advice/assistance.
Have a Merry Christmas and hope we get a clear flyable weekend soon.
