Does anybody have a picture of how to properly pack a Kirby Handi Butler inside the box? Specifically Model 519, 560 or 561? I can never figure out how the handi-butler itself should be placed in the box, and the box that goes inside that folds in half. Any pictures on how anyone does it would be appreciated. There is also that piece of cardboard with the flap on it and I'm not sure which way that goes either.

Vintage Handi Butler Packaging

I have a certain way that I pack the one I have for a 519. I turn the plastic shield on the main unit upside down so it covers the grinding wheel edge. I place the polishing bonnet and disc along with the wheel cups on the bottom of the box for cushioning and have the main Handi Butler unit facing wheel side down. The folding Tool Kit box is packed in an upright position next to it. The cardboard with flap I am not as sure about. It serves as a divider for the flexible shaft and the flap wraps part of it.
