Welcome Licorice Pizza (LP) lovers! Setup guides and Vinyl FAQ.
I removed the top part of the Rabco to pack separately and left the bottom bracket on the turntable for the next packing job.
I then attached the Rabco upside down onto half inch plywood and proceeded with the following steps.
I followed that by filling the remainder of the space with bubble wrap and foam pellets. Now the movers can throw with care.
