Hi, thanks for watching this base assembly video. I’m going to show you the simple steps to assemble a base correctly. First of all we’ve got the components in front of us. The first thing is that we’ve got an assembly instruction in the pack already for you. We take the rod, making sure that the nuts and washers are assembled in this order. Take the nut off, and this we now look to apply inside the top spider. Simple just to hold it with your finger, spin the rod in, until you feel the rod coming through the nut. Don’t over thread it as you don’t want it to come through higher than the level base plate. Turn it over, tighten the nut up, and using a wrench or spinner, tighten it up. This will increase the stability of the table, and stop any flexing within the post. Place it on the floor and do the top nut. Take hold of the post, you’ll notice there is a sticker; this is to be placed at the top of the base. If you look into the actual plate, you’ll see notches. What we’re going to do is we’re going to use the locater to actually locate the whole post correctly in the right attitude. So that’s now located, pick up the base, you’ll see the actual alignment here. Place it onto the actual post and rod. It’s not located correctly with the spider legs and base legs in alignment. Place the nut finger tight and using a socket or wrench tighten up, making sure there’s enough force to actually retain the whole assembly together. Don’t over tighten, because you may crack the castings with too much pressure. What we’re going to do now is assemble the technology, the pad inside the foot. Here we’ve got the pad, and what we’ve actually got is the Allen key supplied. We take the nuts out of the actual base, and then we place the pad inside the base of the table. So what we want to do now is assemble and secure the pad. Only finger tighten these nuts, you don’t want to over-tighten and crack the plastic of the actual leg itself. Sometimes you may find you need to exert a little bit of pressure, so literally just put your thumb behind and stretch, put the nut in, and tighten with the Allen key provided. Remember only finger tight, and there you have a fully assembled base. We now take the complete base to the table top making sure that the legs of the spider are aligned to the corner of the table on a square base. So here we have the leg inter-aligned to the corner. What we could do is draw a line to the corner, corner to corner, so that we can align the actual fixing points of the table. Then, using appropriate screws, fix the table top to the spider using all the fixing points that are available. So, we now have a complete base and a table top attached, and there you have it. The number one solution to wobbly tables. FLAT engineering stability.
