GTG, now you just have to get the oven onto it.  Have you figured that out yet?

Not exactly, but I better pretty quick.  Just gotta figure how to get the forks out, because the base of the cart is pretty mutch the same size as the base of the oven.  Maybe put some boards down between the forks on top of the frame, get the forks out, then jack up each end from the bottom and pull the boards out?

Land it on Ice blocks and then let them melt out.  I've seen a few people use that method, works nice.

Block ice would be the easiest, at least 6 or 8 chunks.

Are you not afraid that the ice would shatter/ crack ?

I'm done.  Time to introduce the two pieces together.

No, I imagine, it is as flat as Houston. Just an extra precaution, you never know...

On stuff like this, I usually throw a shop rag around the base of the wheel where the wheel touches the concrete.  I've never had anything get up and over the shop rag.

FINALLY! I got to put the two pieces of the puzzle together.  It took 2 of us about 2 hours to move the oven about 20 feet and get it put on the stand.  I had a helper to watch and give me direction; I operated the equipment, so if the worst happened it would be my fault.  We blocked up underneath the back of the trailer so the when I moved the oven toward the rear (before picking it up) that the rear of the trailer would not hit the ground.  Forklift over to the frame, nine bricks on top of the frame so that I could backup and get the forks out.  Then I repositioned the forks to under the frame and put 6" blocks on the forks.  Re-lifted the oven and pulled the bricks out and set her down.  There was no blood lost, no cracks in the oven created and only 2 cuss words were used during the 2 hour move. She is home.  Woo Freakin' Hoo.

Thanks Tom, she is beautiful.

Looks awesome - great team effort Tom and Gene.

After you got it on the bricks on the stand, did you set wood or something on the forks where you could lift the oven from under the frame and pull out the bricks and set it down on the frame?

I love pigs. They convert vegetables into bacon.

Nice job! How does she roll?

If the wheels are pointed correctly, it is all I can do to move it, but I can.  If the wheels are not right, gotta us a pry bar to get it started the right direction.
