Hi, I just purchased a Steenbeck ST 921.  I have to transport it approx 100 miles.

Does anyone have any suggestion as to how to accomplish this without

damaging the machine?  Can the machine be broken down - such as removing

the legs and a/v sections?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

Whatever you do, never try lifting up the machine by grabbing the "wood" top.

It's 30 year old fiberboard and breaks very easily. Grab it from underneath the main frame.

If you're lucky, the hard rubber casters are still round and you might be able to easily roll it around.

When the rubber casters flatten out, they won't turn and you're basically sliding the machine.

If you can leave the machine in one piece, it's preferable. 

If you have to move through a doorway, it's often necessary to remove the screen and the extension panel with the fast rewind platter.

If it's still too wide, the front part of the tabletop that extends forward can also be easily removed.

Removing the legs is possible but then it becomes more complicated. Avoid if you can.

 

Cheers,

Jean-Louis
