    Yes, the block has to be that shape. There is a bolt through a spring in the low area but I might be able to use flat head Allen screws to secure it to the bed. I still think some kind of plastic would be better than wood.

    I'll see if I can post a picture later.

    Carl, I considered making one from some bar stock but I'm not that sure of my ability to do it. If I don't find one my alternatives are to attempt welding this one (Finding someone with a TIG to do it) or making one from a piece of black Delron I have laying around somewhere.
    Does the part where the two screw holes are need to be thin to clear other things?
    Can you just make a hardwood block of the same size but tull thickness of the foot and put some long machine screws into it?
    In other words the screwed down part is not thin but as deep as the foot?
    It would be a rectangular block but not an "L" block.

    It sure looks like you could approximate this with an L-bracket or maybe some bar stock and a hacksaw.

    On that note - made this very rudimentary part by "machining" a block of wood to protect the glass table from the patio umbrella rod.

    (Sorry Pappy I know it is digressing from the subject but just sharing it because I used the DP & Belt/Disc Sander in making it. This group helped me make my decision in buying both these tools and just as so many here said, I find myself wondering how I lived without them )

    Good luck in you finding your part BTW.

    If they need threads to be frequently used then put some nutserts or t-nuts into it. If not used frequently or hard, hey you can easily thread wood for 1/4-20 or 3/8-16 threads.

    I am in need of this part for my WDS 1600 drum sander. Everywhere I have looked shows it discontinued. Any ideas where I might score one? I'll try EBay later tonight.
