I boxed up the milling machine to send to my friend who bought it from me. I think he will use it better than I did. I made the crates of 1/2" C/D fir plywood, which is close to the price of cardboard per square foot! Each box weighs around 50 lb. Not only will the plywood protect the contents better than cardboard, but the crates should be useful for other things for many years to come.
The lids are attached with M8 flat head hex drive screws, 35mm long, screwed into tapped hardwood struts. I drew symbols to aid in removal and replacement of the lid.
Both are packed tight!
