Nashville Help Before the New Year

Recommended Posts

Hi Nashville shooters,

Would anyone happen to be available for an hour or two of firearms-related labor next Thursday or Friday? I'm a gunsmith, recently relocated to Chattanooga from San Diego. My shop is still active in Commiefornia, so that's where all my equipment is. As I've grown into Tennessee I have come to find that professional gunsmithing is fairly rare out here (the opposite of what I expected, moving to such a gun-friendly state). So, I have decided to buy another lathe, mill, etc. and set up another shop in my new hometown. 

I have a line on a mill and lathe located in the Rosebank area of Nashville. If I get it done, is there anyone who would be willing to help me get these loaded for transportation? I have a hydraulic drop-deck trailer that literally puts the flatbed on the ground, so there's no crazy lift to do, but a 1000# metal lathe is just too much for one man to shimmy around with rollers, pipe and a pallet jack. I'm looking at December 29th or 30th, but I could float it a day or three.

I'd be happy to pay for your time, or even happier to treat you to lunch, talk guns and make new friends.

Merry Christmas!

Glad to hear you are in the area and will be adding to the community with your services.  Unfortunately, I am leaving town earlier in the week.  It would have been great to meet you, give a hand and see a lathe.  I hope someone is available to give you a hand and if someone comes to mind, I'll reach out to them on your behalf.
