Make sure to lube all the moving parts! I use steam oil lots of the time but any lightweight oil should work. Don't forget to turn it upside down and get the parts inside the frames.

Also you will need a lighter of some kind. HAVE FUN!

If you don't have someone to write those instructions - may I suggest Ernie Noa!

He has 16 pages of instructions with photos on how to set up his portable layout.
I never have understood the Egyptian string in the early stages of this process.

Usually the layout is set up complete long before getting through the first page of writing and photos.

Best way to learn is to go to a steamup and anyone there will be more than willing to help a beginner steamer through all the steps. This is how most of us got our start.
