Be sure to locate and remove all parts and tools from the packaging.

Part 1: Parts list

Step 1: Remove all the parts from the packaging. They should include: two Upright Arches, (A), with four Foot Clamps, (B), attached by 8 cap screws, four Cross Bars, (C), with 12 cap screws attached, one Alt Cross Bar with Cross Bar Mount attached, (D), with 3 cap screws, one M.I. Microscope and LS-50 assembly, (E), with 4 cap screws and 4 washers, one C.D.Z., (F) with 4 cap screws and 4 washers, one Riser assembly, (G), (2-Risers and one Riser Cross Bar), with 8 cap screws and 2 washers, 20 Alignment Pins, (H), and two hex wrenches 5mm and 6mm.

Step 2: Start with the two arches as shown in figure 2 placed the distance of a cross bar apart, (see figure 2). Add the two cross bars, (see figure 3a), that have cap screws only in their ends to the uppermost corner holes in the arches, (see figure 4a, b and c). The bars must have the mounting holes up and the smaller stage mounting holes to the inside, (see figure 5). Each bar needs four alignment pins and two cap screws, (as in figure 3b and 4a).
