  • Completely dismantled and inspected
  • Every part cleaned and polished.
  • Cast parts have all been smoothed with grinder and belt sander
  • Center divider for base cabinet(s) removed
  • Holes in motor cabinet welded (thanks Jimmy!)
  • Access door cut into front of the support cabinet
  • Frame welded, rails welded and 100 lb. slides mounted
