Prop a leg meeting upright, and place one end of the 2 × 6 over the decrease cross pieces, with the end of the 2 × 6 flush with the skin face of the cross piece. Align the centering marks and clamp the assembly collectively firmly. At every end of the stretcher, drill two 3/8-inch holes by the stretcher and by means of every of the 2 cross pieces so that there are 4 holes in each end of the stretcher. Insert a 3/eight × 5 1/2-inch carriage bolt by way of each gap to carry the stretcher to the 2 × 4; place a washer and a locknut on the tip of every bolt. Tighten the bolts with an adjustable wrench and remove the clamps. Maneuver the second leg assembly into position at the opposite finish of the stretcher, and attach the stretcher the identical technique to the underside cross items.

Sadly, Saturn fumbled. Unexpected production glitches kept provides tight in the vital early weeks, and preliminary promoting touted “the following massive factor from Saturn” with out giving a clear thought of what the L-Sequence was. In consequence, calendar-2000 deliveries have been just over 94,000. Saturn had projected 192,000 the first yr and up to 300,000 a yr thereafter.
