    Was that the whole meal deal Bud, or is the Fein II still available?

    Hi Scott,

    I didn't end up selling the whole meal deal, only the Desktop and the laptop. I'm going to list the 5.5" Z conversion as I won't need it now that I have the Max. Keeping everything else.

    I'd hang onto the old Fein II also Bud.
    The new ones don't seem to have a power setting...just run full blast(noisier) and vac adjusted by bleeding air.

    OH!
    On Z-Axis Retrofit package....You'll have to add which Z linear rail kit you have....Look at page 2&3 of this...you don't want to sell it to somebody with a different drive rail!!

    Woops... .pdf is too big to attatch...try this link and download;

    I've had a terrible time with facet joint pain due to arthritis in my lower 3 facet joints in my back. I am not able to lift anything. I'm waiting for my son to come help put it from my garage floor to the table in my shop.

    Be careful with the back Bud!
    Have 2 friends down with bad backs(and not cutting right now because of mine) and "stupid" moves.

    Have your son bring a friend!
    Buddy of mine had to get a Max down through basement bulkhead, and the insulated "airlock" he'd built at the bottom.
    It meant he had to tip on it's side(and tight even then), and heavier and more awkward than he'd really imagined.
    Pics are of how he did 2X4 "handles" and protecting against gantry/spindle movement when tilted to get around the 90 degree corner at the bottom.
    HE had TWO friends help and he was basically a "balancer"...and it only cost him 2 pizzas and a couple of six packs.

    Let "Youngsters" do the heavy lifting Bud!
