    Dave had it right. Build two 1/4" thick plates and weld your leg mountings to them. That will strengthen and stabilize the table tremendously.

    We use similar tables for 1k matches at quantico. come up 7-8 Aug and look at them.

    Thanks Bountyhunter and Dave, I'm sure that will take care of the flex. I sorta thought of that, trying to consider weight also. Probably no compromise.... either heavy and NO rocking or flex/ or lighter and More flex.Hmmmm. Happy medium? Sam

    A guy (Karl Young) in the VA 1k club is building the "cats meow" of portable shooting benches. It has adjustable legs and swivel top on delrin rollers (cost $250) I got one and love it.

    If anyone is interested and going to be at the IBS 1000 yard Nationals in Ohio Labor day weekend, he is taking 4-5 to sell there.

    He will not ship to anyone, you have to pick it up at a VA match or at the Nationals.

    Hey Bounty Hunter, do you have way to get in contact with Karl Young? I live 1 hour west of Richmond and could maybe go see him to pick one up. Thanks, Sam
