As promised, I've managed to take a few photos of the new "baby". So
far, I've only removed the plastic wrapping that the shippers put on
the box. It's still strapped down to the shipping base.
Unfortunately, I won't be able to do much with it for a few days, but
I'm hoping to get the front panels off so I can check out the boards.
I tried removing one last night, and they are very well attached. If
anyone has suggestions for easy ways to remove these, I'd love to hear
In any case, you can see photos of the machine in my garage at
