trading coffee for a treadmill pickup

Postby Orkraider » Thu Nov 11, 2010 10:41 am

Hey all.

I just got a line on a treadmill. I want to take the motor out and use it for either a mini lathe or a spindle sander, most likely the latter.

The guy says it won't fit in a car, and I don't have access to a pickup.

I would like to bribe one of you with 2 pounds of coffee in order to help me get the treadmill from south saint paul to the space.

If anyone is willing, let me know.

I'm hoping to email the guy back quicklike.

thanks!

I was informed that it will not fit in the trunk of anything less than a Volvo 360 GLT.

(That's a lie. I was told it will need something pickupish.)

Well, I tell you what, man, if you're willing to try, I'm game.

I'll bring along some tools in case we have to dismantle some parts to fit it.

I'm at the space now, what's your time frame like?

I'll be here for a bit.

Talk to you soon..
