The old westy table I have in my syncro was loose where the metal base attaches to the tabletop. It used a form of captured nuts in the table top to secure it to the base, and those nuts were loose in the wood, and the holes were chipped and enlarged. I had used some glue to help hold things togther but that was a short lived solution. I think the newer Westy tables have a better system of attachment.
So I set about doing a quick fix. I had some scrap 3/4″ thick PVC sheet:
What was I thinking years ago when I painted that base yellow? I need to repaint it. I cut the PVC to size:
And countersunk some 1/4″ bolts:
Then some PL Premium polyurethane construction adhesive ( the poor man’s Sikaflex) to glue PVC to table:
Now I really do have to get rid of the yellow.
