Man, just got our Lot4 Combo today 6/10/04 and thought I'd put it together tonight. In your redesign of this stand, the instructions being old make it's assembly a Pain In The Ass. First of all, the bottom plate doesn't come assembled, if you DO follow the steps, and put the bottom plate on first, you only waste time, because then you have to take it back OFF because the holes in the mast for the leg pieces are not threaded and you have to put a nut on the inside. Also, the "leg" pieces do not mount with the folded edge shown in the instructions pictures, instead, the angle faces out. So far, with the unexplained differences in the stand assembly, I HOPE there were not any changes to the rest of the parts of the Combo that didn't get an updated instruction manual.
