    Quoted from Bryan_Kelly:

    I just tear shit apart and put shit back together.

    Thats what I do and so far after 30 years they always seem to work when I am done.

    Man you guys are so anal!! I just take everything apart, dump it in a rubber maid tub, then put it back together. Everything uses the same parts pretty much.

    Quoted from Robotoes:

    I disassemble in sections of the PF, and into ziplock bags. Every ziplock gets an inventory - quantity and part type (screw, washer, coil, etc). Photos, lots of photos.
    <clipped> Reference photos as needed.

    This. 100%

    I took apart my TZ before I did my Congo. Its parts are spread out all over... some parts are grouped but everything is pretty much strewn across 5 shelves, and a few buckets and boxes. I wasn't worried cause the machine is so well documented online I figured I could recover from any confusion.

    The cardboard (rigid foam>>cardboard), pool table techniques and the like are a good way to avoid possible confusion. A lot will depend on your experience, game complexity and how long you plan to wait before you reassemble (memory). I assumed the OP was new to this, so slow and easy is the way I'd recommend to go.

    I'm doing SoF next. No laying out of parts is going to happen. Some photos, a few cups or containers perhaps, and that's it. This game isn't very complicated, and the more often you do this the less you need to worry.
