Figured it was time for a break. Workin' up a sweat even though it's chilly out and back is screaming "Uncle". It's happening, and pictures to prove it. After a sleepless night convincing myself I couldn't wrassle a grizzly bar alone I set to the task after a.m. coffee. First picture is with plywood removed. Gotta say, them Chinese know how to pack things. Almost an hour chore there alone. Then I removed the legs, they were bolted on to the main bed with welded steel angle iron things. All touching points well padded and protected. They are heavy suckers. Put in shop near final resting place. Then I jacked up one end of the bed and removed the headstock. Easier said than done. Bed was bolted to the crate legs. After jacking up I found the nut holding the headstock on was 1 1/8". I had almost sold or given away my wrench set for the old tractor. It has 3/4" drive and large sockets. Glad I kept it. Got headstock off and set on sawhorses. Just getting it there was a major grunt and back strain for me, almost exceeded my limit. Very heavy. Next, after dragging the bed across the shop floor, I managed to bolt on one leg. Instructions kept saying "with assistant" . Yeh, sure. "with assistant" [fill in the appropriate expletive] When my sons moved out for college I had to learn to be very resourceful and do things, mainly farm work, alone. No more saying "hold this", "hand me that" or "lift here". That's how I'm doing this. Alone. And me, the original 99 lb weaking. That is until my wife found another man. Emeril. Skinny little guy is now hidden inside an expanding waistline. Still have a few muscles left from cow puncing days. Heavy headstock will get, safely, across shop and on assembled bed. Don't know how yet, but it will happen. More to follow.
