So I've been chasing around a local Pin*Bot for a while now. Fella was getting ready to move, it had been in his house for a decade or so. Needs some love. But I got it for a good price (well south of $1k).
Unfortunately due to a combination of circumstances, today was the only workable time to get the machine. A buddy of mine was in the area with his vehicle so it saved me a separate trip. And the owner is moving tomorrow.
So it's the hottest day in NYC like a furnace. The guy already had all of his air conditioners packed up. I was working like mad to get the machine ready. My buddy comes, but we can't leave his car on the side of the street for too long so we couldn't take the time to break the machine down and get it on the dolly so we just carried it down the steps and across the street. We took the legs off and loaded it there. And back to work I go, suit and tie.
Remind me to NOT move a machine like that again!
