The Big Ugly Fat Feller arrived today. All 487 kgs of him sat on the
trailer, just daring me to try to wrestle him off, so, being naturally
stoopid, I did. First I undid the trailer, got a friend (past tense) to
help, used two 4' bits of pine to use as skids and we slid that beast to the
ground (and watched helplessly as the trailer went vertical).
I have been cleaning and assembling for the last 6 hours, had to empty then
refill the shop to get BUFF inside. Fired him up at the 4 hour mark without
a blade and watched happily as the lights dimmed on ignition.
Have got the fence and guards cleaned and ready to go. Had to go and get a
power cord which was missing (dealer will reimburse the cost). I ache in
every bone, and have twinged my lower back - this is a bigger job than I
Can't wait for tomorrow; fence, sliding table and adjustments - then,
sawdust! I'll post some pics later, no strength left in finge...
