Sounds like a challenging project - but worth the effort. I'm
afflicted with "heavy metal fever" that's not limited to just radios,
and there are some interesting stories on the web of how home machinists
have moved things like milling machines and lathes into basement
workshops, a process that generally requires at least partial
disassembly and careful planning. Whether it's a 2400 pound Bridgeport
or a 1500 pound RCA, both are beyond the capabilities of most amateurs,
and my suggestion is to consider hiring a professional. A piano mover
may be willing to help you out, otherwise look for a professional
machine rigger who has the equipment and know-how to do the job safely.
I always figure "I can do anything" myself, but when it comes to moving
really heavy stuff, I've learned it's worth the cost and peace-of-mind
to hire a pro.
