The long and short of it, several parts have been lost, mostly the nuts and bolts, me being one of them!
Spent most of the day printing out the owners manual again. Comparing instructions and trying to figure out how the table went together again.
Six hours later and 3 trips to the store for parts, I now have a table put together. During all her moving from here to there and back again, someone, I'm sure it was my bother, pulled the wires out of the encoder.
The machine works fine from side to side but she's stuck on idle going from front to back. :@ (
Amazon doesn't list encoders or the wiring harness. Finally found a place on the east coast for parts and now will wait, impatiently I might add, for the parts to come.
