Maybe it has something to do with the "motion of the ocean".  You know, like
a boat on the water moves with the waves.  Otherwise the water would tear
the boat apart?  I'm reaching here.

I do recall one customer who chose not to buy the carts for their Amaya's
and made a very heavy table out of 2x4's and very thick plywood and decided
to put the savings towards a higher level of software.  He had no table
issues to speak of.
Although my Amaya's are affixed upon their ebony perches.  The easy rolling
wheel makes for easy cleaning on her backside and underneath.

Just as a bit of information we were given while attending Tech Training,
the Amaya machines were designed to sit on their stand (with all the
movement when they rock and roll).  Someone had actually built a steel stand
or table to place their machine on and had all kinds of problems with the
machine.  It turns out that once the machine was placed back on the cart,
all problems went away.  Why?  I don't know!  Just wanted to pass that story
on to you.
