      I agree! I slid my G-1006 off my dad's trailer onto the floor of my garage,
      then uncrated it. I broke it down to head, column, base, and table. Then I
      lifted each piece onto my workbench myself. Then re-assembled it.

      One warning though, if you remove the column from the base you will break
      loose the bondough ( bondo? ) filler they used to make the seam dissapear
      where the base & column meet. Its there for visual looks only, so no harm

      Also ( I guess this is the second warning ) look over the parts list &
      familiarize yourself with the breakdown of anything you want to remove
      before trying to remove it! Who knows it might save you alot of trouble.

      How many of you ave trammed the head? I checked mine out & I'm about .0015"
      out L -> R ( High Side ) and .0015" F -> R ( High Side ) on a 12" dia sweep
      of the table L->R, 9" dia F->R sweep. Now to buy shims & fix it.
