I worked on one of these for about ten years when multi-image slide shows
were still popular. I've also moved one a few times. The way I was shown how
to move the column was to leave the camera carriage on it, detach it fom the
table, move the carriage all the way to the bottom or top of the column and
tie it down securely. It's been about fifteen years since I've done this,
but it makes more sense to move the carriage to the top and secure it just
so the chain won't be damaged. Hope this helps.
