I'm going to pick up a Colchester Bantam on Sunday and was looking for a bit of advice on moving it. I have a engine hoist, trailer and a van. After looking at what others have done, I think Im going to lift the lathe and fit casters mounted to wood to the bottom of the stand. This looks like the easiest way of moving it to where I need to load it. I'm looking for advice on where to mount rope/chain to lift the lathe, I don't want to damage anything. Do you think it would be best to remove the stand/base or try and lift it in one.
