2.Mounting your XL 650:

A. Locate a sturdy bench at least

24" wide and 14" deep, with 44" of overhead clearance. We suggest a minimum of 1" plywood or equivalent, secured to the back wall. The workbench should be tall enough to place your eye level about 18" above the bench.

Note: It is important that the leading edge of the bench has an overhang of at least 3/4". If the overhang is less than 3/4", the crank will interfere with the front of the bench when the operating handle is lowered. Unless you have Strong Mounts, then none of this is necessary.

B. Tools Needed:

You will need the following to mount and set up your machine:

1. Electric drill

2. 17/64" drill bit preferred, 1/4" - 9/32" OK

3. Mounting Hardware Kit (#14355) or four 1/4" through bolts with nuts and washers

Note: The bolts should be at least 1 1/2" longer than the thickness of the mounting surface.

4. Two 7/16" wrenches if using kit
