I'm getting my Eight Ball Deluxe set back up after having it in storage for about 14 years. I removed the bolts and ball and stored them in a safe place. So safe, in fact, I can't find them. In another thread, I saw the size of the leg bolts (3/8-16, 2.5 inch), which I bought and attached. I don't know the size of the bolts for the back box. Any ideas?
One of the reasons I had this in storage for so long was that right before we moved from our old house, I realized that the thing never had the proper grounding plug. The plan was to get everything moved, and find someone to replace the cord. I have zero hardware skills, and wouldn't know the first thing of where to ground the thing, or how to do it. In your experience, can an electrician do this, or should I see if I can get an expert to handle this?
One last thing: Is there anything I should be particularly careful of before turning on this machine after all this time? I looked inside and nothing stared, back so there's that.
Any info you can provide would be greatly appreciated!
