    I store mine horizontal. No issues with the springs.

    All the images from the first part of this thread are long gone. I'll repost them as I can. Since we are in cleaning up, here are some before and after pictures from over ten years ago:

    The lower column bellows is not just cosmetic. It's intended to minimize shiny support reflections on the baseboard. If you remove it, substitute some black flocking etc.

    Yes, plus the camera is off. Just the two round rails, the top spring housing and the camera carrier.
