How nice that must feel!
I see we have the same G0709 lathe. Enjoy yours as much as I do mine. It meets my needs nicely.

liveaboard and BadDog--

liveaboard, yes, I rented it: $175.00/day. I had it for two days. Expensive, but it certainly made the job easier. It was 14' long, just barely long enough. I have a 22' foot, tilt, flat bed. But I have no experience using it to transport anything other than my Komatsu skid steer and my tractor. I was not confident using it for the lathe and mill. The high sides of the one I rented made top-heavy stabilization simple enough even for me.

BadDog, I have some plans for that vacant space, but after building this 6000+ sq. ft. house the budget isn't what it used to be!
