  • What tools needed to remove BT3000 from stand?

    Hi all,

    I'm going to look at a BT3000 this afternoon, but will need to disassemble it from the stand first. Can someone tell me what tools I would need? I image it's just 4 bolts and nuts? It would be nice to know if there's any tips so I don't spend an hour finicking with it.

    That is actually a VERY good question. I have a BT3100 that I bought used from a member here years ago, never had it off its stand, and a BT3000 that didn't come with a stand... I would suspect it uses Phillips head or allen head screws, with nuts, and washers. I would expect it to be metric.

    Just to be sure, take a set of metric wrenches, sockets, ratchet, metric allen wrenches, and if your luck is anything like mine, magnetic pickup.

    Best of luck!

      All original BT3000/3100 hardware is SAE - fractional inch US threads. No metric fasteners anywhere. Real USA designed and manufactured.

    The assembly instructions require the following:
    • 3/8 inch nut driver
    • Socket wrench with 7/16 inch socket
    • Adjustable wrench
    • 3/4 inch open end wrench
    • #2 Phillips screwdriver
    • Flat blade scredriver
    • Combination Square
    • Framing Square.
    If you can assemble it with those tools, you should be able to disassemble with those as well. I'll bet you can leave the squares at home

    If your only tool is a hammer, you tend to treat all problems as if they were nails.
