just finished (almost) assembling orion #226. some observations: nice case and machine work. it came with idler gear already in, but by following the instructions(thx) of gurus here checked the orings and did find frt. one bad. on line instructions are out of date. all from 04. the ones in the box were from 4/05, and then one was missing--the one that explains the new bolts. need to call tomorrow. they did not ship the new 10mm ball and spring referred to in the notes. alllin all this thing is nice . very stout. assembled, on the bench it weighs 92 pounds. now just need to get it back in!
