How to Unload and Move a 5,000 lbs Mazak Lathe

My brother got a heck of a deal on this Mazak 18"x60" gap bed swing lathe at an auction. He had it loaded for him at the auction house but we were on our own to get it unloaded and into position at the shop. If you enjoy watching heavy things get moved, you are in for a treat.

Stay tuned for more on the restoration process!

Greetings @ccssonsworkshop

Excellent work. The relevant security measures were taken.

Regarding the technique, Archimedes said "Give me a point of support and I will move the world".

Now, you have to put that machine to make money!

Absolutely! Thanks for watching!
