  • The Easy Bit!!! The top box is in fantastically good condition (albeit a bit dirty) there’s hardly a mark on it! Turns out the machine ISN’T 208cm high as it states in the manual, of course this measurement must include this top box - its only 174cm, so still pretty large then! 😄 The only problem I have with this part is that it doesn’t light up… But then, I don’t find that out until much later…

  • In The Van Well this is the machine laying in the van. The manual states the measurements as 78cm X 90cm X 208cm, so the problem I have here is that the door frame is only 74cm wide… Now you can see why I told everyone this was an adventure! As you can see from the picture the artwork is pretty much intact, there’s only a few minor rips in it.

  • Disassembly Preparation Took me half an hour or more to get the lock off the back door! Well, I only spent so long on it because I didn’t want to damage the wood at all - plus I don’t have an extension cord long enough to be able to use a drill on it. After much hard graft I finally manage to mangle it enough to be able to put a screwdriver into the lock and successfully turn it - this is my first view inside the cabinet.

  • Disassembled Part #1 A huge great big relief!!! On jemmying apart the bottom of the cabinet it turns out that these cabinets don’t hold together using any glue at all!!! Its held together by wooden dowels spaced out about 3-8" apart across the whole cabinet (including the wooden pieces which are inside the cab which are doweled on each end) then inside the cab there are wooden blocks which are screwed into the bottom/ sides/ top to hold it all together.

  • Disassembled Part #2 Here’s the bottom part of the cabinet with all of the wiring still attached. What I decided to do was remove the wiring from the sides completely and just leave it like this so I could work out where it went back relatively easily. This means that everything is still in the same sort of place it came from anyway so I don’t have to think too hard about where it goes back!

  • Reassembly! With the cabinet laid on its side, me and a friend started whacking it together again! Probably could of used a rubber mallet or something, but of course I don’t have one. It went back together again pretty okay just using our fists to thump it! It seems to stand up pretty well without the wooden blocks, but if a jobs worth doing, its worth doing well… So my Mum says anyway.

  • In The Games Room And here it is!!! 😍 It didn’t work at first because one of the pins that attach to the safety cut off ‘plunger’ had fallen off (which was a heart stopping moment after 6 hours work!!!) But after reattaching, it fired up straight away! In the end I was quite glad to have taken it completely apart because it was absolutely filthy and I could then give it a really good clean!
