Jed, the carcass of one that I have is pretty big, but not unmanageable in the back of a car to get home if you break it down. I don't have enough pieces for mine to get a 'working' model, but I'm scrounging now to turn it into the most rock solid copy stand east of the Mississippi. They weigh a ton, and I'm not going to argue with anyone who can one-hand it either.
(The Phototherm is still going strong, BTW. Thanks a million for that one.)
