  • Super complex project today..

    The shop is a bit small, so I find it easier to store things when they are on wheels, that plus I'm a skinny guy, so moving equipment is not my idea of fun.

    Anyhow, my vertical saw is on a busted up skid and is starting to bother me in the looks department, so I got some casters and whipped up a stand to set the saw in, came out nice I think.. No how to lift that heavy saw is the next issue..

    Give it a brake!

    I'm shure you'll figure a good safe way to get that nice saw onto your dollie but,before you do,i have one recomendation to make.At both ends of the dollie,you might consider welding a big nut near each corner so you can have a big long vertical bolt in each.At the end of each of those bolts,weld a pad that will reach the floor when screwed down to act as a sort of jack/stopper to keep the said saw from moving all over on you as you're making cuts.When you need to move the saw,screw those jacks upwards off the floor and away you go with your monster,Frank

      Are the casters welded to the frame?

        If you look closely to the right far one your answer is visible,Frank

              Well

              Jesus that's one big a$# saw! I would suggest finding a way to jack it up and then swap out. That is if you can find some way to go through the machines door to do it. Other than that, I don't know. I'm not familiar with saws that big. LOL!! Good luck.

                OK, all done. It took me and my father about an hour to shimmy everything on, but all is well and it's done.

                Aside from the Dynasty, I think this saw is one of my favorate tools. It also has some history to it as it build the Budwieser burnout chopper some of you may have seen.

                That plus if I told what I paid for it you would probably not believe me, the shop was going out of buisness and I made an offer I thought they would laugh at but they accepted and I took it home...

                It's literally brand new, I just took off the clear protective film on the label plates..

                  That is a great idea, thanks.

                  What I intend to do if and when it finds a perminent or long term spot is to jack it up with the handtruck and sit it on some 6x6 block so the wheels are 1" above the floor.

                  Currently all I use it for is light aluminum, so the weight alone keeps it in place.

                    Well, whadya pay for it????

                    I love to hear good stories about machine finds. I have found plenty myself. If there is one thing I have learned, it is to be patient with regards to machine tools.

                      I lived in Charlotte NC for a while, right in the thick of Nascar central, the saw came from a shop owned by Dale Jr's pit gas guy, and the Dynasty 300 I have came from the Ernhart chassis shop

                      While I'm not huge into Nascar, I thought it was cool that the 2 machines have history behind them..

                        Is that a blade welder built into the front of it?

                          Yes it is.

                          All I need is a coil of blade, it came with about 15 different ones. It will be a while untill those are used up, so no need for the welder yet..
