I start the disassembly. Mostly because I had discovered the stuck gib in the knee/column and I had decided how I had to safely remove it. A detailed story of this gib removal if you click here. Anyway, I started by removing the table and saddle (and find that I still have a ton of cleaning to do). More pics than you probably want to see but some of it is documenting for me so I know how to put this stuff back later.
