Tips and Troubleshooting
Best tip I have....PLAN PLAN PLAN!!!

Some of the weeks worth of delays were caused by my research and investigation into a better technique.  

Somehow, even with planning the machine is 3 inches taller then I planned.  Somehow I forgot to add the casters.

The circulation fan from Happs, spins too fast and makes a ton of racket.  I had to use a speed control switch to slow it down and quiet it.

Take your time.  This is a piece of equipment that will you will have for a long time.  That means you'll either be glad you did a good job OR always be disappointed in the rush job.
