IMPORTANT! DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN THE FASTENERS IN THE FOLLOWING TWO STEPS. DOING SO WILL CRUSH THE TUBES!

1. Assemble lower base tube (#37) to rear brace bracket (#38) using four carriage bolts (#16) and four nylock nuts (#25). Tighten fasteners securely.

2. Assemble rear upright tube (#39) to rear brace bracket (#38) using two each hex bolts (#20), flat washers (#19), and nylock nuts (#25). Tighten fasteners securely.

3.Attach two rear foot brackets (#40) to each other using hex bolt (#3) and nylock nut (#4). These brackets are light gauge steel channels with sharp edges. Avoid touching sheared edges.

4.Attach rear foot assembly

(#40) to rear upright tube (#39) using two each carriage bolts (#16) and nylock nuts (#25). Tighten fasteners securely.

Note: Only one lower brace assembly is shown for clarity.

5. Thread a hex nut (#11) onto threaded stud on front foot (#41) until distance between top of foot and top of nut measures 2 inches. Then place a bellows (#50) over threaded stud and insert it through the hole in the lower base tube assembly. Thread another hex nut (#11) onto the stud and snug top nut against assembly holding bottom nut. Repeat for opposite side. These nuts will be readjusted to level later.
