It's a really light machine, and it actually has to be secured TO the floor. Only weighs 1100# plus the cabinets (maybe another 70-100#)

I can run plate under the adj feet, and bolt to that plate.

Remember, I gotta raise the headstock about 1 1/2" to level the thing. Wouldn't be an issue if the thing didn't run all geartrains in an oil bath. Things gotta be level for the right oil flow.

Suppose I could mill riser blocks for the headstock at the required angle, so's the bolt will be plumb to the stands. I can trick the tailstock end for squaring the bolts to the cabinet.
