Construct the counter-weight basket:
1: Apply white glue to both basket end pieces.
(Important: one of the end pieces has a slot cut in it to accommodate the arm. Make sure the longest part of the slot is on the outside of the basket.)
2: Align basket bottom piece with end pieces and nail in place with 1" common nails.
3: Apply glue to sides of end pieces and attach side plates with 1/2" #6 flat head screws.
