    Geez, see what you mean. Only ones I seem to find are halfway across the country.


    Did I do that?

    I thought about moving it myself with some help but when the wrecker company said $75 hookup and $2 a mile I said I'll meet you there at 11:00.Worst work was rolling it on pipes out of the back of his garage so the roll-on could reach it.We dropped the knee down and rotated the head to spindle up to drop the CG.They winched it up the bed and strapped it down.35 minutes later it was in the middle of my garage.I had to roll it on pipes to the corner but with a big pry bar it wasn't to bad considering it weighs around 2700 lbs.Came with the Anilam X/Y DRO and the Kurt vice.I had to put $150 in it for some motor bearings and a new varispeed cog belt and some bushings in the varispeed pulley.There is the distinct possibility it was less $ than your rifle as well.

    Does this mean the exacto knives will be retired?
