Phil, I have a 1 ton engine hoist you can borrow.
I just recently purchased it to assemble/move my lathe. Lol.

@Phil S if you are moving a table top milling machine, I used a hydraulic lift table (like this one from harbor freight - 500 lb. Capacity Hydraulic Table Cart)
Because there was not a good place to "pick" the machine (no lift eyes and grabbing the head was not recommended.

It was easy to slide on and off the table, onto its stand!

It is more than a table top. The weight limit on the HF table cart is TOO low. This mill has builtin lift points - was nice of them to do this. thanks for the suggestion

I have a two ton hoist that you can borrow, but Charlie's a lot closer to you. Also have several straps to attach to things.

The question is when are you going to move it and do you need a few extra hands? I guess that’s two questions.

What type of mill are you lifting. Engine hoist have limited lifting distance. I have a Bridge Port Series 1 I have moved using a engine hoist to move it in parts.
