On what cab, Naomi uni I take it?



It does kinder explain it in the Naoimi uni book, which can be downloaded from the resource section of the site.

Basically,



Open CP & remove 2 screws that hold the monitor surrond in place.



Remove the 4 Security Torx bolts, and remove the front.



Remove 4 bolts from monitor cover (at the back) & remove cover.



Remove the 4 nuts holding the monitor frame to the cab.



(You may want to remove the CP at this point to aid moving the monitor, or if you can't be arsed, then don't bother)



Check cables will not get trapped / stretched, and then pull the monitor forwards, away from the cab.



Rotate monitor 90 degrees anti-clockwise.



Put back onto threaded bolts on cab.



Put back on nuts, monitor cover & front plastic.



20 mins max.

We need a youtube video of someone doing this single handly..



I can lift and install monitors no probs, but I can't do the lift-rotate and drop back in one movement..

Geezer,

I can just about dead lift the monitor onto a chopdown.

I had to put my cab on its back to rotate the monitor, there was no way I'd be able to rotate it on my own in the upright position. I was told afterwards that I probably shouldn't have rested the cab on its plastic back in case it snaps but I guess you could rest the cab on something at the top of the legs.



Here's some shitty pics I took on my old phone...

If I feel pumped/angry then I might do a youtube video of this being done!!



Always wear gloves though, I almost sliced my fingers up on the base frame due it its sharp edges!! bloody all over the CP is not a good look.



dj, the pure flat in the chop is more heavier than regular Nanao/Sanwa, the flatter the tube the heavier the monitor.. weird but true..



The Tosh PF is around 6-8KG heavier.
