  You should also remove the motor and ship in a different
box. This is the most massive part of the machine and causes it
to float unevenly in peanuts.There is a site for pdp's that
has the manuals on line that will show how to lock down the
printer. I don't have the URL handy right now but a search
should find it. It is in the classiccmp archives someplace.
