Nope. But I moved my Wadkin, which is very similar.
The source was very close to a friend's house, where three of us had
previously spent a whole day struggling to install his massive lathe.
So we tooled up equally and went off to do battle.
It was almost embarassing. 5 minutes with a wrench took the table off
the body, and the fence rails and wings off the table. Then I used a
simple sack truck to wheel each piece into the van, and lifted them in
on my own. On driving home I put it all together by myself. I hadn't
even taken the motor off it.
There were five of us standing around this thing and I'd brought my
hydraulic engine crane with me. None of it was needed. Once you get
that table off, they're a piece of cake.
Putting the table back on is harded, because there's an alignment to
worry about. But you needed to check that and maybe reset it anyway,
so that's no great inconvenience.
