    With the cosmetics complete, it is time to assemble everything I took apart. I don't have four individual legs but a rack that is welded together. This is what I call my cradle. Before I place the lower cabinet into the cradle and then the upper cabinet onto the lower cabinet, I thought the cradle should be put into place in the game room and LEVELED. I have search this message board and found that it is important to set things up so that the play field is level from side to side. Front to back only controls the speed of play. My thought is to adjust the leveling feet so that the cross rails of the cradle are level when the cradle is placed in its location. After I have placed the lower cabinet into the cradle, I will double check the side to side level with the play field in place. Only after I begin to play this game will I be able to determine if its play is too fast or too slow.

    This is my first set up...please comment and help keep me from doing something unnecessary. Encouragement is good motivation.

    Frank, glad to here that you at the "back together stage"!!!
    My machine is on carpet ,so, I waited until the head was on
    before I leveled.
    If you plan to get it back to four legs , I would do that
    before I got into any serious leveling.
    I like my game a bit slower so I did not go a perfect level
    on the box. Of course left to right is CRITICAL!!!
    If you do not have any mechanical help to lift, move, the head
    in place, you should get some strong friends to help!!!
