New Large Egg in a nest
The instructions read to seat the lower band 'as low as it will go all the way around' which i have. They then read '...bands will be properly spaced by the hinge assembly at the rear, ...you should move the upper band as needed to make the space between the bands equal to the rear on the sides and front also.'
On my egg the upper band at the hinge sits very low on the lid. The lower edge of the band just barely covers the gap between the top and bottom. Seems like it should be another 1/2" or more higher at the hinge.
The threads I've seen in the forums seem to unanimously ignore the instructions in the manual and recommend pushing the bottom one down as far as possible and prying the top one up as far as possible.
I want to get it right before torquing down the bolts until they bend.
Here is what it looks like:
