Newbie table question....

edited 2:14PM in EGG Table Forum
just got a medium egg yesterday and bought the extra long table from the dealer for the egg, problem is with 3" pavers under the egg I can only open the top half way before the hindge/spring assembly hits the top of the table. I added 2" pavers to the 3" pavers and it clears. the one in the dealers showroom did not have this issue and the dealer is clueless whay I am having this issue. I have a call in to BGE and they have not called back.Anybody have an idea why this is happening?
Thanks in advance.


  • Table must be a couple inches higher than his store table. The specs lowered the table a few inches when that new hinge came out but people still use some of the old plans. Ask him if 2 different people made the tables for him. Also make sure you have your green feet under it when on the 3" pavers

    Thanks for the reply grillin, i don't have the feet under the 3" pavers but I do have 2" pavers stacked on top of the 2" so I have an overall hight of about 5" off the bottom shelf.
  • Hi T.S.B.
    Me personally I think it's best to use the feet no matter what application as that is how the original design of the BGE was intended and it most importantly allows air circulation. You may want to try the feet and might eliminate the need for the 2nd set of pavers.

    Are the legs upside down? You will definetely have more storage this way, so you may just want to add pavers or build a wood stand to go under the pavers.
    We built our table and had the same problem from we lowering the shelf.

    stacking the pavers seem to solve the problem. i was concerned because the one at the dealers showroom didn't have this issue so i thought I was doing something wrong. I will try the feet unser the 3" pavers as Grillin suggested, it would have been nice if the dealer told me in advance!
  • what is the distance between the 2 shelves (top of top to top of bottom)? For a medium the mothership's plan shows 13". [url=[/url]
