Got a good deal on a Star Wars machine a couple states away. Anyone have a decent video that shows how to fold down the head, wrap the cabinet, etc.? Thx!

No video but that one is good. I will add that I use a stool vs my self hold it up.
Breakdown: Glass off and remove balls. Secure balls, misc and second keys inside. Glass back on. Lay cardboard or blanket on glass. Drop head down and secure. I use shrink wrap around a few times. Now its ready for the legs. In my case I lift the rear with a stool near by and scoot it under. Pull rear legs and drop to floor. Remove front legs.

Thanks. I have done it myself many times, but the gentleman I am buying from (and meeting to pick up) has never done it. So I was hoping to find one that showed removing the glass, taking the balls out, folding down the backbox, etc.. He's a smart guy (college prof) so I'm sure he'd have zero issue if he just kinda saw how to do it...
