Default New Stand

I don't, for the life of me, see how I can use these stands in my particular situation.

Looks to be impossible to correctly level the machine, considering there aren't any feet, just a flat surface.

My floor is wood, and sloping 1/4" per running foot lengthwise to the machine.

I have a similar stand underneath my mill, and it's less than vibration free. Annoying when using a boring head, or taking heavy cuts with other tooling.

Gonna build a new stand (PITA time user upper) out of square tubing that has 4 distinct feet contacting the floor supports/plates.
