BINGO! Thanks, Bob. I nearly wore the pages of my ER collection out
looking. That's exactly what I remember and a great idea I might add.
Those rascals are a little pricey, but I'll check the auction place as
you suggested. Tell me, do you find 24 to be sufficient for easy
movement? The folks I spoke with recommended a minimum of 36 at 75
pounds capacity each for my weight, but I doubt the BT-20 weighs as much
as your Collins. The BT-20-A weighs in at 815 pounds according to the
manual. The base is about 30" X 24".
Thanks again for solving my mystery.
