Many of the streets evolved literally from horse trails from the gold
rush days, or logging roads. The area is laced with narrow 2 and one
lane roads that can go for many miles. I've just had so much going on, I
was a bit scattered. I -always- point out the funky street sign. Except
when I forget... While rare, unfortunately for you, it happened when I
gave you directions. If I ever make it up your way, feel free to give
the 'scenic route' directions. <G>
Well you don't want to polish the mirror. It's a front surface, meaning
it's coated on the working surface. I stored it mirror up, but the dust
shows that air sure circulates even in closed storage. What little I did
read about cleaning telescope optics suggested mild dish wash detergent,
and DO NOT use a rag or towel. There's enough info on the web regarding
the topic to occupy you for an evening or two.
As for the Lawyers and Hookers shirt, I got to thinking, some judge
might not like that and slap me with contempt of court or something
similar. Would be great fun, but could be a bit on the expensive side...

I'll steer you to Grants Pass via US-97 Klamath Falls, OR. and back to
I-5 via OR-140. That'll fix ya. <g>
I'm glad I haven't tried to clean it yet. I'd have wiped the coating
"Sorry, Your Honor. I do have another shirt in my briefcase and I'll
change out of this one right now if you like."
One tip: You also might not want to wear it when searching for
(especially while interviewing) a new attorney.
So far Mr. Obama has used his personally exciting presidency for initiatives
that are spending public money on a scale not seen since ancient Egypt.
Hire somebody with the necessary lifts etc to get the stuff out of the
basement and into a container. Then cover everything with plastic.
Shoot a big load of expanding foam in and shut the door quickly. Ship
to the location and put in a shop that is ground level.
Take a second job to pay for the heavy lifting moving etc. You will
not regret this.
Wher are you moving this stuff from and to?
My friend moved his shop from CA to MT in 2 40' containers. He had to hire a
crane at each end to load and unload the containers from the flatbed.
His biggest problem was that he had too much stuff and had to off load some
because it weighed too much.
About the time I had mastered getting the toothpaste back in the tube, then
As a second thought you could just load the machines on to a flatbed. My
friend needed temporary storage at the destination end so he opted for
containers. If weather is a problem the load can be tarped.
If you are not part of the solution, you are not dissolved in the solvent.
Or look for a trucker equipped with a 'curtain van' - basically a flat-bed
complete with integral side winches and tiedown straps but with weather
resistant fabric sides and a top. These seem to be gaining increasing
Pete, please forgive me if I am mistaken, but none of these machines
weighs over 1,000 lbs, right? Hardinge TM seems to come closest at 900
If so, if it was up to me, I would just rent a U-Haul trailer one way
and load it with that stuff. You should get by with just a couple of
dollies and a Harbor Freight two ton crane. You do not need to be a
gorilla to load any of ths machinery.
Getting this stuff out of the basement is a different issue that I do
not know much about. I carried a Powermatic 150 down the basement
once, it was painful.
Before you give up on a rented truck, do some serious checking.
Because one company might have a surplus of trucks where you are and a
defecit at the destination. If most of the moving is going the other
way, you might be able to get a One-Way deal where they usually
wouldn't allow it.
Or look for a third location that does have a surplus of trucks, and
you can go pick up the truck for delivery to the destination city.
Make a dog-leg that is shorter than a full round trip.
The reason it is betterto drive it yourself is that you know the
driver will be careful with the load. Unless you know you can bolt
that iron down in a shipping container or a semi-trailer bullet-proof,
and it can go the whole way without someone tightening the straps
after any hard bumps or unexpected lurches...
