OSUSS, thanks for the reply. On the switch delay, I agree that it is something in the software/firmware. My Kia van does the same thing….have to hold the switch for a second or two to get the liftgate or doors to open or unlock. I guess I might get used to that. Maybe if Teknatool gets enough comments they will offer a firmware upgrade but I’m not holding my breath.

mramseyISU, Laguna is in 2nd place with me right now. However, if you wouldn’t mind providing the leg width side to side and the motor overhang when mounted at the far left of the bed, I’d appreciate it. As I said, I am space limited in width and never had the need to turn anything longer than my midi’s 17 1/2” capacity. Also, the midi has the swiveling headstock that I would sorely miss….really saves the back! Thanks.

One other question: Has anyone rigged a portable safety cut off switch that can be placed outside the plane of rotation? I know Nova has a wireless remote, but I can’t find all the remotes I own now plus a box, some wire and a switch has got to be cheaper anyway. If you have rigged one, I’d love to see your design.
