    Good thing I got a tilt bed trailer last year, it came in handy.. As well as borrowing some piano moving jacks..


    With rain in the forecast for Friday, we loaded up the TE150 Thursday night and left it inside. All ready for the 2+ hour drive to it's new home on Saturday..





    With our "trade-in" situated next to the newsed machine, you get a hint to the comparison in size. What you don't see is what is used on the inside. The TE150 uses 1/2" thick steel plate on the sides, the TE250 uses 1-1/4" thick steel plate. Quite a difference, and easily noticed when moving..








    Winch helps with the uphill movement..





    We made another stop and also picked up a small spinning lathe, a Model 18 DuaLathe, and a larger 3 phase converter. The motor size on the Lennox jumps from 1.5 hp to 5hp on the new one, and my present converter is a bit undersized for the occasion. All backed in the shop for the unloading ceremonies..









    Some square pads were cut out of horse mat for mounting, and 3/4" anchors sunk into the concrete..





    ….and let's not forget the requisite safety warning label..






    Still need to wire in the three phase converter, but glad all the moving is complete.

    Thanks for the pics! I could have some fun with that one. My first reaction was that's perfect for bowl turning. I've got my eyes on a couple trees with a good size burl on them. LOL. Thanks Again.

    Finished up the fuel lines at the tank, bending and flaring..











    test fit to the pump.....








    Helpful hint of the day, copper line works well for trial runs...





    Side stepped the area above the third member with the fuel line in case of extreme movement... the Adel clamps floating there will attach to the underside of the floor brace.
