Installing the Tourmach CNC Mill

We have spent the day removing Josh's Tourmach Mill from his workshop in Chesham. Pretty hefty bit of kit, we tried lifting it on our trust engine hoist.. on the 1/2 tonne position, Josh thought it weight under 1/2 tonnes. Engine hoist wouldn't budge it, turns out it weighs 600kg!. Well at least now we know. Bit of a faff getting it into the back of the van, but no damage done and we both still have all our toes!! must get some steel toe caps.

The most useful bit of kit in our workshop so far.. the engine hoist :)
