    It's here!!!!! New PM3520

    I forgot to post this over here. I took advantage of the WMH Black Friday sale to make the big plunge and upgrade from my 1949 Shopsmith to the Mustard Monster. It arrived on Tuesday Dec. 15....

    Well I left work for a couple hours to take delivery of the lathe.

    Then had to head back to work and will spend the evening opening it up.

    Unfortunately when the truck arrived the power lines were too low, good thing I had a stack of OSB laying around

    Assembled!

    Well when I got home that afternoon, I couldn't open the box fast enough! I borrowed a pallet jack from work to move the crate in the shop and borrowed my dad's HF lift cart to assemble the lathe. The whole process went much quicker than I thought. I had to call my dad and ask him to pick up a plug on his way over. Here are a few shots of the assembly and my little helpers.

    Man....I'm envious.
    Oh, not the lathe. The lift truck.
    Actually, big congrats. Plus, looks like you had a very cooperative truck driver.

    Congratulations on the new toy. So why couldn't the driver back up farther? Looks like he had more than enough room. Or was he just making you work for the new toy?

    Yeah, that should be quite the step up from the ol' Shopsmith. Congrats.
