Hello, TomTo help with reassembly, I made a stand.Take a top from a box of paper reams.Cut a piece of 3/4" wood to fit snuggly in the box.Get a 2"×8" galvanized pipe nipple and a floor flange for 2" pipe.Center and screw the flange into the wood and screw the nipple onto the flange. Mount your rotator upside down on the nipple.Much easier to work on AND if you drop some ball bearings (everyone does, eventually) they'll stay within the box lid.As far as aligning, that's done before disassembly by using a marker to make lines on the bottom, the base and the bell to show position.73.
