My jointer arrived.
I ordered the jointer and had it delivered to a friend's business with a dock.
3 of my friends and myself picked it up in a pickup truck.
I am really glad there were 4 of use. The shipping says 550+ lbs. The problem is the base is about 100 lbs and the top is 450.
Here is the path I from my driveway to the basement entrance.

We used ratchet tie down straps to tie the big box to the furniture dolly. This allowed us to roll the big box as much as possible. We did have to pick it up to get over the big steps.

So I got it down to the basement and purposely placed in on two old chest that I use for alternate work surfaces. This allowed me to open up the box and slide the top unit on the the chest tops. Then LOML and I were able to lower it down onto the base. Whew, that was a little scary.
