I thought it was about time I posted the completed project.
With help from my Son we grunted the machines up in place.
They look good, & work real well. The pedestals are good, & solid.
It’s sure nice not to have to bend over to load, & unload now.

I changed to stationary non-swivel casters, but after that I had the problem of them slipping side to side on the smooth floor during the spin startup.You’ll notice I laid down some foam cushion interlocking floor tile, & now it doesn’t move
Now I get a little wobble during spin startup, which is normal even when the machine is installed on
a floor, but after it reaches full speed it purrs like a kitten.
The machine has never moved out of position on the pedestals after a full year of use.
It’s so nice to be able to move the machine in, & out with such ease.

to make clearance for the vent pipe, & hoses when I push them in against the wall.
Notice the foam cushion bumper against the wall
Low level view.
