Ok... Don't nobody go dissing IKEA after seeing this. Jeez... 

It was definitely a challenge.  Luckily it had step by tedious step instructions.  I was extremely methodical, which made things slow, but I got it together.  There's only one bit where I screwed up - used the wrong width metal plates in a spot.  But it won't affect the integrity of the machine, and I am NOT unbolting the whole upper half to switch out the proper plates.

Wow. You might wear out your magnifier on that...

No kidding!  The pulley system was the WORST.  I do terribly with spatial puzzles/problems, and this was one big spatial puzzle.  Mine, once assembled, looks just slightly different even after following the directions exactly.  It took me a while, but I finally looked it up, and the final picture they use to show you how it's "supposed" to look is from another machine!  I must have stared at those pulleys for an hour, trying to figure out why mine were different.  lol

You have my deepest sympathy. I wonder they don’t include a bottle of champagne with which to celebrate your figuring out their instructions.

I completely agree with the inclusion of alcohol with with to celebrate.  But I have to insist on a good, dark spicy rum instead.  🙂
