A nice fellow I met is selling a 44" Z3200. I'd like to buy his machine, but am uneasy about the prospect of the 350 mile move. HP suggests no physical modifications to the machine for move preparation, other than a full and formal front-panel shut down. HP suggests that a 10˚ tilt of the machine during transport is acceptable; that turning it fully upside down with be 100% lethal; and the tilt beyond 10˚ is not recommended.
Does anyone have any real world ideas about what angles of tilt are likely to be tolerable? I ask because this particular move will call for movements beyond 10 degree angulation, but I'm not certain enough of all the geometries involved to know whether I need something closer to 90˚, meaning stood up on one end, or not. Further there is the question of what tilt axis is best: front to back axis; or left-right axis.
If we do suffer some damage from over-tilting, I gather it will be a matter of ink contamination. Any ideas about the specific injuries, and what could be done to fix and over-tilt injury, would be great.
