Bridgeport Mill

Does anyone know how to correctly remove the head from a Bridgeport mill? Ie, we're hoping to find out where the balance point so we can hang on to it once it's off. Don't see an easy way to do it without lifting eyes
Thanks for any help

Here is what somone else did.

I would have done it a little differently.
Where the loop is I would have extended it a little bit past the top and then lashed the vertical rope near the top to prevent the top from falling away from the hoisting rope. Also I would have used a lifting belt rather than a rope for safety.

His operation appears unsafe.
It almost looks like a "how not to".

They sell hand crank devises for cherry pickers to balance out motors and this should work for a Bridge port as well. Good Luck

My neighbor came down and borrowed my cherrypicker today to install one. I didnt see how he did it but I think he build some kind of cradle for it out of 2x4's.
