First step was to learn how to spin the top on the lifter plate. The instructions on this were actually misleading. It said to use one large brass washer as a starting point. Well, I did that for over an hour, but the top just spins off the plate. Thoughts of sending the whole thing back to Amazon definitely came to mind. I tried again the next day, but decided to go the other extreme of overweighing the top. This made the spinning attempts much easier. After many more attempts I was able to get the top spinning on the plate, but the top would not lift off by itself. At this point, it was just a matter of reducing the weight by removing washers until the top would lift off by itself. A couple of notes on the spinning process: (1) even if the top starts spinning erratically you can help stabilize its rotation by slowly lifting the plate, i.e., don't "give up" on the top just because the initial rotation is wobbly; (2) you have to lift the plate very gently and in a way that keeps the top's rotation stabilized. We are now about 3 hours into the process of working with this device. Just because the top lifts off does not mean it will stay in place above the base. It can veer off to one direction after floating for a second. The next trick is to adjust the legs. Of course, this means you should've screwed those legs onto the base in the first place (another tidbit not mentioned in the instructions). Watch for the direction to which the top floats off. That's the side of the base that will need to be raised by adjusting a leg. Eventually by playing around with those legs the top will float in place above the base. Whew! You should realize that the magnetic field created by the base is very sensitive to its surroundings. So if you move the whole contraption to another location you may have to make adjustments to the legs again.
Was it worth the effort? Sure was! Once you figure it out, it will actually be quite easy to float the top almost every time with minimal effort. I will try to post a video of the floating top.
