Now the fun began.
We unbolted the entire millhead, ram and column-cap dovetail as an assembly, and lifted it off with the engine crane.
That, we rolled into the machine shop on the pallet jack, and set it on some dunnage and old tires.
I then removed the powerfeed from the table, and simply unscrewed the whole thing from the saddle.
I estimate the table and leadscrew weighed a good 200 pounds- it took three of us to catch it and carry it into the other room.
