table dimension question?

Can someone please tell me if the standard large bge comes with a "spring assisted band" or is that an extra accessory .I am designing my table and was going to use a distance of 16" from top-shelf to tabletop on my table (actually 18" because im using a table nest too which raises egg extra 2"). However the diagram on the naked whiz site states that if you have a spring assisted band add 2" to to this measurement as shown in attached link.. point #5. So  this schematic means to make the distance two inches shorter or longer with the spring assisted band???

thanks again.

    I would say make the number 2 inches smaller with the egg

    Not add, if the plan says 16 you want 14. My hinge hit the table ( bought table from dealer ) when it opened. The hinge works on an eccentric motion, so just sitting there closed it clears but when it opens it actually gets closer to table. If I remember correctly 14.75" from where your egg sits (such as on a stone or in a nest) to the table top is the maximum distance for the hinge to clear.My table shelf had actually bowed causing the problem, so keep in mind the weight when building.

    So a spring assisted band is the one that comes standard. Or something extra?
    Why state "raise the shelf up 2" if it has the spring assisted band" what else could it have...the only band available is the spring assisted one isn't it????
