I'm going to be pulling apart the apron on my C-16, probably this weekend, and I'm wondering if there is anything I really need to be careful of. I'm pretty careful and don't force things but we will be using a fork lift and heavy duty straps and things can happen. It appears from when you did it, it's pretty straight forward...remove the back bolts and remove the hex key bolts from the top and or the side of the apron, and gently lift? I will be looking over what you posted over the time you did your big lathe...I even went as far as to print it out and put it in a looseleaf book. I'm looking forward to seeing this machine back up and running well! Thanks for any input you have already done and will do in the future! All is greatly appreciated.
As with pipe organ restoration, it looks daunting to the average person, but we've done quite a few and it's childs play, kinda what doing these machines is for you!
Thanks a bunch,
