    It's a beautiful thing!

    I ordered this just four days ago. That includes the weekend. I will give them credit for fast service. I am still waiting on the mobile base to arrive. It shipped from a different warehouse and is suppose to be here on Wednesday. I hope to be making sawdust by this weekend. I spent most of today rearranging my shop to make room for it. I keep so much junk odds and ends around. I threw stuff away that I've kept for over 10 years thinking I will use it someday. Wheels off of an old grill.....frame of an old lawnmower...old telephone parts.....JUNK.

    Anyway...I'm looking forward to putting this thing together.

    I live very near Springfield MO. I am thinking about picking up empty boxes from grizzly and posting photos on this forum just like Tom did!
