Tony, could you give us some pics of the packaged saw & the shipping weight? I know how heavy those things are....would be interested in how you get it ready for shipping.

I would like to see that also.  I do a lot of shipping on my Ebay stuff but have never had to crate anything.  I do have a 1/2" banding
setup to tie everything togeather.   Do you band it?

I just bolt the saw to a pallet and put whatever else is going with it in a box underneath. I usually tie it shut and tie the boxes on.
I will get some pictures tonight or tomorrow.
Total weight for this one is 430 lbs with 5 gallons of mineral oil with it.

I guess this would have to be trucked.  Does it get pretty spendy?

Anywhere from $140 to $500, depending on weight, size and how far,  whether delivered to a residential or business address,  is a forklift or loading dock available or is a liftgate truck required, and of course the price of fuel (as fuel costs go up they add a fuel surcharge).

Here is a picture of it on the pallet and hanging from the scale to check the weight.
I think my old scale is out of whack, so Monday I am going to put it in my pickup and have it weighed up town to make sure.

Ready to go onto the truck.


Have a great day.............Tony

So no need for any crating around the saw, just bolt it to the pallet ?

What type of truck is used to transport it ?

Hey Tony.......Great job on the rebuild. Did you getthe bearings from Bearing Supply or a similar shop? I was just offered a functioning Highland Park MIII 18" saw, with a 5 gal. can of oil and a pile of rock to go with it for 500.00. I can't find any info on the internet............Would it be similar to this saw? Any idiosynchrocies I should know about? I have not seen it yet. Its about 70 miles away. So A trip is in the offing.............Bob

I will wrap the hood with some shrink wrap so I have something to stick the address sticker on without hurting the paint, but other than that, it is ready to go. I have found if you put cardboard around the saw, it seems to get abused more than if you just leave it open. I could crate it, but that would add quite a bit to the cost for shipping because of the extra weight.
This will be shipped LTL freight (less than load) and it will be picked up by a semi. It will probably change trucks 3 to 5 times before it gets to where it is going. Once in a while I get one that goes almost all the way there in one truck, but most of them get moved around.

Thanks!
I originally bought the bearings from TheBigBearingStore.com, good price but was dissapointed in the slow delivery. I have already ordered my next set of bearings for the next saw and found them cheaper on ebay. If you need some info let me know and I can send you some links to check out.
I also had some arbors machined for me if you need a new arbor, I think I have an extra one.
There are about 3 different HP designs as they changed over the years. I am not sure which one the one you are looking at is, but for that price I would grab it as long as it isn't a complete basket case. If it was a basket case I would still buy it, but not for that much.
But then again, I really have a soft spot for old HP saws.

Tony,

After seeing how they are built I have a great hankering to get me an HP.

Before that gets here, I'm going to get a set of lock down type wheels to bolt on it's feet.

This saw is still up and running, but it's needing a new motor.
Great saw and a great job by Tony Funk!
