Somehow, we managed to snag a nice elliptical for $300. The Sole E35 is practically brand new and only needed some creativity to get it disassembled, shoved into the back of a van, transported into the upstairs room, and reassembled.
Like any other tear down / build up, things are usually put back together "more efficiently" than they were before (that means I have leftover parts). One of the main issues I had putting it back together was that a major part that connects an arm to the chassis was missing. Some creative words later, my heroes 3D Printer and CAD came to the rescue, and now the elliptical is good as new. It's not difficult to tell in the pic above which part was designed by me.
