Frameworkers-
Does anyone have experience dismantling and reassembling large and complex copy/animation stands, such as a Forox or Oxberry?

I stumbled across a Craigslist ad for a Forox II 35mm still stand and spent no time renting a UHaul and driving downtown to get it. I got the lights and platen off. I removed the camera from the counterweight system, but I could not really figure out how to remove the camera from the 8/9ft. pole/shaft thing. Iím beginning to wonder if it was a bad idea to dismantle the counterweight systemÖ

Iím going back for a second try next week. Iíd appreciate any advice. We canít lose this dinosaur to the dumpster!!!
