I’m a newbie here, with an SP-15 (and a smaller C&P of as yet undetermined size) ready to be restored, both in a basement. I checked out the logistics thoroughly today, and it appears I will not be able to move either press fully assembled.
I’ve done a good bit of searching in the archives here and reviewed various folks’ experience moving SP-15s and other models.
I gather I should be able to remove the carriage from the bed (after marking gear locations for proper reassembly), and then remove the bed from the table, giving me three separate pieces to move. (I’m not sure this press has its feed table any longer, though it could be hiding in a corner of this exceptionally dark basement.)
What I’m not sure about is how much each of these three components weighs on its own. Ideally, we’ll be hand carrying them up six stairs (a total lift of 80 inches). But that would assume two reasonably stout folks can lift each of these pieces.
Any idea what each of them weighs?
