The three times we moved our Chandler & Price machine we took the *whole*
If I remember correctly, the pieces we then hand carries out of the bindery
The wheel (on top to lower the fence)
The housing for the blade / Heavy!
The table top
The legs/sides, there are two
The arm (to lower the blade) and attached to this are the cross bars
holding the two legs/sides together
The couter weight (AKA: The Little Bastard)
And a few other parts.
Taking the machine apart helped a lot in regards to not only moving it, but
also learning exactly how it works. I have no trouble servicing it myself
after rebuilding it three times.
All told it takes about an hour to take apart and two or more to put back
