03:41 pm - FABIO!!!!!
Fabio is here! Squee!

"Fabio" is what I am probably naming my new, utterly marvelous rolling mill. (I've been referring to this particular model as a "studly" rolling mill for years now, so when I decided he needed a name, both the people I mentioned this to immediately said "Fabio"- and so it is.)

Now, I am not yet able to actually SEE Fabio; he is encased in a sturdy wooden crate that allowed his 200+ pounds to make it across the country intact.

But- he's here! And I will try to get some pictures as we uncrate him and set him up (and EEP on the setting up bit- how are we going to lift 200 pounds onto a stand???)

Maybe beg/borrow/steal one of those winches used to lift engine blocks out of cars?

Yeah, something like that. We'd rather not have to attach something to the ceiling, but can if we must.

Well, there are two of you. A hundred apiece?

Heh. Not a chance, especially not me! We will be seeking mechanical aid.
