Jim,

as it took me 3 years to get the top on, i'm not taking it off again. so this is the best i can do :-)

you can get to the bolt by the door on the front.

the feet with the wheels on,

the bit on the bottom is made from 1 1/2 angle (i think, i should measure it)
that tucks under the base, the wheel have been made to stick out 6mm below this. when you screw the levelling screws down you can push them under the base. then get the ratchet strap and tighten them together. then wind the levelling screws back up.

be careful when pushing it around, the mg-12 is VERY top heavy. wouldn't take much for it to go over.

been playing in the shed again

the beds of OD grinder come in two parts. there is the main part that is fixed and goes up and down the main bed. the other table (the one you can see) sits on top of the fixed one, but can pivot in the middle. when i was cleaning this part up it seemed a bit stiff. thought best do it proper like and take it to bits. the pic shows it was full of this rubber grindings/dust stuff.

the work head was no better. second pic... top right is where the work head is.
