    I just got an aircraft carrier! Update: mobile base finished

    Well saia motor freight showed up tonight. I never new that grizzly used something other than cardboard and styrofoam for packaging their machinery. He unloaded this huge wooden box and put it at the entrance of my shop.
    Luke was inspecting the crates for me.

    I opened the wooden crate and the first thing that came to mind was that they mistakenly shipped me the U.S.S. Ronald Reagan. This thing is huge compared to what I'm use to.

    Yes it does Rob. It's that box on the right side of the baseunder the infeed table. This thing is sweet. The adjustment to move the fence back and forth is so smooth!

    Alan do me a favor and post a shot from above of your fence please? wanna see how its attached to the sliding adjuster. Have a feeling its the same as mine and then would like to know how much play you got in yours.

    I still think mine has issues with the screws on the linkage arm.
    cheers

    I'll get a pic for you tomorrow and post it Rob. I've locked the shop up for the night. Are you talking about the crank that move the fence back and forth or the adjustment to tilt the fence?
